Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes For The ACC

Our theory for the last couple of years is that the problems the ACC has been having would be fixed by hiring some new coaches.  Mission accomplished: with Frank Haith's move to Missouri, seven ACC teams have changed coaches in the last three years.

Interestingly, a few years ago the ACC had seven African-American coaches. Six of them - Al Skinner, Dave Leitao, Oliver Purnell, Paul Hewitt, Sidney Lowe and Frank Haith - are gone.  Only Purnell and Haith left voluntarily.
