It's no surprise that Brian Kelly earned his third Big East Coach of the Year honor becoming only the second coach in conference history to win three coaching honors. Dennis Erickson of Miami won the award in 1991, 1992 and 1994 and the first coach to win the honor in consecutive years.
Not being left behind was Mardy Gilyard who earned his second consecutive Big East Special Teams Player of the Year honors. Gilyard becomes the second player to win back-to-back honors in the conference.
On the first team defense Aaron Webster was named as a safety and was the only Bearcat listed on the first team defense.
The Bearcats saw several members earn second team honors on both sides of the football.
On defense the Bearcats again saw only one player earn honors on the second team as Ricardo Mathews (DL) was named to the team.
Overall, despite being the Big East Champion the Bearcats only saw eleven players earn All-Big East honors. Pittsburgh lead the way with fourteen players on both teams and West Virginia placed ten players on the all-conference team.
