ATLANTA -

David Cutcliffe, who led Duke to its first 10-win season and spot in the ACC championship game, has been named the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year.

Cutcliffe's No. 22 Blue Devils will play No. 20 Texas A&M in Tuesday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl. This is the first time Duke will play in back-to-back bowl games.

Kansas State's Bill Snyder won the 2012 award, named for the former longtime Georgia Tech coach.

Cutcliffe also has been named the Walter Camp and Maxwell Award coach of the year honors this year.

The Chick-fil-A Bowl is taking over management of the Bobby Dodd Award in 2014. Eight former coach of the year winners attended Monday's announcement: Bill Curry, Fisher DeBerry, Vince Dooley, Ralph Friedgen, Fred Goldsmith, Jim Grobe, Ken Hatfield and Dick Sheridan.
