Hufnagel Coach of the Year

CFL.ca Staff

WINNIPEG -- Calgary Stampeders general manager and head coach John Hufnagel has been named the 2014 recipient of the Annis Stukus Trophy, awarded to the Canadian Football League Coach of the Year. Hufnagel was presented with the honour earlier today by CFL President and Chief Operating Officer, Michael Copeland at a luncheon in Winnipeg, Manitoba as part of the CFL’s annual league meetings.

“John Hufnagel’s Stampeders completed one of the greatest seasons in Canadian Football League history with the ultimate prize in Canadian football: a Grey Cup victory", said Copeland. “Throughout the year, he overcame adversity and put his team in a position to succeed week in and week out. On behalf of our Board of Governors, and our entire league, we congratulate John on this tremendous honour.?

Hufnagel led the Stampeders to their seventh championship in franchise history, their first since 2008; coincidentally the same year Hufnagel originally won the Annis Stukus Trophy.

Not sure what I appreciate more his coaching or overall running of the team. And if you have not heard his comment to Chris Jones find it somewhere. Either absolutely hilarious or real sour grapes depending on your view.

Any one else and this process of awarding Coach Of The Year would be a farce that the requirements wouldn't (and shouldn't) recover from.

Man that was priceless

Well deserved, Calgary has been the class organization of the league since Hufagel's return.

Yup, have to agree with Hugnagel as the winner.

Congratulations Huff, well deserved !! :thup:

X2.
Great one Huf :lol:
