ccbird Posted March 20, 2010 Share Posted March 20, 2010 Gary has always had one of the worst grad rates in the ACC, maybe even the country. There were people complaining a decade ago how poor Gary's grad rates were. I certainly agree that the system is flawed and biased, but it's not irrelevant. A very high % of the DI coaches in power conferences are in the same position as Gary and have graduated their kids at a better rate. Schools take grad rates of their student athletes seriously. Now, I would be lying if I said I've ever concerned myself with how many people Gary graduates but that doesn't mean it should have been as bad as it was for as long as it was. Read into this as much as you will, but Gary in one of his more recent contract extensions had a nice incentive clause tied to his graduation rate and unsurprisingly his rate has improved in recent years. I absolutely believe that when coach emphasizes academics to his players that his grad rate will be better and I think Gary has done that in recent years.
