7) Dabo Swinney to compete on Dancing with the Stars
There are some coaches that just can’t resist a chance to dance whenever they get it. Dabo Swinney is one of those guys. A huge part in turning Clemson into a consistent national title contender, Swinney has been known to get down in the locker room every once in awhile. A simple Google search will reveal video after video of him putting his horrible dance moves to the test in front of a room full of players. This is endearing, because it’s a moment where the coach lets their hair out. They aren’t yelling. They’re not coaching. They’re just having fun with their players. It’s good crootin’, but man, Swinney needs to work on those dance moves.
That’s where Dancing With the Stars comes in. The celebrity dance show is the perfect place for Swinney to use his popularity as Clemson’s head coach to springboard himself into the mind of the average American. If he kills it on Dancing With the Stars, every company in the world is going to offer him a commercial to dance for them. He’ll be the famous dancing coach, and best of all, it will improve his dance moves a little.
Best case, Swinney wins the entire thing and gets a cool GameDay segment the next year. Worst case, Swinney dances a little better in the locker room. Everybody wins either way and Swinney gets to have a little bit of fun along the way. Although, if he got hurt on the show, then this would end any chance of a coach dancing ever again. Luckily this is just an April Fool.
