How has Saban only won 1 CotY award?
We all know he should win it at least every other year, or that they should name it after him.

I’ll bet other coaches are embarrassed to win it knowing they aren’t as deserving as Sabear.

Whoever votes on these things are ratards.

Because the Coach of the Year award is really just "Coach who surpassed expectations" award.

Honestly, I think it's because its understood that he is the goat. There should be an asterisk on the trophy that denotes *best coach not named Nicholas Saban.

They said a team with that much talent could coach itself

I guess it's the old Calipari theory that he can just roll the balls out and have the best team

You realize he recruited those guys. That's part of his coaching job

All these awards mean nothing.

Winning the title means something.

Winning so much that they change the rules to stop you means something.

Winning so much that they start a 4 team playoff to stop you means something.

Winning so much that they are about to expand to an 8 team playoff means something.

It's not the best coach that year, it's always the biggest turnaround or biggest surprise teams coach that wins it.

If it was a true best coach that year, he'd have 10 or 12.

Tell me if you'd rather have Brian Kelly or Nick Saban.

It goes to a coach that the country has incredibly low expectations for who exceeds them, someone like 0gre.

His team out talents every team he plays every season. Hard to prove yourself as the best coach when you come in with a loaded deck. Thats not to say he hasn't made good decisions with his rosters ...he has but some of these guys out their competing with rosters full of 3stars.

All that talent he gets and he only wins the natty a bit less than half the time?

Clearly underachieving.

Besides, some coaches are eliminated from consideration for prematurely wetting themselves on the sidelines.

Yes, they have changed rules the last 10 years to try to slow Saban.
They've put in New recruiting guidelines

Put in an early signing period RIGHT IN THE TIME Bama is preparing for a national title (this being the most blatant one)

Approved outside coaches having camps in Alabama

Went to a 4 team playoff

Will go to 8 team playoff, eventually 16

Stopped enforcing linemen downfield penalty

All this done to slow Saban. We know who should the coach of EVERY year.

He wins coach of the year every February (and now December too). Saban may or may not be the best X & O coach ever, but he is the greatest recruiter by a mile. And that is why I hate him.

They typically give it to the coach who exceed expectations for that year

This. Every single year it goes to the coach who had an unexpectedly good year. Many of them won for seasons that were huge outliers in the coaches career that were never repeated or even approached again . So, did the coach do a great job or just have a fortunate combination of circumstances.

- Ralph Friedgen
- Tyrone Willingham
- Greg Schiano
- Gene Chizik
- Mike Mcyintire

And for some reason, they love Brian Kelly. He’s won 3.

When he retires the Coty award will be named after him.
