Gene Chizik added some more hardware to his trophy case on Monday, accepting the Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching Award. The U.S. Sports Academy Selected Chizik for the Award following Auburn's run to the BCS Championship last season.
Chizik traveled to Daphne to accept the award on Monday, with the Tigers taking a break from the practice field for the first day of classes. Chizik already won the Paul "Bear" Bryant, Bobby Bowden, home Depot and Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year Awards.
Alabama's Nick Saban won the Stagg Award last year.
