The 52-year-old coach added two more conference titles to his career, bringing his overall conference championships to 12.

“It’s an absolute privilege and honor to be chosen Coach of the Year by the American Athletic Conference and be named as a Co-Founder of the Football Coaches Association,” said Traylor. “It feels great to be able to be affiliated with these two organizations and be part of history, and we are very proud of the 2017 season.”
