Where the ACC turns for Swofford's replacement will determine if it can build off of Swofford's successes. There are two ready-made candidates in a pair of former Swofford lieutenants – Atlantic 10 commissioner Bernadette McGlade and South Florida AD Mike Kelly.
Or the league could decide to tap Syracuse AD John Wildhack for his ESPN connections. Either way, the next commissioner will be lucky, and so will the league, if their tenure is half as successful as Swofford’s.
I don't like Swofford because he showed favoritism to UNC and for that reason his successor should come from outside the conference. I also hate the expanded conferences but I don't blame him for that. His hand was forced by other conferences expanding and the ACC had to go along or disappear. The golden age of college sports may be passing. I would not want to a commissioner or AD in this time
