SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Trinity University Tigers head football Coach Steve Mohr has received a high honor from the American Football Coaches Association.
Coach Mohr has been elected the AFCA Region III Coach of the Year, for the fifth time in his 22 seasons at the Tigers helm.
He guided the Tigers to a 10-0 regular-season record - Trinity's first undefeated campaign since 2005 - to a 15th Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship, and to a 12th appearance in the NCAA Division III Tournament.
The Tigers captured their first SCAC crown since 2007, and played in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in four years. McMurry beat Trinity 25-16 in the NCAA opening round, in a game played Nov. 19 at the Trinity University Football Stadium.
Coach Mohr's colleagues voted him the 2011 SCAC Coach of the Year, marking the 11th time he was the recipient of the conference accolade.
Since taking over Trinity's program in 1990, Coach Mohr's teams have posted an overall record of 174-66 (.725), and have amassed a SCAC record of 90-27 (.769). Beginning with the 1994 season, when the Tigers earned their first playoff berth, Trinity has chalked up a record of 164-36 (.820).
He is now tied for eighth place in all-time victories (174) among active Division III coaches, moving up from 10th. Coach Mohr stands at No. 20 in winning percentage (.725) in the DIII active coaches category. He previously was ranked 22nd.
Coach Mohr guided the Tigers to the 2002 Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl (the NCAA Division III Championship game), and to the national semifinals in 1998 and 1999.
