“This is certainly another great step for the conference. Notre Dame is a premier academic and athletic institution that clearly fits the model we have in the ACC.
“In terms of basketball, it’s another feather in the cap of the league. We’ve added another program that is really strong in basketball. They have a national reputation and tradition. It solidifies the fact that the ACC has become the premier league in college basketball. Mike Brey is an outstanding coach who does things the right way. He’s stayed the course at Notre Dame and built a tremendous program. His program has sustained consistent success, which is something we all strive to do.
“It will be interesting to see if the addition of Notre Dame opens up avenues in recruiting to the Midwest. I believe we will be able to recruit even more in the Chicago area and in the state of Indiana, places where Notre Dame obviously has a strong name. Most importantly, Notre Dame’s addition is going to bring more exposure of the ACC to those parts of the country due to the television package.”
