Welcome to the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year website. Since 1976 outstanding college football coaches have been recognized for their leadership both on and off the playing field. The Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award winners are among the greatest coaches in the history of collegiate football – coaches who closely emulated the principles espoused by Coach Bobby Dodd throughout his lifetime.
In order for a coach to be eligible to receive the Bobby Dodd Award, he must not only win on the gridiron, but he must lead his players to excel in the classroom and in service to their fellowman.
On the award plaque that is presented are these words: "In recognition of a high and more noble aspect of college coaching…a style that emphasizes something more than winning the game…a belief that the game of football should be kept in perspective with college life in general." That is what the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award is all about.
We hope that you will find this website to be both interesting and informative. It will be updated on a regular basis to keep you informed about the activities associated with the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation.
