Gregg Popovich has been named Coach of the Year for the 2011-12 season.
Can't complain about the choice. He helped push the San Antonio Spurs to the #1 seed in the very loaded Western Conference. Popovich also didn't have Manu Ginobili for nearly half the season so that was very impressive.
I wouldn't have griped if Tom Thibodeau won again. The Bulls didn't have Derrick Rose for 27 games. Frank Vogel got the Indiana Pacers to the 3rd seed of the East. And Tyrone Corbin deserves mention for getting the Utah Jazz to the postseason.
But Popovich definitely deserves the award. He also won the award in 2002-03. That season, the Spurs won a title. So I'm sure they're hoping it happens again this year.
