NEW ORLEANS (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles has already come out a winner on the day of the BCS championship game.

Miles won the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award for the Football Bowl Subdivision after leading his top-ranked Tigers to a perfect regular-season record and an SEC championship.

The other winners were Montana State's Rob Ash in the Football Championship Subdivision, Pittsburg State's Tim Beck in Division II and St. Thomas' Glenn Caruso in Division III.
