Auburn Tigers head coach Gus Malzhan has been named the Associated Press coach of the year.

Malzahn led the Tigers to an 11-1 regular season record in 2013, an SEC Championship Game victory over Missouri, and a berth in the 2014 BCS title game.

“It’s very humbling,” he said Monday. “Any time you get awards like this, it’s a team thing, as far as our staff and our players. It’s been fun to be a part of this year.”

While it’s been Malzahn directing the ship, he couldn’t have done it without the players buying into his system.

“It’s a real tribute to our players that they’ve bonded together,” Malzahn said. “They’ve done everything our coaches have asked, and I think the No. 1 thing is we developed good relationships with our players. We trust our players, the players trust our coaches and we’ve got each others’ backs.”

Malzahn, who received 33 votes to win the award, is the second Auburn coach, and fifth SEC coach, in history to be named the AP coach of the year.

Duke’s David Cutcliffe finished second with 17 votes.

Auburn will take on Florida State on Monday, Jan. 6, in the BCS National Championship Game.
