Penn defensive coordinator Ray Priore and Villanova offensive coordinator Sam Venuto are among the four finalists for the FCS National Coordinator of the Year. Fans can vote on the award through Dec. 13 by going to and clicking 2009 coaches of the year and then Division I-AA coordinators.

A panel of current and former coaches along with past recipients will evaluate the candidates and select a winner. Votes will be considered, but the panel has the final say.
