LSU head coach Brian Kelly was named The Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week on Tuesday following the Tiger's impressive 45-20 win over No. 7 Ole Miss.

The Dodd Trophy Coach of the Week award honors a football coach who led his team to a significant victory during the previous week, while also embodying the award's three pillars of scholarship, leadership and integrity.

Brian Kelly led LSU to a 45-20 victory over No. 7 Ole Miss on Saturday, handing the Rebels their first loss of the season. After trailing 17-3 early in the second quarter, the Tigers finished the game on a 42-3 run to capture Kelly's first win over a top-10 opponent in his first season in Baton Rouge. LSU quarterback Jayden Daniels ran for three touchdowns and passed for two scores to lead the Tigers, setting an LSU record for touchdowns rushing in a season by a quarterback with nine.

The Tigers' sixth win of the season moved them to No. 18 in the most recent AP poll and into a first-place tie in the SEC West Division standings.

"This was a signature win for Coach Kelly and LSU football in his first season with the Tigers," said Jim Terry, chairman of the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Foundation. "Coach Dodd would tell you a win like this is a culmination of months of preparation, and a commitment to excellence on both sides of the ball." Read more.

From a coaching perspective, he's as good as any coach in the SEC. Please keep this man until he wants to retire.

Well deserved. The fact that Kelly has the team in this position considering where we were when he was hired is on another level.
