Dabo Swinney has been under fire for the past few weeks due to the way he’s handled the ongoing protests against racial injustice. The latest member of the media to share their thoughts on the Clemson head coach is ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Bilas.
Bilas appeared on ESPN’s Get Up this morning to talk about Swinney’s recent statement. The Clemson head coach released a 14-minute video that discussed the recent controversies surrounding his team and what he plans to do moving forward.
While there were plenty of people in the Clemson community that appreciated the video from Swinney, the majority of the public doesn’t think it was the best response to the current situation. In fact, Bilas thinks Swinney’s statement lacked accountability.
“This is not about Dabo Swinney’s heart or his intentions, it’s about his judgement,” Bilas said on Get Up. “Coaches say all the time that they’re about accountability and no excuses. That’s all I felt that Dabo Swinney’s statement was: excuses, rationalizations and a lack of accountability.”

Swinney has become one of the most polarizing figures in college football over the past few years.
No one will question his judgement on the sidelines, but there are plenty of critics when it comes to Swinney’s business off the field.
With the 2020 season only three months away, the Tigers may have to deal with outside noise. We’ll find out soon enough if they can overcome it.
