ATLANTA (AP) — Clemson's Dabo Swinney is the Home Depot Coach of the Year, and Hunter Henry of Arkansas is the John Mackey Award winner for the nation's outstanding tight end.

The awards were announced Wednesday and will be presented Thursday night as part of the College Football Awards Show at the College Football Hall of Fame.

Swinney led the Tigers (13-0, No. 1 CFP) to an undefeated regular season, Atlantic Coast Conference championship and No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff. Clemson will play Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl on Dec. 31.

Swinney's Tigers have won 16 straight games, the nation's longest active streak.

Henry led all Southeastern Conference tight ends with 46 receptions for 647 yards. He hasn't dropped a pass this season.
