Voting is underway for the 2013 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award, the only college football award celebrating college coaches who best exemplify responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship and excellence both on and off the field. Visit CoachoftheYear.com or Facebook.com/LMCoachoftheYear to cast a vote for your favorites, and in the process support both charity and scholarship in college communities all over the country.
Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year selects winners from four college football divisions – FBS, FCS, Division II, and Division III – who will each receive $50,000 from Liberty Mutual Insurance to donate to the charity or charities of their choice. In addition, winning coaches earn $20,000 for their school’s alumni association to support scholarship. Since 2006, Liberty Mutual Insurance has awarded $1.8 million to more than 100 charities and colleges across the country through its Coach of the Year Award winners.
Former winners of the award represent an elite class of college coaches who consistently challenge their players to achieve excellence both on and off the field. Last year’s Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award recipients were Brian Kelly, Notre Dame (FBS); Willie Fritz, Sam Houston State (FCS); Peter Rossomando, University of New Haven (Division II); and Glenn Caruso, University of St. Thomas (Division III).
Following the close of fan voting on December 3, the top 15 coaches with the most fan votes in each of the four college football divisions advance to an evaluation process to determine the finalists. On December 10, 10 FBS finalists and five each in FCS, Division II and Division III will be announced at a press conference held in conjunction with the National Football Foundation Hall of Fame Class of 2013 induction in New York City. A finalist round of voting will then reopen for fans, while at the same time ballots will be cast by members of the College Football Hall of Fame and a select group of the national college football media with the results determining this year’s winners.
The 2013 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award winner announcement event will take place in Newport Beach, Calif., on Monday, January 6, 2014, in advance of the national championship game
