GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - The Atlantic Coast Conference's football coaches have selected Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd as its player of the year and Duke's David Cutcliffe as its coach of the year.

The coaches announced their all-ACC team and award winners Wednesday, and it's almost identical to the team selected last week by media members who cover the league.

All of the major award winners were the same, including Miami's Duke Johnson as the rookie of the year and Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner as the defensive player of the year.

Boyd, running back Andre Ellington and receiver DeAndre Hopkins are among the five Clemson offensive players on the coaches' first team. North Carolina running back Gio Bernard and Duke receiver Conner Vernon also were on the first team.
