Fayetteville native headlines new wave of ACC ADs

Martin Jarmond is a proud North Carolinian. Born in Goldsboro, raised in Fayetteville and schooled in Wilmington.

Now, just 38, he's the youngest athletic director at any "Power 5" conference school.

Turning Boston College football and hoops around will be no easy feat in the hyper-competitive ACC, but Jarmond isn't daunted by the challenge.

He visits his home state whenever he can. And Bojangles and Cook-Out are on his to-do list.
