2020 ACC Coach of the Year: Pat Popolizio

Three NC State coaches have earned ACC Coach of the Year honors a total of nine times. Popolizio was recognized for the second time during his NC State tenure after guiding the Wolfpack to its 17th ACC Championship, tying for the most among current league schools. NC State’s unbeaten dual season (15-0) was the first in the 91-year history of the program, and the Wolfpack ended the year ranked No. 3 nationally in the final NWCA Coaches Poll.
