Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe has been elected to the Board of Trustees of the American Football Coaches Association, the organization announced on Tuesday at its annual convention in Indianapolis, Ind.

“I am deeply humbled to be asked to serve the AFCA in this capacity for a second time,” said Cutcliffe. “The AFCA is one of the true pillars of this incredible game we call college football, and it will be an honor to help guide our peers into the future. I look forward to the opportunity to work alongside Grant Teaff and the other members of this group to help give back to the sport which has obviously been such a significant part of my life.”

The Board formulates policy and provides direction for the AFCA, which was founded in 1922 by Amos Alonzo Stagg, John Heisman and others. The AFCA has more than 11,000 members from all levels of the profession.

Gill and Lennon will be the Football Championship Subdivision representatives on the Board, while Cutcliffe will be the Football Bowl Subdivision AFCA District 2 representative.

Returning members of the AFCA Board of Trustees include incoming president Mike Welch of Ithaca College; first vice-president Tommy Tuberville of the University of Cincinnati; second vice-president Todd Berry of the University of Louisiana-Monroe and third vice-president Lee Owens of Ashland University.
