KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Duke football coach David Cutcliffe is the 2014 winner of the Neyland Trophy, an award the Knoxville Quarterback Club gives annually to a major contributor to college athletics.
The Knoxville Quarterback Club also announced Tuesday it is giving Tim Brando its Lindsey Nelson Broadcasting Award, which goes each year to someone "who has exemplified Nelson's passion for broadcasting in their careers."
Cutcliffe and Brando will receive their awards April 12 and will be honored at Neyland Stadium that day during pregame ceremonies for the Orange & White Game, the name given to Tennessee's spring football game.
Cutcliffe led Duke to a 10-4 record and an Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division title last season. Cutcliffe was named the national coach of the year by five different organizations. He coached at UT for 16 years, and was the offensive coordinator from 1993 to 1998.
