Coach Danny Ford: Clemson’s First National Championship


Coach Danny Ford took over as head coach at the end of the season in 1978…just in time to coach the Tigers to a win in the Gator Bowl.  It would be just a few short years later that Coach Ford would show the sports world that this small southern school was National Championship  material by defeating Nebraska in the 1981 Orange Bowl. Coach Ford is a legend around Clemson, SC and I am honored to have spent a few minutes with him to talk about his success as a head football coach and what he thinks about the Clemson Tigers chances of winning another national title.
