It is voted on by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, and proceeds from the awards ceremony benefit the American Heart Association. The College Football Coach of the Year Award began in 1957 and was renamed for Bryant in 1986. Bryant himself won the earlier award in 1961, 1971, and 1973.[1]
