Video: Jamie Dixon Talks ACC

Jamie Dixon says the move to the ACC will not change how he recruits, or the type of student-athlete he recruits. He did say that if he's not going to be coaching in the Big East, then the ACC is where he would want to be.

One interesting note. When asked if it will be tough to establish new rivalries as a member of the ACC, Jamie Dixon feels that a lot of the schools that consider Pitt rivals--such as Marquette, Cincinnati and Louisville--quickly became rivalries when those schools joined the conference in 2005. In other words, he and his players are used to the pressure that other schools have built up in calling them rivalry games.

He feels it might not take much to gain some new ACC rivals.
