When trying to figure out who would make it into each category for the inaugural BSD Reader Awards, the hardest one to narrow down to three nominees was the Position Coach of the Year award. The three that were nominated were all brilliant, but some of the guys who didn't make it deserve some kind of recognition.
Take, for instance, Herb Hand. Yeah, the offensive line was pretty bad, but it became serviceable by the end of the year. He deserves a ton of credit from turning it into something semi-competent, considering the fact that it was a raging tire fire at the start of the season. Also, Bob Shoop did an amazing job coaching the safeties. But you already know that. Because Bob Shoop.
Without further adieu, here are the three nominees for the Position Coach of the Year Award:
- Brent Pry, Linebackers
- Terry Smith, Cornerbacks
- Sean Spencer, Defensive Line
