ACC is the only Power 5 conference that has not changed coaches after the 2020 season.
The prospects of the meeting have not changed much. Dabo Swinney remains at the top of the list. He led Clemson to six consecutive ACC championships and six consecutive college football playoffs. In our 1-130 coaching rankings, Swinney has remained at No. 2 and this may not change until others win the ACC.
McBrown of North Carolina was another top 10 coach in the conference. He led an impressive two-year transition in Chapel Hill, leading to the sixth day of New Year’s Day in 2020. Tar Heels is the favorite of ACC Coastal in 2021.
Considering the parity of 3-11, it is difficult for other coaches to rank. SN tried it anyway. This is our ACC coach ranking.
The following is an in-depth understanding of our ACC coach rankings (FBS overall records in parentheses):

— Miami’s Manny Diaz has reason to be the third-best coach in the conference, but the disastrous defeats to Clemson and North Carolina indicate that the Hurricanes are closer to the rest of the conference. In the past two seasons, Miami has a 2-3 record against the top-ranked teams, and Diaz has conducted all tests against Alabama at the beginning of the season.
— Dave Doeren has the same record as Mike Leach in the past three seasons. Imagine if the coaches at North Carolina State University spread it every other week. Wolfpack will continue to launch consistent products every year, and if they are in the ACC Coastal Division, people will see them in a different way. The rebound from the bleak 2019 season is impressive.
-If the Eagles can break the habit of around 0.500, Jeff Hafley of Boston College is a candidate to continue to rise. Since 2009, BC has not won eight games in a season.
–Florida State University’s Mike Norvell (Mike Norvell) is another second-year coach in the conference. Nowell’s three-year winning percentage ranked second, second only to Swinney, but two of those seasons were in Memphis. Norvell needs to push FSU back to relevance within the next two years.
