In his second year at his alma mater, Mark Richt is the ACC’s coach of the year.

Miami (10-1, 7-1 ACC), which faces Clemson (11-1, 7-1) in Saturday’s ACC Championship Game in Charlotte (8 p.m., ABC), had not played for the league championship since UM joined the conference in 2004.

Until last week’s loss at Pittsburgh, the Canes had won 15 games in a row, their longest streak since 2002 and the longest among FBS teams. This year, the Canes won 10 games for the first time since 2003.

Richt had 41 of 59 votes, from a combination of 14 ACC head coaches and 45 media representatives. Clemson’s Dabo Swinney was second, with 10 votes.
