Duke's David Cutcliffe Named National Coach Of The Year

DURHAM, N.C. -- The Walter Camp Foundation named Duke's head football coach, David Cutcliffe, as the 2013 National Coach of the Year.

Cutcliffe has coached six seasons at Duke. This year, he led the football team to their first winning season, 10-2, since 1994. Their 10 wins are the most a Duke football team has ever won. The 1933, 1936, 1938 and 1941 teams won nine games.

Cutcliffe was also the ACC's Coach of the Year in 2012 and 2013.

"Coach Cutcliffe is more of a mentor than a coach to me and the rest of my teammates," redshirt junior quarterback and team captain Anthony Boone said in a statement. "It's been great, just learning how to be a better quarterback and a better man. What makes him special is that he actually cares; that he's a genuine guy. Everything he says, you can take to heart."

The Walter Camp Coach of the Year is selected by 125 Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors from across the country.
