Vote Bill O’Brien For Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award
It’s time to start voting for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year again, an award that goes to the college football coach who best demonstrates “responsibility, integrity, sportsmanship, and excellence both on and off the field.”
The award, which is endorsed by the College Football Hall of Fame, is in its eighth year. The winner from each college football division chooses a charity to receive $50,000 and earns their school’s alumni association a $20,000 grant.
Fans vote to select the top 15 coaches before a scoring model based on the criteria mentioned above narrows that down to just ten. The winner is chosen based on 20 percent fan votes, 55 percent College Football Hall of Fame selection committee votes, and 25 percent national media votes.
O’Brien was among elite company last season when he was selected as a top 10 finalist for Division I football, joining a list that included Urban Meyer, Mark Richt, Nick Saban, and Kevin Sumlin, among others. Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly went on to win the award, but O’Brien did receive some personal accolades of his own after a historic Penn State football season.
It’s time for you to do your part and go vote for O’Brien to win this year’s Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award. You must like the Liberty Mutual Facebook page to cast a vote and you’re allowed one vote per day, so bookmark the page and help our coach win this prestigious award.
