ND’s Muffet McGraw named 2014 ACC Coach of the Year


Notre Dame Woman's Basketball Coach Muffet McGraw has been named the 2014 ACC Coach of the Year. The conference made the announcement, which is made by the ACC's Blue Ribbon Panel, on Thursday.

During the 2014 regular season, the first for the Irish in the Atlantic Coast Conference, McGraw's squad is undefeated. They're on a 29-game winning streak, the second longest in school history.

Coach McGraw is no stranger to Coach of the Year honors. In 2013, she was named both Big East Coach of the Year and National Coach of the Year. She's led the Irish to three consecutive NCAA Woman's Final Four appearances, including National Championship Game appearances in 2011 and 2012.

The ACC also announced Maryland senior Alyssa Thomas as the Women's Basketball Player of the Year for a record-tying third time. North Carolina's Diamond DeShields was named Rookie of the Year.

FOX28 Sports Director Dean Huppert will have more from Coach McGraw on FOX28 News at 10.
