Colorado head cross country coach Mark Wetmore has been named the 2015 USTFCCCA Mountain Region men's coach of the year.

This is the 12th time in 21 years that Wetmore has been named the men's region coach of the year. He has also earned the honor on the women's side seven times.

The No. 1 CU men's team won their second consecutive NCAA Mountain Region championship last Friday. Earlier this season, the Buffs recorded their fifth straight Pac-12 Conference title and won the NCAA Pre-National Invitational.

The Buffaloes have been ranked No. 1 all season and are the two-time defending NCAA champions. The NCAA Championships are Saturday in Louisville, Ky.
