University of Maine head football coach Jack Cosgrove has been named the Division I FCS Coach of the Year by the New England Football Writers.

Cosgrove guided the Black Bears to an 8-3 record this season - his 19th at Maine. On Saturday, the Black Bears play in the NCAA playoffs at Appalachian State.

This is the first time since Tom Lichtenberg in 1989 that a Maine coach was won the award.

The writers also named an All-New England team. Three Maine players made it - offensive lineman Chris Howley, wide receiver Maurice McDonald and safety Jerron McMillian.
