Cutcliffe, 64, has been at Duke since the 2008 season; he’s the longest-tenured football coach in the ACC. However, over the last half-dozen years, the program has truly rounded into form. Dating back to the 2012 season, Duke has gone to six bowl games in seven years, including back-to-back postseason wins. In four of those seven seasons, Duke spent some time ranked in the AP Top 25.
The high-water mark of Cutcliffe’s tenure was the charmed 2013 season, when Duke won 10 games (the most in program history) and the ACC Coastal Division title. The Blue Devils finished the season ranked 23rd in the AP Poll.
