Swan attended Yorktown High School, where he was a starter at linebacker. He accepted a football scholarship from the University of Virginia, where he was a four-year starter at linebacker. As a senior, he led the team with 125 tackles (third in school history), collecting 58 solo tackles and 67 assisted tacles.
He finished his career as the school's second All-time leading tackler (373), after making 181 solo tackles and 192 assisted tackles.
In 1987, he was signed as a free agent. He was released on September 1. After the NFLPA strike was declared on the third week of the season, those contests were canceled (reducing the 16 game season to 15) and the NFL decided that the games would be played with replacement players. He was re-signed to be a part of the Dallas replacement team that was given the mock name "Rhinestone Cowboys" by the media. He started 3 games at middle linebacker. On October 27, he was placed on the injured reserve list.
