Dabo Swinney's new contract at Clemson will pay him $93 million over the next 10 years, the biggest coaching deal in college football history. His annual compensation will increase from $8.25 million to $10 million in the later years of the deal. The agreement includes standard buyouts if he leaves for another college head coach spot and a "buyout enhancement" if Swinney leaves specifically to become head coach at Alabama. There is no buyout if he leaves for the NFL. This includes $250K bonus for winning national title and $200K for both making CFP and making CFP title game.

Alabama without question will extend a ridiculous run of 10 consecutive drafts with a first-round pick when the draft kicks off in Nashville tonight. It's the second-longest streak in the common draft era behind Miami's 14-year run from 1995 to 2008. Nick Saban has produced 31 first-round selections in his career, the third-most by a head coach in the common draft era behind Joe Paterno (33) and Bobby Bowden (32).
