Colorado's Mike MacIntyre has collected another award.

On Wednesday, MacIntyre was named the Home Depot Coach of the Year after leading the Buffaloes to one of the great turnaround seasons in recent college football history.

The Buffs have compiled a 10-3 record this season and won the Pac-12 South division with an 8-1 conference mark. They take a No. 10 national ranking into the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29 against No. 12 Oklahoma State. A year ago, the Buffs went 4-9 and finished last in the Pac-12 South, at 1-8.

Previously, MacIntyre was named the Pac-12 coach of the year, and last week was named the Walter Camp national coach of the year. This week, he was named a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year and AFCA Coach of the Year awards. He's also a finalist for the Bobby Dodd national coach of the year award.

MacIntyre will receive his latest award during The Home Depot College Football Awards show, which is live on ESPN on Thursday from the College Football Hall of Fame and Chick-fil-A Fan Experience in Atlanta. The show starts at 5 p.m. MST.

Thursday's presentation in Atlanta is just a part of MacIntyre's busy schedule this week. Since playing in last Friday's Pac-12 Championship game, MacIntyre has been on the road recruiting the first part of this week. Thursday morning he will be in San Antonio for the Valero Alamo Bowl press conference that also features Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy.
