After orchestrating one of the biggest turnarounds in school history, Tennessee State head coach Dana Ford was named Ohio Valley Conference of the Year.

Ford, 31, is the youngest head coach in the country, has led the Tigers to the biggest turnaround in the nation this season.

After posting a 5-26 record in Ford’s first season in 2014-15, TSU finished the 2015-16 regular season with a 20-9 record and secured the fourth seed in the upcoming OVC Tournament.

It marks the third time a TSU coach has earned OVC Coach of the Year after Frankie Allen won the award in 1993 and was Co-Coach of the Year in 1995.
