It's that time of year, when coaching searches begin and rumors fly, and fortunately, the ACC should escape most of the madness this year. With ACC Coach of the Year Mike London working out a contract extension and Miami coach Al Golden having already signed his, the league's top two candidates appear to be staying home, and that's good news.
North Carolina, though, could be the lone exception, and according to Brock Huard, it's one of the three best available jobs in America. It's Insider content, but I'll give you an excerpt:
Even though Carolina is still first and foremost a basketball school, the pieces are clearly in place to accomplish what the Texas Longhorns, Florida Gators and Ohio State Buckeyes have done during the last decade: win big in both hoops and football. The school's academic reputation, state-of-the-art facilities and strong alumni base help create the opportunity for the school to have a breakthrough on the gridiron.
It's time to start over at UNC, but the rest of the ACC should finally be able to enjoy some stability this year.
