I could understand him being fired for interviewing for another school, especially another ACC school(TOB clause) He was interviewing for an NFL position though, you would think this was an unjust firing, unless they had something in his contract.

The ACC will be middle-of-the-road at best until Miami and Florida State can regain some of the swagger that's been 100% stolen in that state by Urban Meyer and Florida. UNC should be able to be consistently the best team in that conference in 2-3 years along with VT.

DeFilippo must be under some sort of delusion that BC is anything other than a stepping stone to a real destination school...

Now it's looking like he wanted out. That's why he initiated the interview.

Then the school made the right call.

And BC plucked him from the NFL, it's not like they should've known he might try and go back there.

Even though the ACC had a lot more teams go to bowl games than other conferences did (they have more teams so why not?) I believe their bowl record this year was 4-5 am i correct? VT won against the big east champ Cincy. Wake beast Air Force. UNC lost to WV. FSU beat Wisconsin. Miami lost to Cal. NC state lost to Rutgers. Maryland beat Nevada. BC lost to Vandy. Clemson lost to Nebraska. VT, Wake, FSU, Maryland are the winners.

It almost looks as if the ACC going up against other big name conference teams lose. I'm a Tech fan but I know the ACC is no where near one of the top conferences.

Make it 4-6, Georgia Tech got flat out embarassed by LSU.

Overall though, the ACC had a winning record against teams from BCS conferences. In fact, they had the best record against other BCS conferences at 15-8. The ACC was 6-6 total against the SEC.

If he was just fired because he interviewed for an NFL job, I think that's crap.

Read somewhere though that he interviewed without advising the college. I could see them being a tad pissed over that (still not sure i'd fire him over it though, at least not first offense).

The ACC JUST this year got its first BCS win. Its 2009.

Miami, FSU and UNC hold the key to success.

Im sorry but watching an ACC conference game is as exciting as watching C-Span or Chelsea Handler..:cool:

It's happened again.....

The coach at Hampton University (Jerry Holmes) was just fired for looking into NFL assistants jobs. Donovan Rose has been promoted to head coach. Quote from Hampton AD Lonza Hardy...."I felt a dire need to have atop our football program a coach whose commitment, loyalty and devotion to Hampton University were without question". The story says Holmes told officals at the school he intended on interviewing for NFL asst. jobs, Hardy objected. Holmes proceeded with interviews. Hardy fired holmes. The story was printed in the Richmond Times-Dispatch 1-28-2009.
