With the silliest silly season ever in the forecast, here’s an early look at who will be coaching each ACC school next season:
Logan did some of his best work at Boston College during the Matt Ryan era, and let’s be honest, Coach Logan isn’t going to be in San Francisco next year. Look for the Eagles to stop losing games 6-3 and start winning them 54-52.
Expect Dabo to hit the road and collect a huge payday after a National Championship run, and Larry Fedora is known as “Heathen Dabo” around the coaching world. Okay, not at all. But they both dance in the locker room after big wins and we fully expect Fedora to find a new team who can beat South Carolina.
Wallace Wade won three national championships at Alabama and suddenly left for Duke at the top of the college football world in 1930, and there’s no reason to expect Saban to do any different. This one’s almost too obvious to include, but we’ll leave it in here anyway.
Urbz isn’t exactly at the top of everyone’s Christmas list in Columbus right now, so it would make perfect sense for him to jump to a program capable of winning another national championship. And let’s be honest, he’s not going anywhere with a heavy police presence.
No one rebuilds a program like Cutcliffe, so expect him to be at the top of the Yellow Jackets wish list this off-season. But seriously, Cutcliffe will take this job just to help Peyton Manning learn the triple option in the off-season since his throwing arm is shot.
It’s just his turn in the rotation.
Butch will head home to Miami next season, but will be scrutinized immediately as Charles Robinson blows open the direct connection to Davis and an airplane banner company owned and operated by John Blake after ex-NFLer turned pilot Marvin Austin’s tweet “I fly like paper, get high like planes” raises suspicion.
In an effort to clean up the pieces of a program rocked by NCAA sanctions, UNC turns to no-nonsense Tom O’Brien to head the program. UNC officials would cite the “Triple Play” speech as what put O’Brien over the top for the job. O’Brien will be fired mid-season after PackPride uncovers a scandal dating back to TOB’s time at NC State, leading to the death penalty for the Wolfpack. “Worth it,” State fans will say.
The most deserving assistant coach on the market, Chizik would bring instant improvement to Raleigh on the defensive side of the ball. And he probably has a lot of dirt on UNC that he could share.
Mrs. Graham decides she likes it better in Pittsburgh after all.
Shafer is re-hired after no one applies for the job.
Virginia will be looking for a coach who can win right away at Virginia, and no one has won more at Virginia than Bud Foster’s Virginia Tech defenses. This is a no-brainer.
I’ve heard the grass in Lane Stadium is delicious, and Miles could probably actually pull off recruiting Metallica to play at a home game.
