The honors just keep pouring in for Jerry Mack. North Carolina Central’s head football coach was named an American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) 2016 Regional Coach of the Year on Tuesday.
The honor is just the latest for the third-year head coach who led his team to its third-straight MEAC title and first outright conference title since the program claimed the 2006 CIAA championship.
NCCU finished 9-2 in 2016 season, earning Mack MEAC Coach of The Year last month. The 36-year-old has led it to a 24-10 mark overall and a 21-3 record in MEAC play.
Mack is also up for the Eddie Robinson Award, given to the top coach in FCS football. NC A&T’s Rod Broadway and Broderick Fobbs are also finalists.
