Belichick wins AP Coach of the Year

Despite all of the negative connotations with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick this season, he was today named as the Associated Press Coach of the Year for the second time (he also took home the award after the 2003 season). Belichick earned 29 of 50 votes for the award while leading the Patriots to the first ever 16-0 regular season record.

There had been predictions and rumors that Belichick would be denied the award because of the Spygate scandal and consequent punishment. But the Patriots were simply too dominant for voters to overlook as the team set multiple NFL records in their historic 2007 regular season.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy finished second with 15 votes.
