In other exciting ACC Now news today, Wake Forest officially hired Danny Manning to be their new Men’s Head Basketball Coach. After two seasons at Tulsa, including an NCAA tournament berth this year, Manning now has the ACCDN on Fire TV to help brand his new university and conference as sports technology friendly, something recruits, media and ACC fans love to engage with.

I remember watching Danny win the NCAA Championship in 1988 with Kansas, become an Olympian and a two-time NBA All-Star, so this is not rocket science when I say, good hire Wake Forest.

The ACCDN management team must be exited to partner up with Amazon so their savvy fans, sponsors and alumni digital users can interact with custom ACC sports content and social media hubs.
