    San Diego State University's head football coach Rocky Long was awarded the Mountain West Conference "Coach of the Year" this week.

    The Aztecs have enjoyed a good season at 9-3, and clinched their first MWC Championship title last month.

    Long, who frequently does guest recaps for NBC 7 Sports Night, also won the award 10 years ago when he was coaching New Mexico.

    "I'm lucky I'm still here today. I'm an old man," said Long in a press conference. "I don't know how much longer I'm gonna coach. I had a buddy call me and say congratulations, you're really consistent. Every ten years you win coach of the year. I'm not sure, I doubt if I'm around to do it one more time."
