Aug. 6, 2009

Charlotte, NC – Raycom Sports’ Emmy Award-winning summer television series, “Havoline Football Saturdays in the South,” continues this weekend. This is the fourth of six one-hour episodes, hosted by Tim Brando and syndicated in 60 markets throughout the greater southeast and Atlantic coast.

Clemson didn’t have to look far for the answer when former head coach Tommy Bowden stepped down midway through last season. Dabo Swinney led the Tigers to four wins in their last five games to end the regular season and had the interim tag removed from his title as head coach. Learn how his strong faith has given him hope and strength for Clemson. In addition, visit with his other team, Orange Crush, and see how he keeps a balance between family and the demands of coaching football.

Visit with new Tennessee head coach Lane Kiffin. See how he has quickly become a newsmaker since taking over for the Volunteers with his new coaching staff and outspoken style. Visit his stops along the way to Knoxville, from USC to the Oakland Raiders, and how he has really made Tennessee a family affair.

Host Tim Brando sits down with North Carolina head coach Butch Davis for a one-on-one interview. Talking about his coaching career from high school to college and the NFL, Davis offers a candid look at lessons he has learned along the way. Also hear how his battle with cancer was not his first experience facing the disease.

New Boston College head coach Frank Spaziani has been a loyal assistant for the Eagles, and on an interim basis coached them to a bowl win. Since taking over, he has continued to endear himself to the Boston faithful. Take a stroll down Yawkey Way with the man called “Spaz” and see how this beloved figure at BC offers high hopes for the future in Chestnut Hill.

This weekend’s show will air on WHNS on Sunday, August 9 at 4:00 p.m. in the Greenville/Spartanburg area.
