Wasn't exactly his tune during the UNC investigation.
Swofford will hold this position until Coach K tells him that he shouldn't. He does realize that while implicating Self and Kansas, what has to be inferred between the lines is that Duke won the bidding war for Zion Williamson, right?
John Swofford played football at UNC and was the athletic director in Chapel Hill for 17 years before becoming ACC commissioner. He is not beholden to Coach K. If anything his close connection to UNC has been a source of contention for the folks in Durham.
He generally refrained from commenting on the UNC investigation mostly because he has a conflict of interest. The allegations overlapped his final years as AD.
He did make some comments about how long it was taking, and how long the Miami investigation took, and that he thought the NCAA needed to figure out a way to streamline its process, which is not unreasonable.
Less than a year for all three coaches. Nothing's going to change in recruiting. Smh....
Unless they received reduced sentences for singing, and we see Sean Miller in an orange jumpsuit. . .
Tattoo 9 months in prison other two 6 months. There are bribery trials coming up. Even though sentences weren't that great their careers in sports are over.
Sorry, these were the Adidas guys who paid off the players. Not the ongoing investigation of Will Wade, Sean Miller, Chuck Person, etc. Doesn't change the fact that schools aren't exactly dropping their Adidas deals. We'll see what happens as this continues to unfold, but seems like a light penalty for high school/college sports corruption.
Dang I'm tired of spell check changing my spelling. It was Gatto and not Tattoo.
Many down this way wanting LSU to go ahead and fire him, as well as waiving their invite to the tourney. I think that's crazy, play for today and so forth. But fans think the ncaa will come down extremely hard if LSU is defiant and that maybe if LSU punishes itself it will be lighter of a sentence. The pressure has been wildly ratcheted up to make a swift move. That coaching hole will be very interesting to see.
Have LSU and Will Wade been at the forefront from the beginning? Their inclusion in this is new to me, but I've only been tangentially following this investigation.
Having your school/team connected to something like this is way more “disgraceful” or “embarrassing” than a poor game performance.

This is LSU which is in the SEC. Disgraceful and embarrassing isn’t a major concern.
Wade has officially been suspended by LSU.
Well the masses got their wish. This move is due dillagence...he's going to be fired. I'd grant Sampson overwhelming odds of the ncaa didn't hate him so much and LSU to be desperately trying to run from any ncaa hammers.
Having the Feds knock on your door is much different than the NCAA. Coaches are now looking at time in the slammer.
Wow, lots of schools offered money as mentioned in his testimony.
Been meaning to post this all day
