A 14-0 season, which finished in a Division 5 state championship, helped earn West Catholic football coach Dan Rohn the honor of Detroit Lions Coach of the Year.

The Detroit Lions Coach of the Year award is given to one coach annually. Rohn was honored for the accomplishment at West Catholic on Tuesday.

Rohn led West Catholic to their second straight Division 5 championship and their third in five years. In eight seasons at West Catholic, Rohn has a 87-17 record. The team has made the playoffs each year.

Rohn was previously coach at Fremont. His career record is 143-49. He was also named Detroit Lions Coach of the Week in 2009.

South Christian's Mark Tamminga and three Muskegon-area coaches were among candidates for the recognition.
