NAIA Coordinator of the Year - Finalists

The FootballScoop Coaches of the Year awards, presented by ProGrass, are the only set of awards that recognize the most outstanding position coaches in college football. Finalists were selected based off of nominations by coaches, athletic directors and other athletic department personnel. The winner will be chosen by the previous winners of this award and will be announced in January. 

The 2013 FootballScoop Coaches of the Year will be recognized and will receive their awards at an event held in their honor at the American Football Coaches Association's annual convention in January. 

This is the first year FootballScoop will honor a NAIA Coordinator of the Year.

Led by the big guys up front, the Raiders allowed just over one sack per game, and also ranked in the top 30 in total rushing offense (2,004 yards). As far as skill players go, Fasnacht oversaw guys that ranked No. 1 nationally in passing yards per game (Austin Dodge - 399 ypg), receiving yards per game (112 ypg), total offense (Dodge - 4,442), and total offense per game (404 ypg).
