NEW HAVEN, Conn. – 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.
