Is it easier to win at Florida State or Clemson? How about North Carolina or Miami?
Which program provides the most support? Which program has access to the best players? Which program has proven it can succeed at a high level over time? Which program has the most pressure to win?
These are all the questions head coaches must ask themselves when deciding to accept a job or not.
So Athlon Sports asked some respected ACC minds one question: Where would you want to coach if the slates (rosters, sanctions, etc.) were wiped clean and all 14 jobs were available?
