It’s been a fantastic year of redemption for the Michigan Wolverines and head coach Jim Harbaugh in particular.
He’s already won the distinction of being named the NCAA Coach of the Year, and now he’s won another honor. He’s just been named the Associated Press college football coach of the year after winning 22 of 53 first-place votes, beating out Cincinatti’s Luke Fickell:

Meanwhile, Baylor’s Dave Aranda placed third and Michigan State’s Mel Tucker came in fourth.
Harbaugh and the Wolverines are fresh off their dominating victory over Iowa in the Big Ten Championship this past weekend. Of course, that came on the heels of their triumph over their hated rival Ohio State Buckeyes, their first such win since 2011.
