Mike Smith Named Coach of the Year by Sporting News

It’s the third time Mike Smith has been selected as Coach of the Year by Sporting News. (Scott Boehm)

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith has been named Coach of the Year by Sporting News. It’s the third time Smith earned the award; he was also named Coach of the Year in 2008 and 2010.

Smith coached the Falcons to a 13-3 record and a playoff win – the first since the 2004 season. Atlanta failed to make the Super Bowl, but that doesn’t take away from the job Smith did this year. Taking into consideration he had two new coordinators (offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, defensive coordinator Mike Nolan), and the season is even more impressive.

Over the past five seasons, Smith has racked up 56 wins to just 24 losses. That’s impressive anyway you slice it.
