Cutcliffe selected as finalist for Eddie Robinson CoY Award

Posted December 9, 2013

Duke head coach David Cutcliffe during action at Kenan Stadium between the University of North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke University Blue Devils on November 30, 2013 in Chapel Hill, NC.

Duke head coach David Cutcliffe was selected as one of eight finalists for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year Award presented by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) in conjunction with the Fiesta Bowl.

This season Cutcliffe has guided Duke to a school-record 10 wins, the ACC Coastal Division Championship, a berth in the ACC Championship game and a trip to the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 31. Cutcliffe has already been named the Walter Camp Foundation National Coach of the Year award as well as ACC Coach of the Year for the second straight year.

Joining Cutcliffe as finalists for the Robinson Award are Art Briles (Baylor), Mark Dantonio (Michigan State), Jimbo Fisher (Florida State), Gus Malzahn (Auburn), George O'Leary (UCF), Gary Pinkel (Missouri) and David Shaw (Stanford). The winner of the award will be revealed on Monday, Dec. 16 after voting is conducted by members of the FWAA.

Cutcliffe, in his sixth year at Duke, led the Blue Devils to their first ACC Coastal Division crown and a season resume that includes four straight weeks ranked in the Associated Press and USA Today Coaches Poll top-25, two wins over ranked teams, a 5-0 record in road games and an eight-game winning streak that is the fourth longest in school history. Dukeโ€™s 2013 season will culminate in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 against No. 21 Texas A&M at the Georgia Dome, marking the first time in school history in which Duke has qualified for a bowl in back-to-back seasons.

    you keep saying the SAME thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over...just shut the **** up already. Look at Auburns ****ing schedule dude, look at FSU' schedule, they all have 1-3 gimmies. Move on, damnn.

    And the Auburn coach beat Florida Atlantic, Western Carolina and Arkansas State....whatever. The way Auburn beat UGA and 'Bama would never happen again, it was luck and everybody knows it. Could the Auburn coach win 10 games at DUKE this year?

  • rvm Dec 10, 2013

    as he should be

  • jmcdow2792 Dec 10, 2013

    I hope he wins it. Having the likes of Cut in the ACC reflects well on the rest of the conference. I hope he can influence our coach and others to be more like him.

    And every NC team they played

  • dsalter Dec 9, 2013

    Even though I'm a State fan, I think he deserves NCAA coach of the year. I know they were blown out by Florida State, but so was everyone else...including Florida. I see no one in the way to stop Florida State from taking the national title....including Auburn.

    As a couple of people have commented already; we're talking about Duke FOOTBALL here. Look at what Cutcliffe has accomplished with Duke FOOTBALL.

    I believe it's safe to say that if Cutcliffe was the head coach at Auburn, he'd likely be as successful. Consider the academic/behavioral standards Cut has to deal with compared to that of an Auburn. There's no denying, if you want an elite football team, you'll have to take on those academic under-performers and societal misfits.

    As far as keeping the game with FSU respectable; who has? Geez. At least Duke was the only team to keep them scoreless in the first quarter. Also, FSU scored less than 21 first half point in only 3 games this season. Guess who one of those 3 opponents was? Yep, ole' Cutcliffe's squad. So, relatively speaking, Duke kind of did keep it respectable. Especially for Duke FOOTBALL.
