Washington State University Head Football Coach Mike Leach has been named the Football Bowl Subdivision American Football Coaches Association National Coach of the Year, the organization announced Tuesday.

“This is a great team award and I am honored to accept this on behalf of our team,” said Leach.

Leach guided Washington State to an 11‑2 record, a No. 10 final ranking in both the Associated Press and Coaches Polls, and a victory in the Valero Alamo Bowl over Iowa State last month. The 11 wins in 2018 set a single‑season school record, and he is the first Cougar head coach to lead Washington State to four straight bowl games.
