South Carolina's Boo Major Named National Coach of the Year by NCEA

- University of South Carolina head coach Boo Major has been named 2014 National Coach of the Year, it was announced on Tuesday by the National Collegiate Equestrian Association.

"This is a big honor for Boo and we felt she was very deserving of this award," said Meghan Cunningham Corvin, president of the NCEA and head coach at UT-Martin. "She's one of the longest serving coaches in the country and has been a leader in our sport."

Major, who just completed her 17th season at the University of South Carolina, was voted national coach of the year by her peers. She guided the Gamecocks to a 15-3 record this season and their second straight Southeastern Conference championship, becoming South Carolina's first team to win back-to-back SEC titles. She was also voted SEC Coach of the Year for the second year in a row. South Carolina finished as the national runner-up this season, losing to Georgia in a tiebreaker in the national championship.

"I'm honored to receive this award from such an outstanding group of coaches," Major said. "I certainly share this with my assistant coaches Ruth Sorrel and Carol Gwin, along with our entire team. We had a special group this year that was committed to winning another championship, and it was a great feeling to win the SEC Championship at home in front of our wonderful fans."

The NCEA head coaches voted on the coach of the year award last week at its annual summer meetings in Orlando, Fla.
