December 02, 2009|By Sports Digest

Two seasons in the Atlantic Coast Conference, two Coach of the Year awards for Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson. The former Navy coach again was the overwhelming choice as the ACC's top coach, as selected by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. Johnson received 24 of a possible 40 votes cast by ACSMA members, easily outdistancing his counterpart in this week's ACC championship game. Clemson's Dabo Swinney had 10 votes, followed by Duke's David Cutcliffe (4) and Boston College's Frank Spaziani (2). Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams was named ACC Rookie of the Year, and Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly was selected Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Division III: Johns Hopkins (10-2), which will play at Wesley in the NCAA quarterfinals Saturday, jumped from 10th to fourth in this week's ECAC Lambert Meadowlands Division III Poll. This is the highest Johns Hopkins has ever been in the poll, which ranks teams in the East.
