Potential Future ACC Coaches

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Here are a few interesting potential candidates for any future openings

Al Featherston raised an interesting point about ACC coaches and who's doing well and who's not. So if there's another wave of replacements, where should the conference turn? Let's take a look.

You'd have to think that the following schools would be the most likely to make a change:

  • Boston College
  • Wake Forest
  • Georgia Tech
  • Virginia Tech

We don't have to deal with Big Ten-bound Maryland, but when one of your radio guys is this critical, it can't be good.

Syracuse has a plan, Pitt is set with Jamie Dixon, Tony Bennett seems like a keeper for Virginia, Brad Brownell is too good not to do well at Clemson and Mark Gottfried will get more time at State.

Roy Williams and Coach K get to keep their jobs just as long as they'd like.

But the others? Here's a list of solid coaches who might be persuadable:

  • Ed Cooley, Providence
  • Archie Miller, Dayton
  • Danny Hurley, Rhode Island
  • Bobby Hurley, Buffalo
  • Mike Lonergan, George Washington
  • Mick Cronin, Cincinnati
  • Richard Pitino, Minnesota
  • Tommy Amaker, Harvard
  • Greg Lansing, Indiana State
  • Craig Neal, New Mexico

Cooley is a former assistant at BC while Neal played at Georgia Tech. Miller loves Raleigh and would probably be thrilled to move back.

Bobby Hurley and Tommy Amaker played at Duke.

The others have no conference ties but might be interested in an ACC opening.

People like Rick Byrd and Bob McKillop will be overlooked, naturally.
