Swofford was joined today by Florida State athletic director Dave Hart and North Carolina State athletic director Lee Fowler. Miami has scheduled a news conference for tomorrow afternoon to include Swofford and Hurricanes A-D Paul Dee. The visit to Miami is the first of three to Big East schools. Different groups are expected at Boston College and Syracuse next week. The site visits are mandatory based on A-C-C bylaws. They could be critical steps in the conference's bid to lure three of the Big East's top programs.
