Congratulations to Bill Clark who got one season to coach the University of Alabama-Birmingham and had begun the process of turning the program around.
A 6-6 record and the 1st Bowl Eligible Blazer team in 10-years was enough to get Clark Coach of the Year honors in Conference USA.
And the vote wasn't close. He won in a landslide.
Clark now finds himself out of work and hopefully he'll land a gig. He deserves it for what he did at UAB.
Many of Clark's assistants and several players have already found new homes as the Blazers have shut down the football operation.
Clark has not.
But the award recognizes the good work he did and in the cyclical world of College Football it should be enough to warrant a job. Even if it's as an assistant.
Let's hope that happens.
