PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford says he 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 15 members agreed to a grant of rights, a legally binding deal that makes it nearly impossible for a school to switch conferences.
Swofford says there is ``no question'' the agreement is a good for the ACC. He added: ``I think that hopefully that transfers to the greater good and the larger landscape from a national perspective. It would appear to me that it does that.''
Three of the other power conferences - the Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big 12 - already have similar deals.
