WACO, Texas — For the sixth time in his illustrious career, Appalachian State University football head coach Jerry Moore has been named the American Football Coaches Association NCAA Division I FCS Region 2 Coach of the Year, the AFCA announced on Wednesday.

Moore earned the honor after leading fifth-ranked Appalachian to a 10-2 record so far this season, including a perfect 8-0 mark in Southern Conference play and the program’s fifth-straight conference championship. After dropping back-to-back five-point decisions to Conference USA East Division champion East Carolina and Southland Conference co-champion McNeese State to open the year, Moore has led the Mountaineers to 10 wins in a row heading into Saturday’s NCAA Division I Football Championship quarterfinal versus fourth-seeded Richmond.

The SoCon’s all-time winningest coach boasts a career record of 215-123-2 in 28 seasons (good for 21st on the all-time Division I wins list) and is 188-75 in 21 seasons at ASU (making him the winningest coach in SoCon history).

In addition to earning his sixth Regional Coach of the Year award (he also claimed the honor in 1994, 1995, 2005, 2006 and 2008), Moore was recently named the SoCon Coach of the Year for a record seventh time (1991, 1994, 1995, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009). No one else has ever been recognized as the SoCon’s top coach on more than three occasions.

Moore and the Mountaineers are set to square off with Richmond (11-1) for the third-consecutive postseason on Saturday at 7 p.m. at UR Stadium in Richmond, Va.
