Duke’s Cutcliffe wins Camp coach of the year award

Duke’s David Cutcliffe has been selected coach of the year by

the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

Cutcliffe has led the 20th-ranked Blue Devils (10-2) to a school

record for victories and their first appearance in the Atlantic

Coast Conference championship game. Duke plays No. 1 Florida State

in Charlotte, N.C., on Saturday night.

Cutcliffe, the former Mississippi coach who took over at Duke in

2008, has guided the Blue Devils to eight straight victories, the

program’s longest streak since 1941.

Last year’s winner of the Walter Camp coach of the year was

Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly.
