We are thrilled to introduce an exciting new opportunity for fans of the Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards! The Fan Vote allows college football fans to weigh in with their choice for Coach of the Year. We can’t wait to see who comes out on top!
*The Fan Vote does not weigh into the selection of the Paul “Bear” Bryant Award.
The Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards recognizes college football coaches for their contributions both on and off the field. Each year, one top performing coach is selected to take home the “Bear” bust trophy and claim the final title of the season: the Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year Award.
Behind the scenes, the award is much bigger than a college football game and a season’s success. It is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on heart disease and stroke while raising valuable funds to support research of the American Heart Association. Through the work and efforts of our volunteers and sponsors, the campaign has raised millions towards the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association.
