For the 16th time, Dan Brooks is the ACC Coach of the Year.

Brooks, who currently presides over a Blue Devil group with three team victories, including the ACC Championship, was named the conference's best coach Thursday after a vote by his peers. 

Since Brooks took over the in 1985, Duke has captured seven national championships, a total that is second-most in college women's golf history behind Arizona State. Now, Brooks looks to lead his team to a repeat title in May, and the Blue Devils certainly have a decent shot as a No. 1 seed in the Columbus Regional. 

Additionally, four Duke players—Jaravee Boonchant, Gina Kim, Erica Shepherd and Phoebe Brinker—made the 15-member All-ACC team.
