After Current TV Contract Expires In 2011
SCHEDULE EXPANSION: In Charlotte, Ken Tysiac reports ACC football coaches yesterday left the conference meetings in Florida "with instructions to talk about a nine-game conference schedule with their" ADs (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 5/13). In Jacksonville, Bob Thomas reports ACC men's and women's basketball and football coaches "found little reason to alter the current arrangements, which coincide with" the current TV contracts. ACC Associate Commissioner Mike Finn said that there was "little, if any, support for expanding the conference football schedule from eight to nine games by the league's 12 coaches" (FLORIDA TIMES-UNION, 5/13).
