A former Clemson player is taking a shot at head coach Dabo Swinney, who he claims created a culture of racial insensitivity.

Former Tigers running back Haamid Williams claims that Swinney used the n-word when addressing the team, as he claims he didn't want them playing songs with that word in it when guests and prospective coaches were visiting.

Williams rarely got on the field for Swinney, mustering just three carries for three yards as a running back in 2013.

This Swinney story comes days after it was alleged that special teams coordinator and tight ends coach Danny Pearman once used a racial slur when talking to former Tiger DJ Greenlee. This could be a sign that there is something rotten going on at Clemson, with Swinney and the coaching staff at the center of it all.

While this story is far from being confirmed as fact, it could be a very damning indictment of Swinney and the coaching staff if it's true. Swinney, the university, or anyone who could have been connected to this story has yet to put out a statement confirming or denying this tale.
