NDSU’s football coach, Craig Bohl, is in the top 15 for the 2013 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year and with the help of the NDSU students vote, Bohl could receive coach of the year.
According to the coach of the year website, Bohl is currently in 3rd place for the Division I-FCS right behind Joe Moglia from Coastal Carolina and Montana State’s, Rob Ash. With your vote, NDSU could bring another win to the board.
The Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award acknowledges football coaches from around the United States that show sportsmanship, responsibility, integrity and excellence.
For eight consecutive years, the College Football Hall of Fame program awards the winning coach from each NCAA division with $50,000 to donate to a charity of their choice, a $20,000 grant to the schools alumni association and a shiny coach of the year trophy.
With the top 15 already deciphered from fan voting, the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame will then use a patented, objective scoring model to determine the ten finalists from the Division I-FBS and the five finalist coaches from each of the other three divisions.
Past winners for the 2012 Coach of the Year award were given to Division I-FBS coach Brian Kelly of Notre Dame, Division I-FCS coach Willie Fritz of Sam Houston State, Division II coach Peter Rossomando of University of New Haven and Division III coach Glenn Caruso of the University of St. Thomas.
Some charities available to donate to are Habitat for Humanity, YMCA, ALS Association, Athletes in Action and more.
This year Coach Bohl deserves this award, and it is up to the NDSU student body to recognize our coach and show off our bison pride to the whole nation.
