Don't miss the feature on Football Coach Mark Speckman on national TV this week, and cast your vote for Coach of the Year. Speckman will be one of three coaches featured this weekend on the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Spotlight on ABC-TV. The 30-minute show will air Saturday, Nov. 3, at 4 p.m. (PDT) on KATU-TV Channel 2 in Portland, Ore. Please check local listings for your area. Also featured will be Art Briles, coach at the University of Houston, and Dino Mangiero, coach at Poly Prep Country Day School in Brooklyn, N.Y.

A Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award will be selected from each NCAA division in late December. Each winner will earn $50,000 for his choice of a charity or charities. An additional $20,000 will go to the alumni association of the institution where each coach is employed.

The winning coach is determined in a mixture of fan voting, plus voting by selected members of the College Football Hall of Fame and the national media. Fan voting will determine 20 percent of the selection process, with 55 percent from Hall of Fame members and 25 percent from the national media. Each fan is allowed to vote online one time each day through Nov. 27. Vote for Speckman
