OWINGS MILLS - Ravens coach John Harbaugh was awarded the Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching Award Monday.
The award is given to an individual who has experienced outstanding achievement as a coach for a male team and who exhibits a high standard of propriety, imagination and innovation as a character builder in the tradition of great teachers and coaches.
Recent winners aside from Harbaugh include Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, Alabama football coach Nick Saban, former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick.
Other former winners include former Los Angeles Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, former Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden, former Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, former Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula and former UCLA basketball coach John Wooden.
"It means so much for a coach and the son of a coach and for our family, too, to be involved with such an award," Harbaugh said. "So thank you. It will be treasured."
