DESCRIPTION Inducted June 12, 2003 A 6'11″ center, Gminski played 14 seasons in the NBA. He had an outstanding collegiate career at Duke where he was named ACC Player of the Year for the 1979-80 season. A two-time All-American, Gminski is Duke's all-time leading rebounder and shot blocker. He was selected by the New Jersey Nets as the seventh overall pick in the 1980 NBA draft. During his seven seasons with the Nets, Gminski established himself as a tough player and helped lead the franchise to the playoffs five times. In his final season with the Nets he averaged 16.4 points and 8.8 rebounds before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers. In his first season with Philadelphia, he averaged 16.9 points and 10 rebounds per game. The following year he averaged over 17 points per game and led the 76ers to the Atlantic Division title. During his NBA career, Gminski scored more than 10,000 points and grabbed over 6,000 rebounds, a feat accomplished by only a handful of players in NBA history. INDUCTION BANQUET PROGRAM STORY — June 12, 2003 EXCELLENCE AND CONSISTENCY By Tom TarapackiNPASHF Board Member / Polish American Journal More than twenty years after leaving Duke University, Mike Gminski's name remains prominent in the illustrious basketball program's record books. The former two-time All-American remains the Blue Devil's all-time leading rebounder and shot blocker, and third-leading scorer. But when his collegiate playing days ended, the 6-11 center also enjoyed an outstanding 14-year NBA career, and is one of only a handful of pro players to score more than 10,000 points and haul in more than 6,000 rebounds. The great-grandson of a Polish immigrant from Karkow, Mike Gminski was born on August 3, 1959, in Bridgeport, Connecticut. He grew up in nearby Monroe, where he attended Masur High School. Encouraged by his parents, Mike played tennis, baseball and football, and developed into one of the state's best high school basketball players. He was also a very good student — so good that he was able to leave high school a year early, a fact that most college recruiters overlooked. Mike struck up a friendship with a Duke player named Terry Chili at a basketball camp, and decided to make the Durham, North Carolina school his first visit after his sophomore year. He “fell in love with the campus” and committed to the Blue Devils. At Duke, head coach Bill Foster was trying to rebuild the program that had not been to the NCAA tournament in more than a decade. It became apparent very early that his freshman center could help him do just that. In his first season Gminski averaged 15.3 points and 10.7 rebounds for the 14-13 Blue Devils, and was named Atlantic Coast Conference 1976-77 co-rookie of the year. As a sophomore Mike averaged 20 points and 10 rebounds, earning first-team All-ACC honors. Even better, the Blue Devils posted its first of three straight 20-plus win seasons. Duke also won the ACC tournament for the first time since 1966, and made the NCAA tournament field. Mike had an excellent tournament, including a 29-point performance against Notre Dame in the semi-finals. The Cinderella Blue Devils made it all the way to the 1978 national championship game, where they battled valiantly but lost to Kentucky, 94-88. Mike had 20 points and 12 rebounds in the game, and was named to the All-NCAA Final Four team. As a junior Mike had an incredible season, leading Duke in scoring (18.8), rebounding (9.2), blocked shots (66), dunks (44), and field goal shooting (51.9%). He earned All-American honors and was named ACC Player of the Year. Duke complied a 22-8 mark and qualified for the NCAA tournament, but lost in the first round to St. John's. In the 1979-80 season the talented center was again a first team All-American, posting career highs in scoring (21.3), and rebounding (10.9). Mike also set a school single-season record for blocks with 97. His senior season also marked the third time that the history major was named an Academic All-American. That season Duke struggled down the stretch amid rumors that head Coach Foster would leave following the season. The Devils were seeded sixth for the ACC tournament and had little hope of landing an NCAA bid unless they won it. Duke responded by beating the top three seeds and winning the ACC crown. Duke advanced to the regional quarterfinal of the NCAA tournament before losing to Purdue. Gminski ended his collegiate career with numerous school records, and still holds Duke's career records for rebounds (1,242) and blocked shots (345), and is third in scoring (2,323 points). His jersey, number 43, was retired by Duke shortly after he left the school, and he was later inducted into the Duke Sports Hall of Fame. “G-man” was then selected in the NBA drafts first round (7th overall) by the New Jersey Nets. Gminski helped revive the struggling Nets, who made the playoffs in five of his seven seasons. He displayed a consistently outstanding all-around game, and was particularly known for his shooting touch. In fact, in four of his NBA seasons he hit better than 50 percent of his shots from the field. Gminski came into the league at about 240 pounds, but bulked up to as much as 270 pounds. Following his rookie season in New Jersey, Mike contracted a serious infection in his back after having surgery on an injured elbow. He was in critical condition for three days with a 105-degree temperature before doctors were finally able to successfully control the infection. His weight fell from 265 pounds to 215 pounds during his hospital stay. Mike was traded by the Nets in 1987, after enjoying one of his best seasons (16.4 points per game, 8.8 rebounds per game). He was among New Jersey's all-time leaders in several categories. He was second in games played (550), third in minutes (13,638), rebounds (3,671) and blocks (599), and fourth in points (6,415). Gminski went to Philadelphia, where he continued to excel. In his first season (1987-88) with the 76ers he averaged a “double-double”, with 16.9 points and 10 rebounds (along with 118 blocked shots). The following season Mike enjoyed his highest scoring average (17.2) as a pro as the 76ers won the Atlantic Division with a 53-29 record, but lost in the playoffs to Chicago. Those 76ers teams were among the best that Mike played on in the NBA, but he enjoyed the camaraderie as much as the winning. “The closeness of the players reminded me of my teams at Duke,” he recalled. In 1990 Mike was dealt to the Charlotte Hornets, an expansion franchise in its third year in the NBA. He has had a good first season upon his return to the state of North Carolina, but suffered a herniated disk. Injuries began to take their toll, and in 1994 he was traded to Milwaukee for Frank Brickowski in what was basically a salary move. Not wanting to become a “basketball vagabond” jumping from team to team, Gminski accepted an offer from the Charlotte Hornets to join their broadcast team. He stayed there for eight years, until the franchise moved to New Orleans, and then Mike joined the Fox Sports Net telecast team as a lead analyst. He lives in North Carolina with his wife, Stacey Anderson, and their son, Noah. Gminski continues to receive recognition for his athletic achievements. Last year he was named to the ACC 50th anniversary team. He also was named to the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame. He was also chosen as one of a group of 25 finalists for induction into the Verizon Academic All-American Hall of Fame. While Mike Gminski is widely considered one of college basketball's greatest players, he certainly does not receive his due as a professional athlete. He was not a flashy player who drew headlines on or off the court, but Gminski's career totals are quite impressive. They include 10,953 points, 6,480 rebounds and 989 blocked shots. He was skilled in all facets of the game, and was a well-linked and respected teammate wherever he played.

Drake Maye is staying in Chapel Hill. This is what you hoped would be true of this young man based on who he is and everything he's said. In an offseason where he's lost multiple players to the transfer portal (Storm Duck, Tony Grimes, etc.) AND his offensive coordinator and offensive line coach, news that the now-reigning ACC Player of the Year is sticking around is a massive building block for Mack Brown. On the other hand, who will Coach Brown get to run the offense that Drake Maye will helm? Host Isaac Schade proposes his two major candidate targets (Dan Mullen, Garrett Riley) and makes a choice between them. Hubert Davis' basketball team is back in action on Saturday against Georgia Tech, looking to leave behind a current four-game losing streak. Will Armando Bacot be healthy enough to play? Will we see a more cohesive offensive? Will the Tar Heels finally string together a full 40-minute effort? We'll find out.

Welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. What a welcome back to the FSU-Miami rivalry, Mario Cristobal. Better luck next time. Happy victory Monday to you our listener. Your Florida State Seminoles are now bowl-eligible after a thoroughly, dominant and I mean dominant 45-3 win over Miami this past weekend. Thanks so much for tuning in. I'm Brian Pellerin on this Monday, November 7th. Apologies for the late timing on this podcast this week, we're trying something different by recording on my Monday lunch break after Mike Norvell's usual Monday press conference. We start this afternoon in the obvious place and that is Saturday's blowout in Miami Gardens. The Seminoles asserting their will early taking a huge lead into half and never looking back. The stars on the day — Trey Benson who posted 15 carries for 128 and 2 TDs and then the FSU defense holding Miami to just 3 points in the game that came on their first drive. Otherwise, it was a lot of 3-and-outs plus turnovers. The Canes simply never had a prayer in this one. The stadium started emptying out in the second quarter and looked more like a normal Miami home game throughout the second half. Benson and OL-man Dillan Gibbons earned ACC Player of the Week honors as well. The victory puts Florida State back in the top 25 of the AP poll. They still remain a bit of a ways out in the coaches' poll. The college football playoff rankings drop tomorrow night. This week's opponent Syracuse, no longer in those polls after dropping a third straight game. That one was a battle of teams playing without their top offensive player. Cuse going without QB Garrett Shrader who appears to be moving close to a return after warming up this past weekend and Pitt is without their star running back. Either way, it was Pitt who came out victorious so Noles headed to Syracuse to face a team on a losing streak, desperate to right their ship. Oddsmakers like FSU as they opened as a 7-point favorite on the road. Outside of the field, two headlines in Tallahassee. First coming Saturday night when the broadcast showed Mike Norvell and Deuce Spann on the sideline where Spann was clearly frustrated as Norvell tried to get his head back in the game. Asked about it today, Norvell said “It's about me helping to get him back to where he's in control — when you get to that point, your mind can race to a million different places... He apologized and I just told him I loved him.” Norvell received some praise online for how he handled that moment. The other coming from a potential transfer off this team. This morning, Sam McCall posted online a note that he was entering the transfer portal, but later deleted the post, saying he made it off emotion. So it appears he will remain with the team for the time being. That is certainly something that could come up in this week's Tribe ‘23 Recruiting and Portal Thread with our experts Josh Pick, Tim Scribble, and David Stout. They've got the details on everything you need for potential roster shakeups in both recruiting and the portal. How about the ACC champs? Did you hear about that? Your reigning national champion FSU soccer team has added another trophy to their resume as they picked up the ACC title in a really even 2-1 victory against North Carolina. Florida State has now won nine of the last 12 ACC titles. Incredible run for that program. The NCAA tourney selection show is this afternoon at 4 so it may be out already depending on when you're listening to this. Good luck going forward, Noles. Let's go back to back. Hoops season is here also as the FSU men's team opens their year tonight at 7 pm against Stetson. The FSU women already rolled through its first opponent with a 113-50 win against Bethune Cookman this morning. That'll do it for today's Noles News Now. Until next time, I'm Brian Pellerin.

One of the most prolific players in University of Miami women's basketball history returned home in April 2021 as Shenise Johnson became the newest assistant coach for the Canes. Johnson donned a Miami jersey from 2008-2012, finished her illustrious career near the top of the Hurricanes' leaderboard in numerous categories. She ranks first all-time in steals (401), second in rebounding (1,020), third in scoring (2,262) and fourth in assists (556). Johnson is the only Cane to reach 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds at Miami. The guard helped the Miami program make monumental strides during her time as a Cane, taking the team from a 2-12 ACC record in 2008-09 to becoming co-regular season ACC Champions (12-2) in 2010-11. A two-time Associated Press All-American and the 2011 ACC Player of the Year, Johnson not only took the Canes to back-to-back NCAA Tournaments, but also helped the program achieve its highest ranking (fifth) in program history. Following her time at Miami, Johnson became the highest-drafted player in program history when she was taken fifth overall in the 2012 WNBA Draft by the San Antonio Silver Stars. She spent the next nine seasons playing professionally in the league, averaging 8.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists in her eight-year WNBA career. Johnson also played professional basketball overseas in places like Slovakia, Turkey and Israel. The Miami sideline is a familiar place for Johnson as she most recently spent the 2020-21 season working as the coordinator of player development for the Canes.

Jose “Keno” Gandara accepted the position of head volleyball coach at the University of Miami on March 20, 2013, becoming the second head coach since the program returned in 2001. In Gandara's ninth season at the helm in 2021, Miami returned to the postseason for the first time since 2017 and fifth time under his direction. The Canes advance to the second round of the tournament in the Gainesville Region, ultimately falling to site host Florida. UM finished the season 25-5 overall, with 15 wins coming by way of sweep, and 15-3 in conference play on its way to a second-place finish in the ACC, all program bests under Gandara and the most wins in a season since 2012 when the team posted 26. The Hurricanes finished the year ranked 14th in the RPI and 25th in the AVCA Division I Coaches Poll. Individually, the Canes saw success with Gandara's leadership as Savannah Vach, Janice Leao and Angela Grieve earned regional recognition. Vach and Leao earned AVCA East All-Region, while Grieve was an all-region honorable mention. Leao also garnered AVCA All-American Honorable Mention. Vach added to her resume with All-ACC First Team, while teammates Grieve, Leao and Priscilla Hernandez were tabbed All-ACC Second Team. Peyman Yardimci tallied a strong freshman campaign to earn a spot on the All-ACC Freshman Team. The trio of Grieve, Yardimci and Hernandez rounded out the Canes awards as all three garnered ACC All-Academic Team honors. Gandara led Miami as one of the top blocking teams in the nation. The hurricanes ranked 16th in the country with 2.65 blocks per set and 32nd with 284 total blocks. Behind his leadership, the Miami was among the top in the ACC in several categories at the end of the regular season. The Canes were sixth in hitting percentage (.244), second in opponent hitting percentage (.188), fifth in assists per set (12.51), third in total blocks (271) and blocks per set (2.63), second in digs per set (15.23) and fifth in total digs (1569). The Hurricanes returned the NCAA Championship in 2017 for the fourth time in five seasons under Gandara's leadership. Miami won its first postseason match since 2014, defeating the College of Charleston in the opening round of the tournament in a Gainesville, Fla. The Canes fell to No. 2 Florida in four sets in an exciting second round matchup to close the season 22-6 and finish with their best winning percentage since 2012. Senior outside hitter Olga Strantzali was named ACC Player of the Year and AVCA East Coast Region Player of the Year. Strantzali was joined by redshirt junior setter Haley Templeton on the All-ACC First Team and AVCA All-East Coast Region team. Strantzali and Templeton topped off a memorable season with AVCA All-America Honorable Mention recognition. The Canes both started and finished the campaign strong, winning the first nine matches and the seven contests prior to falling to second-seeded Florida. Miami topped the ACC in service aces with 1.71 per set and finished the season in the top three of two additional categories – hitting percentage (second with .246) and kills (tied for third with 13.64 per set). In 2016, Gandara led a resilient Miami squad that proved to rise to the occasion when it stepped into an opponent's gym. The 2016 Hurricanes won 11 matches away from Coral Gables, picking up big road wins at Notre Dame and Louisville. Junior outside hitter Olga Strantzali developed into one of the best players in the country, receiving AVCA All-America honorable mention and earned AVCA All-East Coast Region and First Team All-ACC honors. Strantzali and freshman setter Hannah Sorensen were named to the All-ACC Academic Team in recognition of their success on the court and in the classroom. Gandara led the Hurricanes to three straight NCAA Tournaments in his first three seasons at the helm of the Miami volleyball program. The Canes were selected to the 2015 NCAA Tournament, where they faced Iowa State in a first round match in Madison, Wis. The Canes finished the season 21-10 and 14-6 in the ACC, while Miami's 21 wins marked the second consecutive 20-win season under Gandara's leadership. The Hurricanes saw seniors Alexis Mourning and Taylor Scott, as well as sophomores Olga Strantzali and Haley Templeton, named to the 2015 All-ACC Second Team with Strantzali and Templeton also earning AVCA All-East Coast Region Honorable Mention. Miami reached the NCAA Tournament for the sixth consecutive season in 2014 and seventh time in program history. The Hurricanes, who finished the season 22-9, defeated UCF in five sets in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The victory was Gandara's first NCAA Tournament win as a head coach. Miami's 22 wins also gave Gandara his first 20-win season at the helm of the program. The Canes reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to No. 8 Florida in four sets. But Gandara helped develop several players to reach unprecedented levels of success. Senior outside hitter Savanah Leaf was named 2014 ACC Player of the Year and a second team AVCA All-American, while freshman Haley Templeton earned ACC Freshman of the Year honors. Leaf was joined by senior middle blocker Emani Sims on the All-ACC First Team, while Templeton was picked for the All-ACC Second Team and the All-ACC Freshman Team. The accolades continued for the trio as Leaf and Sims were named AVCA East Coast All-Region selections and Templeton was tabbed as the AVCA East Coast Region Freshman of the Year. The 2013 season was filled with firsts for Gandara. He secured his first win as a NCAA head coach on Aug. 30, when Miami defeated Austin Peay, 3-1. Gandara collected his first home win when Miami beat LSU in five sets on Sept. 14. The first-year head coach tallied his first ACC win when the Canes defeated Boston College in five sets on Sept. 28. Gandara also guided the Canes to their fifth straight NCAA Tournament appearance and first under his tutelage. The Hurricanes dropped their first round match against Oregon in three sets, but 2013 was still a successful first season under Gandara. Miami had four players earn All-ACC distinction, including Savanah Leaf and Emani Sims (first team), Alexis Mourning (second team) and Ryan Shaffer (third team). The Canes defeated No. 12 North Carolina at home and earned one of the coveted 64 spots in the NCAA Tournament. Gandara came to Miami after spending eight years as an assistant at the University of Washington. He previously served as an assistant at UNLV and his alma mater, UC Santa Barbara. Gandara is a highly-respected teacher who has played and coached at the top levels of college and professional volleyball. Keno assisted former Washington head coach Jim McLaughlin with all aspects of coaching, including opponent scouting and contributing to the Huskies' defensive package. The Huskies won a National Championship in Keno's first year on staff, 2005, and reached the 2006 Final Four. Gandara began his coaching career at UCSB in 1992 as an assistant with the men's team and was an assistant with the women's team in 1994. He also spent one season as a head coach/player with the San Juan Volleyball club in the Puerto Rico Professional League. A San Juan, Puerto Rico, native, Gandara graduated from UC Santa Barbara in 1990 after a successful volleyball career with the Gauchos as a middle blocker. Gandara was a first team All-America selection in 1989 and second team selection in 1988 after leading UCSB to the national title match. He was also a two-time all-conference honoree. Gandara has also been inducted into the UCSB Hall of Fame. He also represented both the United States and Puerto Rico in international competition as a member of their respective national volleyball teams. Gandara is married to Stephanie Cox who was a standout setter at UCSB and played on the AVP Tour. The couple welcomed their first child, a son named Lucas, in April 2011.

Dabo Swinney with Joe Rose & Joe Z interview 8-26-22

An illustrious coaching heritage is embedded in the foundation of Clemson football. At the dawn of the 20th century, the Tigers were led by future College Football Hall of Famer John Heisman. Hall of Famers Jess Neely, Frank Howard and Danny Ford followed in Heisman's winning tradition. Now entering his 15th season (and 14th full season) as Clemson's head coach, Dabo Swinney has already carved his name into that foundation, elevating himself amid a pantheon of Clemson greats by becoming the first coach in program history to lead Clemson to multiple national championships. Swinney's stratospheric start to his head coaching career placed his record not only among Clemson legends but also among the names of the winningest leaders in the more than 150 years of major college football. With his final win of the 2021 season, Swinney reached 150 career wins in his 186th game as head coach. In terms of games played, Swinney became the sixth-fastest coach in FBS history — and the fourth-fastest in the modern era — to earn 150 career wins, trailing Urban Meyer (176), Gil Dobie (180), Barry Switzer (180), Fielding Yost (184) and Joe Paterno (184). Entering 2022, only 16 coaches in FBS history including Swinney had accomplished the feat within 200 games, and 14 of the 16 had been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, with the lone exceptions being Swinney and Meyer, both of whom are not yet eligible. The 150th win came in Swinney's 13th full season and his 14th season overall including his seven-game interim stint in 2008. He moved into third place in FBS history for the most coaching wins in the first 15 seasons of a head coaching career, trailing only Meyer (165) and Bob Stoops (160). Swinney will have the opportunity to take aim at both in his 15th season as head coach in 2022. Though other seasons resulted in more hardware, analysts and observers opined that 2021 might have been Swinney's best coaching job, as the Tiger mentor guided his team through adversity and attrition to overcome a 2-2 start to finish 10-3 and extend Clemson's streak of consecutive 10-win seasons to 11. Clemson entered that October as one of 28 Power Five teams with two or more losses, yet concluded the season along as one of only two of those 28 programs to finish the season having reached 10 wins. Swinney's 2021 Tigers played seven one-possession games, one shy of the school record, and went 5-2 in those contests. The squad's success came in spite of tremendous turnover and attrition, as 48 different players earned at least one start, eight more than started in the pandemic-impacted 2020 season. Only 23 Clemson players played in all 13 games, and only four offensive or defensive players started all 13. Between injuries and transfers, Swinney held aloft the 2021 Cheez-It Bowl trophy following a game Clemson finished without the services of 30 scholarship players from its initial fall roster. A year earlier, Swinney's squad accomplished its “double-double mission” in 2020, going 10-2 in a condensed season to give Clemson 10 consecutive 10-win seasons. Clemson became only the third program in FBS history to accomplish the feat and became the first school to win 10 games in 10 straight seasons as a member of the ACC, as only the final nine of Florida State's record 14-straight 10-win seasons came during the Seminoles' tenure in the ACC. The pandemic-affected 2020 campaign was a historic one for the Tigers both as a team and individually, as quarterback Trevor Lawrence ascended to become the winningest quarterback in school history (34-2) and running back Travis Etienne added the ACC's all-time rushing crown (4,952 yards) to his arsenal of school and conference records. Etienne's versatility as a rusher and receiver earned him consensus All-American honors as an all-purpose selection, while Lawrence became the second Heisman Trophy finalist in program history, tying Deshaun Watson (second in 2016) for the highest finish in Heisman Trophy voting in school history. The prolific backfield duo under Swinney's tutelage helped guide Clemson to its sixth consecutive outright conference title with a 34-10 win against Notre Dame in the ACC Championship Game. That day, Clemson and Oklahoma's six-year streaks of outright conference titles made the two programs the first among current Power Five programs to win at least six straight outright titles since Oklahoma (12 from 1948-59) as part of the now-dissolved Big 8 Conference. The conference title helped Clemson secure its record-tying sixth College Football Playoff berth, becoming the first program ever to reach the postseason tournament in six consecutive seasons. Clemson is 6-4 all-time in College Football Playoff games, the second-most wins of any program and twice the number of the third-place programs (three, Georgia and Ohio State). Clemson finished the 2020 season as the nation's No. 3-ranked squad, the Tigers' sixth consecutive top-four finish in the AP poll. In doing so, Swinney joined Bobby Bowden (13), Pete Carroll (7) and Bud Wilkinson (6) as the only coaches since the AP Poll's inception in 1936 to record six consecutive top-four finishes. In that stretch, Clemson appeared in the top five of 57 consecutive AP Polls, the second-longest streak in poll history. Clemson entered the third decade of the 21st century in 2020 after Swinney helped author one of the most prolific 10-year periods in the history of the sport. Clemson posted a 117-22 record under Swinney's leadership in the 2010s, and the program's 117 wins trailed only Penn (124 in the 1890s) and Alabama (124 in the 2010s) to tie for the third-most in a decade in major college football since 1890. Clemson's 117 wins in 2010s represented the first 100-win decade in Clemson history. Before a pandemic-shortened season in 2020, Clemson won at least 12 games in five straight seasons from 2015-19, tied for the longest such streak in the modern era and only two seasons shy of Penn's record seven-season streak from 1892-98. Clemson won 69 games in that five-year span, the most in a five-year stretch in the AP Poll era. In 2019, the Tigers earned their fifth consecutive College Football Playoff berth following their fifth-consecutive ACC title, becoming the first team in college football history to win five straight conference championship games since conference title games were created in 1992.  Clemson posted a 14-1 record that year, earning its fourth appearance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in five years. Prior to the season finale, Clemson extended its school-record winning streak to 29 games, tied with Florida State (2012-14) for the longest streak in ACC history and for the 12th-longest in FBS history. Clemson dominated the vast majority of its 2019 opponents, including an eight-game streak of wins by 30 or more points to break the longest streak in the AP Poll era, surpassing the previous mark of seven games set by 2011 Houston and 1976 Michigan. At 150-36, Swinney (.806) enters the 2022 season as the winningest active coach by percentage in the FBS among coaches with at least 10 seasons of head coaching experience. With an initial hire date of Oct. 13, 2008, he is the senior member of the ACC's head coaching fraternity and enters 2022 as the ninth-longest-tenured head coach in the FBS.  Clemson's success on the gridiron has been matched by its prowess in the classroom, as prior to the NCAA suspending APR reporting during the COVID-19 pandemic, Clemson was one of only three programs to earn top-10 percent APR recognition from the NCAA in at least nine of the previous 10 years, joining Duke and Northwestern. Clemson was in the top 10 of APR scores and the final top 25 of the AP and USA Today polls from 2011-15, the only FBS program that could make that claim. In 2017, Clemson became the first school to reach the College Football Playoff and finish in the top five of APR scores in the same year.  Clemson also produced the 2018 William V. Campbell Trophy winner (known colloquially as the “Academic Heisman”) in Christian Wilkins and won the program's first AFCA Academic Achievement Award. Clemson repeated as AFCA Academic Achievement Award recipients in 2019, becoming the only school in the country to repeat and doing so while appearing in the national championship game in both seasons. Swinney and Clemson's 2018 season was one for which statistics and superlatives accumulated in historic fashion. The Tigers became the first major college football team in the modern era (and the first since Penn in 1897) to finish a season with a 15-0 record.  The list of “firsts” was long and distinguished. Clemson became the first program to win four consecutive Atlantic Division titles, and with a 42-10 win against Pittsburgh in the ACC Championship Game, it became the first program to win four straight ACC titles outright.  Clemson's 15 wins included a school-record 12 against teams who finished with winning records. Clemson won by an average margin of 31.1 points per game, the best in the nation and the second-largest in school history, trailing only a 35.3-point average margin in 1900. Among the seasons it passed was a 30.4-point average margin in 1901, a season in which Clemson won one of its five games by a score of 122-0. Clemson set school records in points (664) and total offense (7,718, also an ACC record). The defense held opponents to 13.1 points per game, leading the country in scoring defense for the first time in school history.  A critical point in the season came four games into the campaign. Following a 49-21 win at Georgia Tech in which true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for four touchdowns in reserve, Swinney and the coaching staff elected to name Lawrence the starter, supplanting senior Kelly Bryant, who had led the Tigers to a 16-2 career record as a starter.  With Lawrence leading Swinney's Tigers, Clemson took flight. After a dramatic come-from-behind 27-23 win against Syracuse in which Lawrence exited the game with an injury, Clemson rattled off 10 consecutive wins of 20 points or more to conclude the season, including blowout wins of No. 3 Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl and No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship. Seven players earned first or second-team All-America honors, including a school-record three players who collected consensus honors. The 2018 Tigers produced a team-record 18 All-ACC picks and became the first team to produce the ACC Player of the Year, ACC Offensive Player of the Year, ACC Defensive Player of the Year, ACC Offensive Rookie of the Year and ACC Coach of the Year in a season since Florida State in 1997. Accolades also accumulated for Swinney, who earned his second career ACC Coach-of-the-Year honor and brought home the Woody Hayes Award as national coach of the year. Less than a week after winning the national title, he also won the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award, becoming the first three-time winner of the award. Including the 2018 Bryant and Hayes Awards, he has won national coach-of-the-year honors from at least one organization in five of the last nine years. The 2018 season was preceded by a 2017 campaign in which Clemson was on a mission to prove that it was built to last. Swinney guided the team to a 12-2 record, an ACC title and a College Football Playoff berth despite having only six scholarship seniors and losing players who accounted for 77 percent of the offense during the 2016 national championship season. While Clemson was ranked No. 5 in the preseason AP Poll, few expected the Tigers to be ranked No. 1 in both polls and the College Football Playoff ranking entering the bowl season. In fact, Clemson was not even the preseason choice to win the ACC Atlantic Division.  Despite a setback in the Sugar Bowl to the eventual national champion, Alabama, Clemson finished ranked No. 4 in both polls. He was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame following the season. Clemson's school-record six wins over top-25 teams in 2017, also a national best, included a school-record four on opponents' home fields and five away from home. The defense, including three defensive linemen, featured four players who were named All-American, helping Clemson rank in the top four in the nation in scoring defense (No. 2) and total defense (No. 4). Clemson led the ACC in the four major defensive categories (scoring, total, rushing, passing), a first in history. The 2016 Tigers lived up to their hype after compiling a 14-1 record and earning a spot in the College Football Playoff for the second-straight year. Along the way, Clemson knocked off five top-25 foes. Clemson defeated the top two teams in the national polls in consecutive games in the College Football Playoff at the end of the season. The Tigers blanked Ohio State, 31-0, in the Fiesta Bowl, the first shutout suffered by head coach Urban Meyer in his career and the first for Ohio State since 1993. The Tigers then earned a rematch with No. 1 Alabama, and for the first time in school history, took down the top-ranked team in a second epic battle with the storied Crimson Tide program. Quarterback Deshaun Watson's touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow with one second left on the clock gave Clemson a dramatic 35-31 victory in Tampa, Fla. Swinney received the Bear Bryant Award as national coach-of-the-year for the second consecutive season. Swinney coached Watson to two record-setting seasons in 2015 and 2016. The two-time Heisman Trophy finalist became the first player in FBS history to total 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season in 2015, and he followed by setting an ACC record with 41 passing touchdowns in 2016. Watson won both  the Davey O'Brien Award and Manning Award in back-to-back seasons. Swinney guided Clemson to the No. 1 national ranking in every College Football Playoff poll in 2015 and led the Tigers to their first national championship game appearance under the new format after his team defeated Oklahoma, 37-17, in the 2015 Orange Bowl. The Tigers led Alabama in the fourth quarter of the championship contest, but came up just short (45-40) in an epic game in Glendale, Ariz. Following the team's 14-1 record and No. 2 final ranking, he was the recipient of 10 national and two ACC Coach-of-the-Year honors.  In 2015, a then-Tiger-record 17 players were named to one of three All-ACC teams, including all five starting offensive linemen for the first time in school history. In 2016, 15 players were honored, including a school-record three first-team All-ACC offensive line selections. The 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons were also noteworthy, with three top-15 final rankings.  With a 40-6 Russell Athletic Bowl victory over Oklahoma in 2014, Swinney became the first coach in history to win three bowl games in consecutive seasons over teams whose head coaches had previously won the national title. He upped that mark to five years in a row in 2016. Clemson capped off the 2013 season with a thrilling 40-35 victory over No. 6 Ohio State in the Orange Bowl. Clemson had an 11-2 record after finishing 7-1 in ACC regular-season games. It marked Clemson's first back-to-back 11-win seasons in school history. For the fourth time in his first five full seasons as head coach, Swinney was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year in 2013. The 2012 season (11-2) was a groundbreaking year for Swinney's Tigers when looking at the overall consistency of the program. The seven conference wins in the regular season were then a school record, while Clemson was co-champion of the ACC Atlantic Division. With Clemson's thrilling 25-24 win over No. 7 LSU in the 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl, the Tigers finished the season ranked No. 9 in the USA Today poll. It was Clemson's first top-10 finish in one of the two major polls since 1990. Clemson also reached the 11-win mark for the first time since its 1981 national championship season.  Swinney's 2011 squad, which ended the season ranked No. 22 in the nation, captured Clemson's first ACC title since 1991 when it beat No. 3 Virginia Tech, 38-10, in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte, N.C. It gave Clemson its first 10-win season since 1990. For his efforts, Swinney was named Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year in 2011 to become the first Tiger head coach to win a national coach-of-the-year award since Ford in 1981. In 2010, Swinney became just the second Tiger coach to lead Clemson to a bowl game in his first two full years as head coach, joining his predecessor, Tommy Bowden. The 2010 schedule was one of the most challenging in school history, as nine bowl teams were on the regular-season slate and two of the four non-conference opponents were ranked in the top 25. In 2009, Swinney's first full season as head coach at Clemson, he led the Tigers to their first title of the ACC Atlantic Division. The Tigers came just six points short of winning their first ACC title in 18 years. Swinney was named ACC Coach of the Year by Sporting News and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year. In October 2008, Swinney was named Clemson's interim head coach, replacing Bowden, who had been his position coach as a player at Alabama and was Clemson's head coach since 1999. He led the Tigers to a 4-2 record during the rest of the 2008 regular season, including a win over South Carolina in the regular-season finale to earn a Gator Bowl bid against Nebraska. On Dec. 1, 2008, his interim tag was removed and he was named the program's head coach. At the time, there had been 28 interim head coaches at the FBS level since 1970, and those coaches had combined for a 26-86-2 record. Only one of those 28 interim coaches posted a winning record, and that was Swinney. When he was hired as head coach, he became just the second interim coach to be elevated to the head coach position at the same school during that time period. Swinney hit the ground running in his first week as interim head coach, as he prepared for a 5-1 Georgia Tech team. He had to reorganize his staff and regroup his team and the fanbase in just five days. While the Tigers lost by four points, he accomplished many goals in that first week through his outstanding leadership. One of the most impressive demonstrations of unity came during the team's “Tiger Walk,” which has since become a staple of Clemson's game day routine for both the team and fans. Swinney has demonstrated his dedication to the community through Dabo's All In Team Foundation. Since 2009, the Swinney family and Dabo's All In Team Foundation have given more than $7.8 million back to communities and programs in the state. In its inaugural year, the foundation made the first contribution to the cancer fund established for former Boston College linebacker Mark Herzlich, and many schools followed its lead during the remainder of the season. In 2021, the foundation distributed roughly $1.2 million in financial support to their core focus areas, with $800,000 of that being distributed to more than 200 deserving organizations and non-profits through the foundation's grant program. In 2019, the foundation awarded a record $1,082,000 in grant funding to more than 165 and raised $400,000 for breast cancer research and prevention during the organization's annual Ladies Clinic. The foundation's efforts went virtual in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, as the organization's ALL IN Virtual Fundraising Event alone raised nearly $1 million for organizations and efforts in South Carolina. Swinney was named as the honorary coach for the 2019 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, an honor for which Watson, a former Good Works Team selection, returned to Clemson to surprise Swinney during a team meeting. In the spring of 2021, Swinney accepted the Uncommon Award from Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach Tony Dungy, who presents the honor annually to figures in football who “take the tough road, follow a higher calling and set a higher standard.” The 1993 Alabama graduate joined the Clemson staff prior to the 2003 season. In his first 19 years as an assistant or head coach, the Tigers finished in the top 25 of the polls 15 times and totaled 42 wins over top-25 teams. Swinney coached his wide receiver position to a level of consistency that had not been seen previously at Clemson. He had a wide receiver finish first or second in the ACC in catches in five of his six seasons as an assistant coach. In his first season, he had three of the top-10 receivers in the conference, a first in Tiger history. In his 19 seasons at Clemson, a Tiger wide receiver has earned All-ACC status in 17 of those campaigns, including a first- or second-team All-ACC selection (Derrick Hamilton, Airese Currie, Chansi Stuckey, Aaron Kelly, Jacoby Ford, Sammy Watkins, DeAndre Hopkins, Artavis Scott, Mike Williams, Tee Higgins, Amari Rodgers) in 16 of those 19 seasons. In 2021, three of his protégés (Williams, Higgins and Hunter Renfrow) recorded 1,000-yard seasons in the NFL, while another (Chansi Stuckey) served as wide receivers coach at Big 12 champion Baylor before accepting the wide receivers coach job at Notre Dame for 2022. The Alabama native has a reputation as one of the top recruiters in the nation. In 2006, he was listed as the No. 5 recruiter in the nation by Rivals. He signed 38 players in his five recruiting seasons as an assistant coach and was a major reason Clemson's 2008 recruiting class was rated No. 2 in the nation by ESPN when he signed 11 players. Clemson's 2020 class finished as a consensus Top 3 class, earning the top ranking from ESPN, a No. 2 rank by Rivals and a No. 3 ranking in the 247 Composite.  When Swinney accepted the interim head coaching position at Clemson on Oct. 13, 2008, he described his feelings as “bittersweet,” because he was taking over for Bowden, who had been his first position coach at Alabama in the 1989 season. He had also brought Swinney back to the coaching profession in 2003 and has had a profound effect on his life. Both had followed similar paths as players, as Bowden was a walk-on at West Virginia and Swinney was a walk-on at Alabama. Swinney received a commerce & business administration degree from Alabama in 1993 after lettering three times (1990-92). A walk-on who went on to earn a scholarship, Swinney was a wide receiver on Alabama's 1992 national championship team. He was also named Academic All-SEC along with being an SEC Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll member in 1990 and 1992. Along with his appearance in the 1993 Sugar Bowl, his Alabama teams played in the 1990 Sugar Bowl, 1991 Fiesta Bowl and 1991 Blockbuster Bowl. Both Sugar Bowl appearances came after winning the SEC title game. After his playing career, he was a graduate assistant at Alabama from 1993-95. He received a master's degree in business administration from Alabama in 1995. He became a full-time assistant coach at Alabama in February 1996 under head coach Gene Stallings and coached a total of five seasons there on a full-time basis. Swinney was assigned to coach the Crimson Tide's wide receivers and tight ends in 1996, a season that saw Alabama win the SEC West Division title. The following year, he solely coached the tight ends. In 1998, he coached Alabama's wide receivers, a position he held for three years. At the end of 1999, Swinney coached the Crimson Tide in the 2000 Orange Bowl after winning the SEC Championship Game. During his time at Alabama, Swinney was a part of six teams with double-digit wins, five top-10 finishes, one national title (1992), three SEC championships (1989,92,99) and five SEC West Division titles (1992,93,94,96,99) as a player and coach. Swinney married the former Kathleen Bassett in 1994. They have three sons, Will, Drew and Clay. Will  played for Clemson from 2017-21, appearing in 69 games and holding for 558 career kicking points while also scoring two touchdowns of his own. Drew and Clay are both members of the 2022 Tiger football team.

An outstanding recruiter with unrivaled knowledge of the game and passion for teaching, the 2021-22 season marks the 25th illustrious year for Paige Yaroshuk-Tews with the University of Miami women's tennis team, including her 21st as head coach. The program's all-time winningest coach, Yaroshuk-Tews has turned the Hurricanes into a force nationally, leading Miami to the NCAA's Elite Eight in eight of the last 17 tournaments, the seventh-most quarterfinal appearances in the nation during that span. The Hurricanes have also made the Sweet 16 on 13 occasions during that stretch, one of eight programs to do so. In her 20 years at Miami, Yaroshuk-Tews boasts an overall record of 377-132 (.741) and an ACC career record of 155-44 (.779). As a result of her unparalleled achievements, Yaroshuk-Tews was inducted into the UM Sports Hall of Fame in 2012. Yaroshuk-Tews' desire to make Miami a national title contender on a yearly basis has helped the program consistently flourish with all-conference and All-American talent. The Hurricanes have not only made the NCAA Team Championship in each of her years as head coach–excluding 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic canceled the postseason–but have also won at least one NCAA match every season. UM qualified for the ITA National Team Indoor Championships 12 straight years, from 2005-16, and was ranked in the top 10 at some point during the season in each of those campaigns. Yaroshuk-Tews annually brings in some of the top prep talent, reloading year in and year out for a program consistently ranked among the nation's best. Since taking the head coaching position for the women's tennis program at Miami in 2001, Yaroshuk-Tews has led the Hurricanes on an unprecedented run in Coral Gables, Fla. In total, she has directed Miami to 13 Sweet 16 berths, eight Elite Eight trips and an appearance in the 2006 NCAA final, the program's first since 1985. Miami hosted the first and second rounds of the NCAA Team Championship 13 times under Yaroshuk-Tews, including 12 straight years each from 2005-2016. The Hurricanes have turned in 18 straight ITA top-25 finishes, including 13 in the top 15. In eight of the last 15 completed seasons, Miami has ended the year in the top 10. Individually, Yaroshuk-Tews has guided two players to NCAA Singles Championship crowns, as Audra Cohen won the hardware in 2007 and Estela Perez-Somarriba did so in 2019. Miami is one of just three schools with multiple NCAA singles titles in the past 14 tournaments, alongside Stanford and Virginia. Six Hurricanes have combined for nine semifinals berths during that stretch, with both totals the highest marks of any program since 2007. Sixteen different Hurricanes have garnered a total of 35 ITA All-American honors under Yaroshuk-Tews, the former a program record for a coach. In 17 of her 20 seasons, at least one Hurricane has been named an All-American, with multiple players receiving the honor in 10 of them. Under Yaroshuk-Tews' watch, 18 Hurricanes have combined for 38 All-ACC distinctions and 28 Miami players have totaled 50 Academic All-ACC recognitions. In addition, four Hurricanes have totaled six ACC Player of the Year plaudits and four have combined for six ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors. Most recently, the Hurricanes posted a 15-9 (8-5 ACC) mark in 2021, reaching the second round of the NCAA Team Championship and finishing No. 20 nationally. Miami earned two top-10 wins, knocking off eighth-ranked Virginia at home and sixth-ranked Florida State in the ACC Championship to reach the semifinals for the fifth consecutive time. Estela Perez-Somarriba posted a 24-3 singles mark on her way to reaching the NCAA Singles Championship title match for the second straight time and claiming ITA National Player of the Year honors as the nation's top-ranked player. She finished her illustrious career at 165-26, good for the second-most wins in ACC history, and also claimed ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, ITA Senior Player of the Year and ITA Southeast Region Cissie Leary Sportsmanship Award. She and Isabella Pfennig, who ended the year ranked No. 26 nationally, both garnered ITA All-America and All-ACC status, with the latter winning ITA Southeast Region Rookie of the Year. Two Hurricane duos competed in the NCAA Doubles Championship, each finishing top-30 nationally. Miami notched a 6-4 (3-2 ACC) record during the 2020 campaign. The team did not play past February, as the season ended prematurely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All four of the Hurricanes' setbacks were against top-20 teams, including two in the top five, and the team also notched a top-20 road win. Estela Perez-Somarriba broke the program's career singles wins record, becoming Yaroshuk-Tews' fourth pupil to top the charts. The Madrid native, who won ITA Southeast Region Senior Player of the Year and ITA Southeast Region Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship & Leadership Award plaudits, also peaked at first nationally and held the second position when play ended. No ACC postseason accolades were awarded due to the pandemic, but Perez-Somarriba did win her fourth ITA All-America distinction. The Hurricanes logged a 19-8 ledger in 2019, finishing 9-5 in ACC action and falling one point shy of the NCAA Sweet 16. Miami posted five top-25 wins, including defeating ninth-ranked NC State, 4-2, to reach the ACC Championship semifinals for the sixth time in seven years and fourth in a row. Yaroshuk-Tews guided her team to the No. 20 spot in the final ITA rankings, the 15th top-20 finish in a 16-year period. Estela Perez-Somarriba won the NCAA Singles Championship title and went 43-5, claiming ACC Player of the Year, ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, ITA All-America and ITA Southeast Region Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship & Leadership Award honors, while ending the season ranked second nationally. Freshman Daevenia Achong earned Second Team All-ACC accolades, as well as joined Perez-Somarriba and three other Hurricanes on the All-ACC Academic Team. Miami posted an 18-8 mark in 2018, including an 11-3 record in ACC play. After a one-year hiatus, the Hurricanes again hosted the opening two rounds of the NCAA Team Championship and advanced to the Sweet 16. Yaroshuk-Tews' team ended the season ranked No. 17 nationally, good for a 14th top-20 finish in a 15-year span. Estela Perez-Somarriba was named the ACC Player of the Year and the ITA National Player to Watch, finishing with ITA All-America accolades, First Team All-ACC distinction, a 39-8 record and the fifth spot in the final ITA rankings. Sinead Lohan, who finished her career with the fourth-most singles wins in school history (130), became Miami's third four-time All-ACC honoree and won the ITA Southeast Region Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship & Leadership Award. Despite dealing with significant injuries throughout the 2017 campaign, Yaroshuk-Tews oversaw the team's 22nd consecutive NCAA Team Championship berth and 21st winning season in a row. The Hurricanes finished 13-12, concluded the campaign ranked No. 25 nationally and reached the second round of NCAA play. Miami had two First Team All-ACC honorees for the second straight year, as Sinead Lohan and Estela Perez-Somarriba both garnered the recognition. Perez-Somarriba, an ITA All-American, became the first Hurricane freshman to reach the NCAA Singles Championship Final Four, giving Miami a semifinalist for the third season in a row. Yaroshuk-Tews, en route to ITA Southeast Region Coach of the Year distinction, guided Miami to a 21-6 record in 2016, the team's 11th 20-win season in a 13-year span. The Hurricanes went 12-2 in the ACC for the third year in a row, finishing in second place, and reached the ACC Championship final for the sixth time in 12 seasons in the ACC. Miami advanced to the Sweet 16 for the 11th year in a row and ended the campaign ranked No. 10 in the nation, its 13th straight top-15 finish and eighth top-10 finish in the last 11 years. Sinead Lohan, Stephanie Wagner and Wendy Zhang combined for a total of four ITA All-American distinctions. Wagner, the ITA Southeast Region Senior Player of the Year, broke the program's career wins record, finishing with 134. The All-American trio combined for six ACC Player of the Week honors, with Wagner winning four, the most by anyone since 2012, to conclude her career with eight. Lohan went 40-6 in singles, tied for the third-most wins in a season by a Miami player, and became the seventh different Hurricane to reach the NCAA Singles Championship Final Four, including the sixth under Yaroshuk-Tews. The Hurricanes went 18-7 in 2015 and finished second in the ACC at 12-2. Miami reached the Sweet 16 for the 10th year in a row and earned a 12th consecutive top-15 finish. The team also finished in the top four of the ACC for the 11th straight year, each one since it joined the conference. On an individual level, Yaroshuk-Tews guided both Sinead Lohan and Stephanie Wagner to ITA All-American honors. Both of them reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Singles Championship, marking the third time ever–all under the direction of Yarosuk-Tews–two Hurricanes did so the same year. Wagner was also named the ITA National Player to Watch. UM set a program record with five nationally-ranked singles players in the year-end rankings and tied the top mark set the previous season with six different players ranked in either singles or doubles. In 2014, Miami posted its sixth consecutive 20-win season and 10th in the last 11 years, finishing at 21-6, with a 12-2 mark in the ACC to tie for first place. The Hurricanes hosted the NCAA Team Championship first and second rounds for the 10th consecutive year and reached the NCAA round of 16 for the ninth straight time. Additionally, UM made the ITA National Team Indoor Championships for the 10th season in a row. Miami ended the year at No. 12 in the nation and two Hurricanes, Monique Albuquerque and Clementina Riobueno, earned ITA All-American recognition. Six different Hurricanes ended the season ranked in either singles or doubles, a new program record. The 2013 season saw Miami win its first ACC Championship title, as the Hurricanes knocked off a trio of top-30 teams in Cary, N.C., including second-ranked North Carolina in the semifinals. Miami went on to finish 23-6, marking the most wins for the program since 2009 and the third-most during Yaroshuk-Tews' tenure. The season also marked the fifth consecutive trip to the Elite Eight for the Hurricanes, then the longest streak in the country. UM concluded the year ranked eighth, its fifth straight top-10 finish, and Yaroshuk-Tews was named the ITA Southeast Region Coach of the Year, while her assistant coach, Alex Santos, was chosen as the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year. During the 2012 season, the Hurricanes advanced to their fourth consecutive NCAA Team Championship Elite Eight, before falling to eventual national champion Florida. Miami played host to North Florida and Utah in the first two rounds of the tournament, winning both matches, 4-0. In the Sweet 16, the Hurricanes exacted revenge on ACC foe North Carolina, winning 4-2 to erase the memory of a 4-3 loss to the Tar Heels in the regular season. Miami wound up ninth in the final national rankings, and Anna Bartenstein was named an ITA All-American, making it nine straight seasons Yaroshuk-Tews coached a player who received the honor. In 2011, Yaroshuk-Tews led Miami on another deep run in the NCAA Team Championship, winning at home in the first two rounds before taking down Michigan in the round of 16 in Stanford, Calif. The Hurricanes finished the season ranked seventh nationally. Also in 2011, senior Bianca Eichkorn became the program's all-time winningest singles player (133 victories) en route to numerous All-America and all-conference honors. Among them, Eichkorn became the fourth UM player in the last seven seasons to be named ACC Player of the Year under Yaroshuk-Tews, who surpassed 200 career wins with Miami's NCAA-opening 4-0 victory May 13 against FIU. Anna Bartenstein was also named an ITA All-American in 2011, making it four straight years the Hurricanes had at least two players garner the accolade. In 2010, Yaroshuk-Tews led the Hurricanes to the NCAA quarterfinals, a No. 10 final ranking and a 20-6 record, UM's sixth 20-win season in the last seven years. Miami also posted a 10-1 mark in ACC play to finish in second place. For the second straight year–the first time that happened since 1985-86–three Hurricanes earned ITA All-America honors, this time Bianca Eichkorn, Gabriela Mejia and Laura Vallverdu, who also won the Honda Sports Award. Vallverdu was an All-American in singles and doubles, giving Miami four All-America honors for the first time since 1988. Additionally, Vallverdu set the program record for singles wins (131) and became the fourth four-year All-American in program history and the first under Yaroshuk-Tews. Eichkorn and Vallverdu both reached the NCAA Singles Championship quarterfinals, the second straight year two Hurricanes did so after it had not previously happened in program history. Vallverdu made the semifinals, to become the program's first two-time semifinalist. During the 2009 season, Yaroshuk-Tews claimed the ACC Coach of the Year award after leading UM to a 26-5 mark, its second-best record ever during the NCAA era (1982-present). The Hurricanes went 16-0 at home, captured the ACC regular season title at 10-1 and registered 12 consecutive victories leading into the ACC Championship final. Yaroshuk-Tews saw her team advance to the NCAA quarterfinals and concluded the season seventh in the country, its second best finish of the last 32 years. For the first time since 1988, three UM players were named ITA All-Americans, in Bianca Eichkorn, Julia Cohen and Laura Vallverdu. All three reached the NCAA Singles Championship round of 16, a first in school history. Cohen and Eichkorn became the first Hurricane duo to make the semifinals the same year, and Vallverdu finished as the second finalist in program history. In total, four Hurricanes played in the NCAA Singles Championship, marking the first time that happened, and four Miami duos were listed in the final ITA doubles rankings for the first time ever. In 2008, Miami finished with a 17-6 overall mark, snapping a string of four consecutive 20-win seasons. The Hurricanes faced 18 ranked opponents and went 12-6 against them. UM hosted the first two rounds of the NCAA Team Championship for the fourth straight year and reached a third consecutive Sweet 16. The Hurricanes' 6-1 win over No. 45 NC State April 12 gave Yaroshuk-Tews her 132nd victory to pass legendary Miami coach Ivan Duvenhage (1982-88) for the program record. Miami ended the season at No. 14 in the nation and Laura Vallverdu was named an ITA All-American. During the 2007 season, Yaroshuk-Tews led the Hurricanes to a 22-7 mark, the team's fourth straight 20-win season and to the NCAA quarterfinals for the second straight season. Miami went 17-1 at home, with the lone loss against eventual NCAA champion Georgia Tech. The Hurricanes finished the season ranked ninth in the nation, their second straight top-10 finish. Audra Cohen and Laura Vallverdu were both named ITA All-Americans, making it three straight years UM had multiple honorees for the first time since 1986-88. Cohen went 42-2 in singles, became the first player in program history win the national title in the NCAA Singles Championship and was also the first to win the Honda Sports Award. She also won her second consecutive ITA National Player of the Year Award and ACC Player of the Year award, making it three straight years a Hurricane earned both accolades. It marked just the second time ever a school had three straight ITA National Player of the Year winners on the women's side, and Cohen was fifth women to win the award in back-to-back years. Cohen ended the season at No. 1 in the nation for the second year in a row, marking the third straight time a UM player finished first, and she was selected to the ITA All-Star Team as well. Three Hurricanes made the NCAA Singles Championship for the third time ever, and first since 1985. Yaroshuk-Tews reached 100 wins with a 6-1 win over eighth-ranked Baylor Feb. 3, becoming the third coach in program history to get to triple digits. Her assistant coach, David Anderton, garnered the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year award for his work with the team. The 2006 campaign was a special one for the Miami program, as the Hurricanes advanced to the final of the NCAA Team Championship for the first time since 1985 and the second time ever. UM upset second-ranked Notre Dame in the quarterfinals and third-ranked USC in the semifinals. The impressive run came to an end in the championship match against two-time defending champion and top-seeded Stanford. The Hurricanes finished the season at 24-7 and shared the ACC regular season title for the second straight year. Yaroshuk-Tews' squad came up with big wins against some of the nation's best teams, going 5-3 against top-10 teams, including a 4-2 mark against opponents ranked in the top three. The Hurricanes finished the season ranked fourth in the country, their first top-five finish since 1987 and the fourth-best record in program history during the NCAA era (1982-present). The same year, Melissa Applebaum and Audra Cohen were both named ITA All-Americans, making it back-to-back years the Hurricanes had a pair of honorees for the first time since the 1987-88 season. Cohen went 34-2 in singles and finished the season ranked No. 1 in the nation, the second straight year a Hurricane took the top spot. She was named the ITA National Player of the Year and ACC Player of the Year, making it back-to-back years a Hurricane won both awards, and she was nominated for the Honda Sports Award. Cohen and Applebaum ended the year ranked second nationally in doubles and made the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship. Both of them were named to the ITA All-Star Team. Additionally, four Hurricanes made the year-end ITA rankings for the first time in 30 years. The team flourished in 2005 under Yaroshuk-Tews, earning a 21-5 overall record, marking its second consecutive 20-win season. Miami went 9-1 in Atlantic Coast Conference play in its inaugural season in the league to tie for first place and also reached the ACC Championship final. The Hurricanes made the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships and upset fourth-ranked UCLA, 4-3. UM earned an automatic bid to host the first two rounds of the NCAA Team Championship and fell to California in the second round to snap a 27-match home winning streak. The Hurricanes finished at No. 13 in the nation and both Audrey Bañada and Megan Bradley were named ITA All-Americans, the first time Miami had multiple players earn the honor since 1992. The pair also reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship, the first Miami duo to do so since 1992. Bradley set a program record for singles wins with 44, finishing at 44-2 and winning 39 straight matches along the way. She won the ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships title, finished the season ranked first in the nation, made the ITA All-Star Team, and won ACC/UM Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year and ITA National Senior Player of the Year. Additionally, Bradley was the first Hurricane to win ITA National Player of the Year and the first to receive the ACC Player of the Year award. Her ITA national awards were the first by a Hurricane since 1991. In 2004, Yaroshuk-Tews led her team to yet another successful season and earned her second BIG EAST Coach of the Year award. The Hurricanes finished with a 20-4 overall record and were ranked 15th in the final poll, the team's highest ranking since 1991. Miami made the BIG EAST Championship final for the 13th straight year–every one it participated in as a conference member–and won its eighth title. Half the titles and seven of the finals appearances came with Yaroshuk-Tews on the coaching staff. The Hurricanes were part of one of the biggest upsets in collegiate tennis history in 2004. They beat previously undefeated and top-ranked ranked Florida, 4-3, in the second round of the NCAA Team Championship in Gainesville, Fla. Miami had not defeated the Gators since the 1986 season. The Hurricanes advanced to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1999 and defeated No. 11 Tulane, 4-1, to reach the Elite Eight for the first time since the 1986. Megan Bradley was named an ITA All-American, the first Hurricane to garner the honor since 1999, which was also the last time Miami won 20-plus matches. After the season, Yaroshuk-Tews was tabbed to coach the prestigious USA Tennis Collegiate Team. During the 2003 season, Yaroshuk-Tews led her team to a 17-7 record and an eighth consecutive trip to the NCAA Team Championship. Her squad advanced to the second round of the tournament and finished the season ranked 23rd in the country, marking the program's first top-25 finish since 1999. The Hurricanes had two players–Melissa Applebaum and Megan Bradley–in the NCAA Singles Championship for the first time since 1992, and placed a pair–Applebaum and Bradley–in the NCAA Doubles Championship for the first time since 1997, both ending the longest droughts in program history. In 2002, her first season as head coach, Yaroshuk-Tews guided the Hurricanes to their seventh BIG EAST Championship title and she was named BIG EAST Coach of the Year. The team finished with a 14-7 record and reached the second round of the NCAA Team Championship for the first time in three years. Half of Miami's wins came against ranked opponents that season and the Hurricanes had a player, Mari Toro, finish the season nationally ranked for the first time since 1999. Yaroshuk-Tews spent the 1998 and 1999 seasons as the assistant coach at Miami before being promoted to associate head coach for the 2000 and 2001 seasons. During that stretch, the Hurricanes won the BIG EAST Championship in both 1998 and 2000. In Yaroshuk-Tews' opening year on staff, UM had its first All-American–Lioudmila Skavronskaia–in three years, quickly ending the program's first two-year drought without one since its first two years of existence (1973-74). Prior to joining the Miami staff, Yaroshuk-Tews worked at the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Player Development Headquarters in Key Biscayne, Fla., as a traveling coach with the top U.S. junior players. Before her USTA appointment, Yaroshuk-Tews played professionally in satellite and challenger events. A Miami native and Killian High School graduate, Yaroshuk-Tews stood out among Florida juniors. In the Girl's 18 Division, she held the No. 1 ranking in Florida and the No. 8 spot nationally. Yaroshuk-Tews went on to star at UCLA, where she was a four-year letter winner and two-time ITA All-American. The Bruins made the NCAA Team Championship and finished in the top 15 all four of her seasons on the team, including a trio of top-10 finishes. She made an immediate impact as a freshman in 1993, playing No. 5 singles and No. 2 doubles for UCLA, who finished No. 13 in the nation. Her junior year, in 1995, Yaroshuk-Tews played No. 3 singles and No. 3 doubles for the Bruins, who concluded the year sixth in the country after reaching the Elite Eight. Individually, Yaroshuk-Tews made the NCAA Singles Championship and finished ranked No. 78 nationally. As a senior in 1996, Yaroshuk-Tews played No. 2 singles and No. 1 doubles for the Bruins, who made the Final Four and ended the season ranked fourth. Yaroshuk-Tews won the PAC-10 Indoor and Outdoor Doubles Championships with partner Keri Phebus and achieved ITA All-America and All-PAC-10 honors in both singles and doubles. The Bruins' top tandem was ranked as high as No. 1 in the nation during the 1996 season and finished No. 3, while Yaroshuk-Tews achieved a singles ranking as high as No. 13 and closed at No. 21. She made the round of 16 of the NCAA Singles Championship and the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship. In addition, Yaroshuk-Tews was honored with UCLA's “Champs Award,” given to the school's most inspirational female athlete, and was named the team's Most Valuable Player. She was also appointed to the Rolex/ITA Collegiate All-Star Team. Yaroshuk-Tews graduated from UCLA in 1996 with a bachelor's degree in sociology, while earning PAC-10 academic honors. She began UM's graduate studies program in elementary education during the spring of 1999. Yaroshuk-Tews is the daughter of Ernie and Carol Yaroshuk. Her father was a member of the University of Miami baseball team from 1961-63, and was inducted into the UM Sports Hall of Fame in 1992. He holds the third-highest batting average (.448) in the program's single-season history. Yaroshuk-Tews and her father form the only father-daughter duo in the UMSHoF. On Jan. 10, 2004, Yaroshuk-Tews was married to Scott Tews. The couple lives in Palmetto Bay, Fla., with their daughter, Emma, and son, Landon.

North Carolina center Armando Bacot officially announced on Wednesday that he would be returning for his senior season. This is enormous news for head coach Hubert Davis who will now have one more year with his record-setting big man and the most indispensable player on his roster. It will also allow the freshmen big men an opportunity to develop under an ACC Player of the Year candidate. NIL considerations certainly played a huge role in this decision. On the less positive side of things, Dawson Garcia and Anthony Harris have each decided to enter the transfer portal. Garcia's news broke on Wednesday morning while Harris's decision came out Wednesday afternoon. No word yet on where they will each transfer. With Garcia, given his family's health struggles, one would expect him to land somewhere close to home. Best of luck to both young men as they explore new opportunities. Host Isaac Schade unpacks the ramifications of all three decisions, chief of which is the impact on the 2022-23 roster and how scholarship math will be broken down. Carolina currently sits at 12 scholarships used of their potential 13. That number does not include Leaky Black, the Heels would be at the right number of 13. We are still awaiting decisions from Black, Caleb Love, RJ Davis, and to see if any other players decide to transfer.

Kiper said Pickett could become a "Derek Carr-type" quarterback at the next level, with ESPN colleague Todd McShay labeling the ACC Player of the Year the "safest bet" at the position. Pickett had a prolific final year at Pitt, throwing for 4,319 yards and 42 touchdowns. But he'll turn 24 in June and may not have the physical upside of Matt Corral, Malik Willis or Desmond Ridder. The 6'3" signal-caller ran for 801 yards over five college seasons compared to 1,338 for Corral, 2,180 for Ridder and 1,822 for Willis in two seasons at Liberty. Listing Carr as the ceiling for an incoming rookie may not be exactly what a fanbase wants to hear, but Carr is a three-time Pro Bowler who's averaging 249.6 yards per game through the air. That would be a massive upgrade over what the Commanders have had.
