Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney has weighed in on the Trevor Lawrence discussion. In recent days, there has been talks about the star quarterback potentially sitting out for the remainder of his college career and Swinney has also said he is not guaranteed the starting job.
But despite all of that talk, Swinney is not interested in discussing it publicly.
Today, Swinney addressed the issue and said in kind words that all of that noise is really not worth his time.
“I don’t think of it because it is just such a waste of my time,” Swinney said, via TigerNet. “That’s the world we live in. My thing is why play at all? It’s great we have basically have a minor league now. I think that’s great. I think that gives people opportunity if you don’t really value the college experience or value the education and all it comes with it. You have another opportunity now. I think that is great. You can go ahead and go to work just like people do in other sports whether it be basketball, or minor league baseball, or whatever. I’ve never worried about stuff that I have zero control over.”
Lawrence enters the 2019 season as a Heisman Trophy candidate, but he still has to earn the starting quarterback job for Swinney in the offseason.
