ACC Press Release
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Clemson University President James F. Barker, chair of the ACC Council of Presidents, announced that the Atlantic Coast Conference has extended formal invitations for membership to the University of Miami and Virginia Tech. The invitation to Virginia Tech is subject to final completion of the conference by-law requirements, which is currently under way. Miami completed its by-law requirements earlier.
"Our member institutions reached agreement to officially offer membership in the Atlantic Coast Conference to the University of Miami and Virginia Tech," said Barker. "These two institutions represent and share the values for which the ACC has long been known. We feel they will be a great addition to our family.
"Through the ACC's first 50 years, the conference has earned a reputation for excellence in both academics and athletics. As we look to the future, we are confident that our schools, coaches and student-athletes will maintain that heritage."
The ACC Media Relations Office will issue a media advisory at the appropriate time in regards to any press conference addressing conference expansion.
