An attorney for Clemson University wrote that the Freedom From Religion Foundation misstated the law in its complaint that Tigers coach Dabo Swinney intertwines his Christian religion with the football program.
The school's senior associate counsel Erin Swann Lauderdale sent a letter dated April 24 in reply to the FFRF's complaint. A copy of the letter was obtained by The Associated Press. Swann wrote that her review of the submission showed the FFRF had "misconstrued important facts and made incorrect statements of the law."
Swinney has said he does not plan changes in his football program.
Lauderdale says Clemson continually reviews its programs to ensure the wellbeing of students and keep compliant with Constitutional requirements. She says the school would include the FFRF's concerns in future reviews.
