“I am humbled to have received this award with all of the other great coaches who have received it. I’m honored. The most important thing for me is that this happened mainly because of our players, what they do week in and week out. We had to overcome a lot of adversity. It is an award that says a lot about our program and our staff. I wish we could be hoisting the team trophy but this award is a true indication of the hard work of our players and a great staff around me. That is who I’m truly happy for. It shows with hard work what can be accomplished. I am truly blessed.”
