The Dodd Trophy Nominating Committee

The Dodd Trophy Nominating Committee is made up of all previous winners, national media, a member of the Dodd family and a College Football Hall of Fame member.

Each year, the Committee identifies a group of finalists for The Dodd Trophy who meet the rigorous standards of excellence established by the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation, and exemplify the award’s tenets of scholarship, leadership and integrity.

The ultimate winner is selected from the list of finalists through a voting process by the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation Board.
