The recent arrival of Blue Ribbon’s football preview at D1scourse headquarters made it much easier to piece together an annual treat: The list of alums (both head coaches and assistants) from ACC schools who are plying their trade at one of 120 major college programs.

Virginia and Virginia Tech both had nine. Maryland had three, although one of those (Lamar Owens) played his entire career at Navy. The other two former Terrapins on the list are Jim Panagos (Central Florida) and Jafar Williams (Kent State).
