Cunningham On ACC Grant Of Rights
Release: 04/22/2013

CHAPEL HILL - University of North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham released the following statement on Monday afternoon in comment on the ACC announcing a grant of media rights:


"These are strong and definitive moves by the ACC and its member schools to further announce our desire to stay together and position ourselves among the top conferences in the country. We look forward to continued talks with the ACC and ESPN on how to best strengthen and position our multi-media package. The ACC has been one of the premier academic and athletic conferences for 60 years and its membership going forward only strengthens and advances our standing among our national peers. Today's announcement should put (conference) realignment on the shelf. It's time to put the focus back on celebrating the successes of our students and teams."
