Mark Stoops has been one of the best coaches in college football the last few seasons and national sportswriters are beginning to take notice.

The Associated Press, voted on by those who cover SEC schools for the outlet, released their mid-season honors for the SEC Wednesday.

The AP named the Kentucky coach the Coach of the First Half for the Wildcats 6-1 start to the season.

With a strong finish in the final five games, the Wildcats are on track for a major Bowl game, something the program hasn’t experienced in a long time.

If the Wildcats close strong, Stoops will be in the conversation for National Coach of the Year in a couple of months.
