BYU football: LaVell Edwards receives award at title game
Legendary BYU football coach LaVell Edwards received the Football Bowl Association Champions Award Monday night. The announcement was made during an on-field presentation at the Tostitos BCS National Championship game.
"LaVell Edwards served as the BYU head coach for nearly 30 years and led the Cougars to 22 bowl appearances. It is my honor and privilege to present him with the FBA's Champions Award for his distinguished service and dedication to his university, his student-athletes and to postseason college football," said Tina Kunzer-Murphy, chair of the FBA and executive director of the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.
The Football Bowl Association Champions Award is bestowed upon an individual who has provided distinguished service to college football, with an emphasis on being a contributor to post-season football bowl games. Last year's recipient was former Pac-10 commissioner, Tom Hansen. The first recipient in 2008 was SEC commissioner Roy Kramer.
