The folks over a Coachoftheyear.com sent out a list of the 5 finalist of the Coach of the Year award for the Divsion III level and they are:
Steve Briggs - Susquehanna University
Greg Debeljak - Case Western Reserve University
John Gagliardi - Saint John's
Steve Staker - Coe College
John Troxell - Frankin & Marshall College
Well, that is just the way it goes sometimes but I'm pretty sure that any of those 5 coaches above would trade places with Coach Smith right now and be in the NCAA Semi-Finials. Great effort Catdome in getting Coach Smith into the top 15 on such short notice.
