Miami Hurricanes head football coach, Mark Richt, has just been named the Walter Camp coach of the year.

Richt led the Hurricanes back to national prominence this year as Miami finished with a 10-2 record and were ranked as high as number 2 in the country at one point.

This award also comes just a couple of weeks after Richt was named the ACC coach of the year after leading Miami to their first ever coastal division championship and ACC title appearance.

Richt has been credited with helping bring the swagger back to the U this season as well, which is something that can’t be measured on paper. To add to the list of accomplishments, Richt has led the Canes to their first Orange Bowl appearance since 2004 when they will face off against Wisconsin on December 30th.
