NFL commissioner Roger Goodell received the 2012 CEO Coach of the Year Award from the American Football Colleges Foundation.
Goodell was selected by a unanimous vote of the AFCF board of directors. He will be honored on Dec. 10, 2012.
“I am deeply honored to be recognized by the American Football Coaches Foundation,” Goodell said. “I take my responsibility to the game of football very seriously, especially as we place a sharp focus on player health and safety and the integrity of the game. We know that our actions impact all levels of the game and we have to make sure that we strive every day to do what is right for the game.”
2012 will be Goodell's seventh season as commissioner.
