Eastern Washington's Baldwin is Big Sky's coach of the year

Ogden, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Eastern Washington's Beau Baldwin was named the Big Sky Conference's football coach of the year for the second straight season on Wednesday.

Baldwin has guided the third-ranked Eagles to an unbeaten Big Sky record and championship, a 10-2 overall mark and the No. 3 overall seed in the FCS playoffs.

"I am humbled very much," Baldwin said. "Especially in the sport of football, a coach of the year award is more accurately stated as a coaching staff of the year award. So much of it is because of what the assistant coaches do every year. I'm lucky to not only have great football guys, but great teachers and men on this staff. This type of award is a tribute to them. And no staff ever wins a coach of the year award without talented players, great leadership and outstanding character in the locker room. Our players exemplify that."

Baldwin is in his sixth season at EWU and has a 54-21 overall record. The Eagles reached the national semifinals and finished 11-3 last season when Baldwin earned top Big Sky honors.

He is a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Award which honors the FCS coach of the year. That award winner will be announced Dec. 16.
