GREENSBORO — The Atlantic Coast Conference’s coaches have selected Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston as the league’s player of the year and Duke’s David Cutcliffe as the coach of the year.
The ACC announced the results of the coaches’ vote Wednesday, one week after the voting media selected its award winners.
Winston, a Heisman Trophy favorite, also was voted the league’s rookie of the year, the offensive player of the year and the first-team all-ACC quarterback by the coaches.
They picked Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald as the defensive player of the year and Virginia Tech cornerback Kendall Fuller as the defensive rookie of the year.
Winston and No. 1 Florida State beat Duke 45-7 in the league title game and will play No. 2 Auburn in the BCS title game.
Winston and Boston College running back Andre Williams — both Heisman finalists — each received the maximum 39 voting points in all-ACC team voting.
Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own players and first-team votes were worth three points, second-team selections worth two and third-team picks worth one.
Winston is one of seven Seminoles on the first team and a league-high 17 Florida State players on the three teams. Clemson and Duke each had 10 players picked to the teams while Miami and Virginia Tech had nine apiece.
Winston received 10 votes for player of the year to four for Williams.
Cutcliffe had 11 votes for the coach of the year award and Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher had three.
