Now & Then: Danny Ford

As we return to the fascinating world of past and present pics of our favorite ACC personalities, our focus today turns to former Clemson coach Danny Ford...

Now


Then


Ah, that "Then" photo. Danny Ford became the head coach at Clemson at the ripe young age of 30, guiding them to the national title in 1981 at 33 (extremely impressive considering I'm 34 and spend a great deal of time typing in a blog while in my boxers). Alas, that "Then" pic revealed the shadier side of coach Ford, as he candidly showed those new recruits how to carry the bundles of cash offered to them.

As for the "Now" photo, apparently Danny Ford's dad showed up at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Tigers '81 national championship.
