Some ACC Coaches Have A Real History Together

This is kind of cool to consider

NCAA Basketball: North Carolina at Pittsburgh
Among other AC coaches, Roy Williams and Jeff Capel have a history

We thought it would be interesting to see which ACC coaches had had experiences coaching against each other before joining the ACC. We stretched it a bit in Coach K’s case to see what assistants had either coached with or against him at Duke or other ACC schools.

It’s interesting to wonder what history, say, Jeff Capel and Roy Williams have from the Big 12 and how that informs their games now.

Forgotten fact: Syracuse was an Independent prior to joining the Big East in 1979.
