The Clemson football program came under a bit of fire when it was revealed assistant coach Danny Pearman used a racial slur during a 2017 practice. This was clearly inappropriate and the coach issued an apology.

Then Dabo Swinney was thrown into the spotlight when former player Haamid Williams went on Twitter and said the coach used the N-word when talking to players in the locker room. The claim was that music featuring vulgar language was being played loud and Swinney came in and had a problem with that. Yet another former player, tight end Brandon Ford, refuted that statement and said Swinney never used the slur.

Swinney had another prospective coach on a visit and didn’t want the music to make a bad impression. Ford claims that Swinney was upset, but never went as far as Williams claimed he did.

Williams was a running back and had a handful of carries in limited action back in 2013. His initial claims were strong and it is possible they aren’t false. However, Ford’s claim completely contradicts him and the former tight end seems to believe it did not happen.

For now, the conflicting viewpoints cast doubt on the rumor, but Swinney may have to address yet another racial accusation this week.
