ACC’s TV rights deal could curb realignment

– Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner John Swofford hopes the decision by his members to hand over their television rights to the league helps bring stability to all of college athletics after three years of conference realignment chaos.

The ACC announced Monday its members agreed to a grant of rights, a deal that runs through 2027 and makes it nearly impossible for a school to switch conferences.

“I hope it is good for the entire landscape,” Swofford said Tuesday during a break in the BCS commissioners’ meetings at a resort hotel in Pasadena.

Now that the ACC schools are apparently locked in, there’s not a lot of schools easily available for the big conferences to gobble up. And if the ACC is not going to need to replace members any time soon, it should keep the five other FBS conferences fairly safe.
