The conference itself is in a shambles. He has to take reponsibility.
The Big 12 is in shambles. The Big East is in shambles. Swoff saved the conference from the fate that those two suffered and has propelled the ACC into one of the Big 4, instead of Big 6 conferences. Many of the basketball programs in the ACC are looking up, with a great crop of new coaches (though a few still suck, looking at your Wake and GT).
ACC football has NEVER been good. Maybe for a few years after the ACC took FSU they were relevant, but only because of Florida State (meanwhile, the ACC is one of the 3 conferences with a team in the top 5, and further still one of those conferences one exist in 5 years).
