The Confidential is proud to note the inclusion of several ACC coaches in the Infinity Coaches’ Charity Challenge being held over on ESPN.com: The Challenge. The coach with the most votes will have $100,000 donated to the charity of choice for that coach. Like any good (pick political party you do not like), vote early and often.
Among the current and former ACC coaches are:
- East Region–Mike Krzyzewski, Duke. Charity: The Emily Krzyzewski Center
- East Region–Jim Boeheim, Syracuse. Charity: The Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation
