13 more college football coach anagrams to go with Dabo Swinney’s “Soybean Wind.”

As you’ve probably heard by now, Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney briefly found himself between John Oliver’s cross-hairs this past Sunday on Oliver’s show, Last Week Tonight. Oliver’s main target was the NCAA but Swinney came up when Oliver included a video clip of him voicing his opinion that college athletes shouldn’t be paid regular salaries.

It should be noted that Swinney has also supported enhancing athlete’s scholarships to make sure they cover the full cost of living, which was not conveyed in Oliver’s segment. Orange and White did an excellent job of providing more context to Swinney’s actual position on this issue.

However, fair to Swinney or not, the full segment raised a lot of great points and did an excellent job of skewering the NCAA. It’s definitely worth a watch, especially if you’re as fed up with the NCAA as I am (if you haven’t seen it yet, you can do so here.)

Thanks to Oliver, Swinney’s name trended on Twitter for awhile after the show aired. Or…a version of Swinney’s name, anyway.

Oliver pointed out that an anagram of Dabo Swinney’s name is “Soybean Wind,” which got me thinking about other college football coaches whose names could be turned into funny anagrams. Surely Swinney couldn’t be the only one, I figured.

As it turns out, a sampling of some of the top coaches from around the country (along with a few of Clemson’s conference foes) produced a lot of great anagrams. Here are just 13 of those coaches and some of the best anagrams I could find.
