— Duke head coach David Cutcliffe was named Sporting News Co-National Coach of the Year, sharing the honor with Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn.

Cutcliffe, already the winner of the ACC Coach of the year for the second consecutive season as well as the Walter Camp Foundation National Coach of the Year, is also a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award presented by the Football Writers Association of America, the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year and Bowden Coach of the Year awards

Cutcliffe has led Duke to a school-record 10 wins, an ACC Coastal Division title, a berth in the ACC Championship game and a trip to face No. 21 Texas A&M in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31. The Blue Devils have qualified for bowls in back-to-back seasons for the first time in school history and enter the bowl game ranked No. 24 in the BCS rankings.

Cutcliffe is the second coach in school history to earn national coach of the year recognition, joining Fred Goldsmith who earned the Bobby Dodd Award in 1994.

    Awesome for Coach Cutcliffe and Duke Football. Not a Duke fan, but a big fan of Coach Cutcliffe. Love to hear him talk about football and life.

    Nobody deserves the award more than Cutcliffe. The Auburn coach didn't do half the job Cut did in making his team better. The co-award is an insult to Cut.

    Not a fan of Duke football either, but I am a huge fan of Coach Cutliffe. He is a winner, not only on the field, but in life.

    What a year for DUKE! I never thought I'd see the backing from the administration that is there now. Cutcliffe is one hell of a coach; all of his experience with the SEC over the years is showing big time. He has changed every aspect of the program to this point with more to come. I am ready to see the stadium upgrades when done. He has DUKE in the conversation, that's all I wanted as a fan, just be competitive; to have a chance and stop being dragged up and down the field like they were between '95 and '07 practically every game regardless who the competition was. He has his team pick up trash around campus, help with local charities, places high standards on academics, character, giving back and recruits North Carolina hard.

    GO DEVILS!

    Very happy for Coach Cut - he deserves every award he receives. I'm a Heels fan, but I have a lot of respect for Coach Cut. He is much more than a coach to his team; he's a father figure who teaches life lessons as well as lessons on the gridiron.
