CRAWFORD BLOG | Strong named AFCA Regional Coach of the Year

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A nice honor came University of Louisville coach Charlie Strong's way this morning when he was named the Regional Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association.

The AFCA names five regional coaches of the year, and selects its national coach of the year from that group.

Strong was the winner of Region 1 after leading the Cardinals to a 10-2 record, a share of its second Big East championship and a berth in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. It was U of L's first 10-win season since 2006 and its first-ever appearance in the Sugar Bowl. Dabo Swinney of Clemson won in Region 1 last year.

The regional winners will be recognized at the AFCA national convention in Nashville in January.
