Duluth, Minn. - One season as the head coach of the UMD football team and Curt Wiese could end up with a Coach of the Year Award already.
Wiese is one of five finalists for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award for Division II. The ward promotes charity and scholarship while also honoring coaches for their sportsmanship, integrity, responsibility and excellence, both on and off of the field.
In his first season as UMD's head coach, the Bulldogs went 11-2, won the NSIC North Division Title and reached the playoffs.
The winner will be announced January 6th. The winner will be determined in part by a fan vote.
