DURHAM, NC (WWAY) -- Duke's David Cutcliffe has been named Walter Camp 2013 Coach of the Year, the Walter Camp Football Foundation announced today.

Cutcliffe, who was named ACC Coach of the Year earlier this week, led the No. 20 Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2 ACC) to the ACC's Coastal Division title and a date with No. 1 Florida State Saturday in the conference championship game in Charlotte.

The Walter Camp Coach of the Year is selected by the nation's 125 Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors. Cutcliffe is the first Duke coach to receive the award, and the first honoree from the ACC since Maryland's Ralph Friedgen in 2001.

Cutcliffe is in his sixth season as head coach of Duke. His team's 10 wins are the most in school history, bettering the previous standard of nine set by the 1933, 1936, 1938 and 1941 squads.

Cutcliffe was also named ACC Coach of the Year last season.
