Fresh off a $93 million contract extension, Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney has been making the rounds. In the past week, he has reportedly caught a Golden State-Houston playoff game in Texas, a Phillies-Cardinals game in St. Louis, and yesterday, another NBA playoff game in Toronto.

Swinney was spotted getting a little pickup game workout at the Toronto Raptors arena before taking in the Raptors-76ers game. By the looks of it, the Raptors gave him a good welcome with some Raps gear and a little time with unofficial Toronto Raptors mascot Drake.

Of course, some are worried that Drake’s so-called “curse” of sports teams may rub off on Clemson’s two-time national championship winning coach. Drake was showing off Alabama gear earlier this year before Clemson beat them to win the most recent national title.

For what it’s worth, with Dabo on hand Tuesday, the Raptors crushed the 76ers, 125-89.
