BYU men's volleyball coach Chris McGown was named the 2013 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Coach of the Year.
McGown is the third coach at BYU to earn Coach of the Year honors from the MPSF, including his father Carl McGown, who won national championships in 1999 and 2001. Tom Peterson also won co-coach honors in 2003.
Backed by a 25-4 record and an MPSF Championship for the first time since 2004, the Cougars return to the NCAA Tournament. The Cougars won the conference title April 27 against Long Beach State in the Smith Fieldhouse before 4,190 fans.
