London Named ACC Coach Of The Year

Virginia's Mike London was named ACC Coach of the Year, finishing well ahead of Beamer, who was second place, and Clemson's Dabo Swinney, who was third.

London got 31 votes from members of the ACC Media Association, Beamer 12 and Swinney 2. 
The Cavaliers went from 4-8 in London's first year to 8-4 in his second and will be headed to a bowl game for the first time in four years.

“More than anything, I am extremely proud of the performance by our players and coaches,” London said. 

“This is really a reflection on their efforts this year. Quite honestly, I do not think there were very many people outside of our locker room who felt we could go into the final week of the season with a chance to advance to the ACC championship game. As a coach, you live for the kind of moments where your team buys in, puts in the work and the effort and sees the positive results that come from it.”

Luckily for London he's not coaching at Maryland where last year's ACC Coach of the Year was fired after a 9-2 season and a bowl victory.

  1. Congrats to London. He's done well with the team so far.
    I'm not usually a big one for the conference system, but I've learned a few things this year. I did get some Outback Bowl tickets and I've got plans to be in Florida this December. Not a bad deal if you ask me.
