    4 Championship Coaches in one Conference?

    Has there ever been a conference that had four national championship coaches active at the same time?

    Or is it just this season of the ACC?

    Pitino, Boeheim, Williams and Coach were all coaching at the same time I believe.

    For several years the ACC had Roy and Gary, K, and Pitino

    Never mind. Pitino was in Big East while Gary was coaching

    Yeah we've basically just replaced Pitino with Bennett. Although you could say this is the first time we've had four coaches with National Championships at their current school (since Pitino won his title at UK and his title at Stripper U was vacated). Of course, Boeheim's title came while Syracuse was not part of the ACC.

    No, that was never the case.

    Gary Williams retired following the 2010-2011 season. Louisville did not join the conference until 2014.

    In fact, you'd be closer if you said "the ACC had Roy, Gary, K, and Boeheim", as Syracuse joined the conference a year earlier in 2013, but you would still be wrong.

    They hadn't all earned their titles yet, but if my research is correct, in 1986-1987, the Big East had John Thompson at Georgetown and Rollie at Nova who had already won titles, plus Boeheim at Syracuse, Calhoun at UConn and Pitino at Providence who would all go on to win titles in the future. So five of nine schools were coached by coaches who at some point would win a title as a head coach.

    One of the above is not like the others.

    [redacted] them and the horses they rode in on.

    So, it has happened twice and both times it was the ACC.

    No other conference can touch ours.

    We're lucky.

    I said as much by indicating that wright was an "eventual" champ, though not at the time when all were coaching together. Sorry for the confusion.
