The awards just keep pouring in for Duke Blue Devils head coach David Cutcliffe after a phenomenal 2013 season which saw the team take a trip to the ACC Championship Game as well as nearly beat an SEC team in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
This time, Cutcliffe was awarded the AFCA Coach of the Year Award on Monday morning at the organization’s convention in Indianapolis.
Cutcliffe’s most recent Coach of the Year trophy just adds to the group that already includes the honor from the Maxwell Club and the Walter Camp Foundation.
Duke followed up an incredible 2012 season with an even better 2013 campaign, finishing up the season at 10-2 and appeared in back-to-back bowl games for the first time in the program’s history.
After becoming another victim of the Florida State juggernaut, Cutcliffe and the Blue Devils gave Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies of the SEC all they could handle, even jumping out to a huge lead at halftime before Johnny Football got the best of them in the second half.
Still, Cutcliffe has engineered one of the more impressive turnarounds of any program in recent memory, and is more than deserving of all the recognition he is getting.
