BOZEMAN - Post-season recognition is nothing new for Montana State head football coach Rob Ash, the reigning Liberty Mutual FCS Coach of the Year. But Ash's latest honor comes with a twist.
Ash was named 2012 FCS Region 5 Co-Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA). The man he shares that honor with, Willie Fritz, is the coach he'll see on the opposite sideline in Bobcat Stadium Friday night.
"This is a tremendous honor for our entire coaching staff," Ash said. "Any time a head coach is singled out for an honor it's really an acknowledgment that the entire staff has worked hard and enjoyed tremendous success. That is certainly the case here. It's also an honor to share this award with Coach Fritz, who has done such an excellent job at Sam Houston State."
Montana State squares off against Sam Houston State Friday night at 6 pm.
