John Hufnagel Named Canadian Football League Coach Of The Year

John Hufnagel has been named the 2008 Canadian Football League coach of the year.

Under Hufnagel, the Calgary Stampeders had a CFL-best 13-5 record in the regular season and then won the Grey Cup in Montreal. It was Hufnagel's first year as head coach in Calgary. Hufnagel beat out Ken Miller of the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Marc Trestman of the Montreal Alouettes for the award.

"What a season it was," Hufnagel said. "It was a tremendous race in the West Division. It's the entire organization that has earned this. I am blessed."
