Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney, a receiver on Alabama’s 1992 national championship team, attended a 25-year reunion inside Bryant-Denny Stadium on Saturday.
A three-year letterman at wide receiver, Swinney began his career as a walk-on before earning a scholarship in 1990. He caught seven passes for 81 yards in his four-year Crimson Tide career, which was capped by the national title in his senior season.
Swinney spent seven seasons as a Crimson Tide staffer — two as a graduate assistant and five as a full-time coach — before accepting a position at Clemson.
Swinney’s Tigers defeated the Tide, 35-31, to win the 2016 national championship on a last-second touchdown pass. One year earlier, Alabama defeated Clemson, 45-40, to win its 16th national title.
