The award is named for former University of Pennsylvania coach George Munger. His devotion to ethics in athletics, and his commitment to education is the standard for which all college coaches should strive.
Voters for the Maxwell College Awards are NCAA Head College Football Coaches, members of the Maxwell Football Club & sportswriters and sportscasters from across the country.
The 25th Annual George Munger Award winner for College Coach of the Year is Nick Saban of University of Alabama.
Saban is the premier head coach in college football, an opinion with so much support that it borders on fact. The greatest of all-time? He’s quickly headed in that direction, if he hasn’t already arrived. Of course, the rub of being so widely acclaimed is that expectations are perennially set in a different galaxy. Fail to win a league title and compete for a national championship, and it’s an off year that warrants a mea culpa.
