The Winged Foot Award

Villanova's Jay Wright and UConn's Geno Auriemma, were winners of the 2016 men's and women's Winged Foot Awards.

 

Coaches Wright and Auriemma were honored at the Winged Foot Award banquet at the New York Athletic Club on Wednesday, May 25th.

The New York Athletic Club’s Winged Foot Award is presented annually to the winning coaches of the Men’s and Women’s NCAA basketball tournaments. Established in 1996, the first recipient of the men’s award was Rick Pitino, then coach of the University of Kentucky. The first women’s award was presented in 1999 to Carolyn Peck, then of Purdue.

With the Final Four games this weekend, the NYAC is excited to see which team will come out on top. The Club looks forward to celebrating and honoring the winning NCAA men's and women's coaches in May at our annual gala dinner. Make sure to check back for all the details!
