The Next #ACC Commissioner: Our Series Compilation

ACC-F

Good evening, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) sports fans.  It’s slowly getting to that dead point in the sports year, right, lol?  The NBA Finals and the NHL Stanley Cup are only going to last a little longer, as well as the College World Series.  What you are you going to do to get your college sports fix?  Make sure you check All Sports Discussion for the best in ACC coverage.

In the past couple of weeks, we’ve looked at some potential successor candidates for ACC Commissioner, John Swofford.  Our site owner, @TalkinACCSports (Jeffrey Fann), has blogged extensively about what Swofford’s legacy might be.

We just completed a three-part series on potential candidates for the next ACC commissioner.  Specifically:

  • In Part 1, we discussed the length of John Swofford’s tenure (and that of his predecessors).  In addition, we featured five external candidates to fill that ACC commissioner position.  Specifically, we recommended Michael Kelly (The College Football Playoff Chief Operating Officer, Michael Aresco (the American Athletic Conference Commissioner), Brad Traviola (Big 10 Deputy Commissioner), Jeff Long (University of Arkansas Director of Athletics), and Jack Swarbrick (Notre Dame Director of Athletics).

  • In Part 2, we featured five internal candidates within the ACC (current Directors of Athletics) to fill the commissioner slot. Specifically, we recommended Kevin White (Duke Director of Athletics), Tom Jurich (Louisville Director of Athletics), Stan Wilcox (Florida State Director of Athletics), Whit Babcock (Virginia Tech Director of Athletics), and Dan Radakovich (Clemson Director of Athletics).

  • In Part 3, we selected five finalists from the ten we features in the Part 1 and 2 blog posts to be the next ACC commissioner.  Specifically, we recommended Michael Kelly (The College Football Playoff Chief Operating Officer, Michael Aresco (the American Athletic Conference Commissioner), Tom Jurich (Louisville Director of Athletics), Jack Swarbrick (Notre Dame Director of Athletics), and Kevin White (Duke Director of Athletics).

We hope you enjoyed the series of articles (if you haven’t had a chance to read the articles, you have no excuse – they are all right here in on location lol).  Thank you for your support of All Sports Discussion.
