Norvell Named To Coach Of The Year Watch List

TALLAHASSEE – Florida State football head coach Mike Norvell has been named to the Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year Award Watch List, it was announced Tuesday.

Norvell is one of 26 coaches across the country in consideration for the award, which is presented each year to a college football coach for contributions that make the sport better for athletes and fans by demonstrating grit, integrity and a winning approach both on and off the field.

Florida State is 6-0 this season, including 4-0 in the ACC, which are both its best marks since 2015. The Seminoles are ranked No. 4 in this week’s Associated Press and Coaches Polls and are in the top-5 of the national rankings for the seventh straight week. FSU’s 16 wins and 84.2 winning percentage since the start of the 2022 season are both the best in the ACC.

The Seminoles have won 12 games in a row dating back to last season, the third-longest active streak in the country, and scored at least 30 points in each, the second-longest active streak nationally. Florida State has displayed tremendous balance with contributions from all three phases. FSU leads the ACC in scoring offense, defensive touchdowns scored and net punting and ranks in the top-seven nationally in all three categories.

Norvell was a finalist for the Bear Bryant Coach of the Year Award in 2019.
