AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn's Gus Malzahn will pick up his Amos Alonzo Stagg Coaching Award on May 30th at the Auburn Athletics Complex. The United States Sports Academy announced Malzahn its 2014 winner in February for "outstanding achievement as a coach."

Malzahn helped lead Auburn to the SEC championship and a spot in the BCS title game. 

The United States Sports Academy says the winner of its award "should exhibit a high standard of propriety, imagination, and innovation as a character-builder in the tradition of great teacher-coaches." 

Malzahn also won these national coach of the year awards for his 2013 success: the Bobby Bowden Award, the Bear Bryant Award, the Eddie Robinson Award, Home Depot Award, Liberty Mutual Award and was named coach of the year by the Associated Press and the Sporting News.
