University of Miami director of track and field/cross country Amy Deem was named the ACC Women’s Indoor Head Coach of the Year.

Deem, in her 26th year as coach of the Hurricanes, led them to their first ACC Indoor championship since 2006 and third in school history. Her athletes earned 14 All-ACC honors, with nine of those being first-team mention. Miami went on to a 17th-place finish at the NCAAs.

The ACC Coach of the Year honor is the fifth for Deem, who was honored in 2005 and 2006 after the Hurricanes swept the women’s ACC indoor and outdoor title each of those years.

“It’s a great honor to be voted the ACC Coach of the Year,” Deem said. “I am fortunate to have a great staff, as well as a committed and talented team, that allowed me to win this award.”
