The ACC has a plethora of head coaches and assistants who could make the College Football Playoff, but one coach in particular stands out.
Clemson defensive coordinator Vic Beasley is considered the best defensive coordinator in the country.
Beasley has the best overall defensive efficiency among all the coaches who have been to the Final Four and is considered to be one of the top coaches in the history of the sport.
Beamys success at Clemson, which went 15-2 last season, was largely due to the quality of his defense.
Clemson allowed a league-low 21.8 points per game and scored 29 points per contest on the road against top-five teams.
Beams success at the helm of the Tigers defensive unit, which allowed just 31.5 points per night, was also a major factor in his success.
The Tigers have had an outstanding defense for a decade and the defense Beams led in 2017 is second only to the one that led the 2016 national championship team.
Beas ability to adapt to a rapidly changing offense and adapt to new schemes will be a key for Clemson going forward.
