Finalists for the FootballScoop Coach of the Year award on the offensive side of the ball were announced on Monday. Finalists in the defense/special teams and divisional sections will be announced later in the week.

Created in 2008, the FootballScoop Coach of the Year awards are the only coaching honors where coaches must be nominated by one of their peers in order to receive consideration and where each year’s winner is chosen by the prior winners of that award.

Winners will be announced in the coming weeks, and each victor will be honored at the AFCA convention in January.

We are once again honored to work with AstroTurf in honoring these deserving coaches.
