Dick Herbert was a sports writer and editor who chronicled the rise of the Atlantic Coast Conference. He was the sports editor of The News & Observer of Raleigh for 29 years until 1971. Herbert was known for his attention to detail and an irascible style. While a journalist, Herbert witnessed the breakup of the Southern Conference, formation of the ACC, the Dixie Basketball Classic scandals and the desegregation of southern college sports. He previously served as secretary of both the American Football Coaches Association and the Atlantic Coast Sports Writers Association before being inducted into the Duke University and North Carolina Halls of Fame. Herbert was also a past president of the U.S. Football Writers Association.

The American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) is an association of over 11,000 American football coaches and staff on all levels. According to its constitution, some of the main goals of the American Football Coaches Association are to "maintain the highest possible standards in football and the profession of coaching football," and to "provide a forum for the discussion and study of all matters pertaining to football and coaching." The AFCA, along with USA Today, is responsible for the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision Coaches Poll. The AFCA is also responsible for the Top 25 poll for Division II and Division III football. The AFCA was founded in a meeting for 43 coaches at the Hotel Astor in New York City on Dec. 27, 1921. It is headquartered in Waco, Texas (the headquarters building is located across from Baylor University, formerly coached by AFCA executive director Grant Teaff). The association has over 10,000 members and represents coaches at all levels including the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, the National Junior College Athletic Association, the National Federation of State High School Associations, the National Football League, the Canadian Football League, USA Football, the National Football Foundation, College Football Hall of Fame, and Pop Warner Football. The AFCA is considered the primary professional association for football coaches at all levels of competition. Another primary goal of the American Football Coaches Association is the promotion of safety. The association has established a code of ethics and has made many safety recommendations. An annual injury survey begun by the AFCA in the 1930s has provided valuable data and has led to a remarkable reduction of injuries in the sport down through the years. The NCAA Rules Committee often follows recommendations made by the AFCA. Condition: Very good / Very good.
