NC State Wolfpack

The Wolfpack are the only ACC program changing out head coaches this offseason. As with most programs firing a coach, some degree of disarray and rebuilding is to be expected. But how bare is the cupboard for new head coach Kevin Keatts?

Miami Hurricanes

The Miami Hurricanes will enter this season with the biggest set of expectations they've ever faced. Jim Larranaga has assembled arguably the most talented roster Miami has ever had, with three five-star underclassmen likely to crack the starting lineup, and losing only two players to graduation. How will the Hurricanes adjust to being the ones with the target on their backs?

Coach: Jim Larranaga; 609-403 in 23 seasons overall; 139-69 (64-42) in 6 seasons at Miami

2016-17 Record: 21-12 (10-8); ACCT Quarterfinals (8th seed); NCAAT 1st Round (8 seed)

Louisville Cardinals

Lousivlle has lived consistently in the Top 25 since joining the ACC, but at the same time the last couple seasons have proven a letdown in a lot of ways. Two years ago the recruiting scandal (keeping it PG here) led the administration to preemptively cancel the postseason. Last year the team had an excellent regular season but promptly fell flat in the postseason, failing to win a game in the ACCT and getting knocked out of the NCAAT in a 7-2 upset by Michigan. This year Louisville will have to weather a Pitino suspension (again, that *ahem* recruiting scandal) to make the most of its very talented roster.

Coach: Rick Pitino; 770-269 in 32 overall seasons (college); 416-141 in 16 seasons at Louisville...
