“I am thrilled with today's announcement by the Atlantic Coast Conference. It is one of the great days in the history of our conference as it shows the highest level of commitment – not by words, but by actions. With all the uncertainty regarding conference affiliations the past several years in college athletics, this announcement, coupled with our media rights deal with the world's best sports broadcasting network, secures the ACC's future, and thus Duke's, for years to come. As a long-time coach in this league, I understand how terrific the ACC has been. With continued commitment by current members and the addition of several outstanding institutions, the ACC should be in position to reestablish itself as the nation's top conference in the years to come.” – head men's basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski "This is an important moment in the history of the ACC, which has been Duke's home for nearly 60 years. It signals our united commitment to ensuring the future stability of the conference and will enable us to focus on the development of our student-athletes and the spirited competition for which the ACC has always been known.” - Duke University President Richard H.
