Ranking the ACC's College Football Coaches

    |

From Athlon Sports:

1. Frank Beamer, Virginia Tech (25 years)

2. Paul Johnson, Georgia Tech (5 years)

3. Al Golden, Miami (1 year)

4. Mike London, Virginia (2 years)


5. Jimbo Fisher, Florida State (2 years)

6. Jim Grobe, Wake Forest (11 years)

7. Tom O’Brien, NC State (5 years)

8. Dabo Swinney, Clemson (4 years)
Alma Mater: Alabama (1990-92)
Record: 29-19 (2008-present)

Tommy Bowden was fired midway through the 2008 season, opening the door for Swinney to serve as Clemson’s interim coach. The Tigers finished the year 4-3 and made an appearance in the Gator Bowl against Nebraska. Swinney was hired as the full-time coach after the regular season finale against South Carolina and has posted an overall record of 29-19 in his tenure. The Tigers have made two appearances in the ACC title game under Swinney’s watch and won the conference crown in 2011. Swinney is regarded as an excellent recruiter and has assembled a solid coaching staff with Chad Morris as his offensive coordinator and Brent Venables leading the defense. However, the Tigers had a disappointing 6-7 record in 2010 and if Clemson struggles in 2012, the blame is going to squarely fall on Swinney’s shoulders.

9. Larry Fedora, North Carolina (First Year)

10. David Cutcliffe, Duke (3 years)

11. Randy Edsall, Maryland (1 year)

12. Frank Spaziani, Boston College (3 years)
