Season By The Numbers (so far): The ACC's New Head Coaches

I thought it would be an interesting exercise to take a look at each of the new coaches in the ACC and their performance thus far. It's pretty clear that Steve Donahue is not only getting the most out of his players, but overachieving as well, with great wins over IU, Texas A&M, Cal, Providence and Maryland. Clemson has had a tough road, but have no bad losses (all to teams in the top 75 in KenPom, and all from BCS conferences). Brownell doesn't have much to work with as well, and has already signed his first 4* recruit. Wake, well we all know the story there.

Enjoy the rest of the stats after the jump...
