VOTE HERE FOR COACH LEMBO

Ball State fans can vote now for third-year head coach Pete Lembo to be named the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year. 

Lembo has led the Cardinals to a 4-1 start in 2013, including a 2-0 mark in the Mid-American Conference.  In his second season in 2012, Lembo guided Ball State to a 9-4 overall record and a berth in the Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl.

This year's 4-1 start marks the best record for a Ball State football team through five games since starting the 2008 season with a 5-0 mark.  It also marks just the fourth start of 4-1 or better for the Cardinals since 1978.

Each of the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year winners from four college football divisions – Football Bowl Subdivision, Football Championship Subdivision, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III – receives $50,000 from Liberty Mutual Insurance to donate to the charity or charities of their choice.  In addition, winning coaches earn $20,000 for their school’s alumni association to support scholarship. Since 2006, Liberty Mutual Insurance has awarded $1.8 million to more than 100 charities and colleges across the country through its Coach of the Year Award winners.

Now through Dec. 3, fans can visit www.CoachoftheYear.com to cast their vote for their favorite coach in each of the four divisions.

Fans can also vote on FACEBOOK.

Winning coaches will be announced Jan. 6, 2014, prior to the national championship game.
