BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Auburn's Gus Malzahn added yet another coaching award Friday after winning the Bobby Bowden National Collegiate Coach of the Year by the Over the Mountain Touchdown Club.

Malzahn, who won the Paul "Bear" Bryant Coach of the Year Award on Wednesday, was chosen as the Birmingham group's winner over Duke's David Cutcliffe, Baylor's Art Briles, Michigan State's Mark Dantonio and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher.

Bowden, the former Florida State head coach and NCAA record holder for career wins, will present the award to Malzahn on March 2.

The latest accolade, which is chosen by members of the touchdown club and the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association, adds to the growing list of honors for Auburn's first-year coach, who helped guide the Tigers to a 12-2 season and a berth in the BCS title game just one year removed from a 3-9, winless-in-the-SEC season in 2012.

List of Malzahn's coaching awards for the 2013 season:

SEC Coach of the Year

Home Depot Coach of the Year

Sporting News Coach of the Year

Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year

Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year

AP College Football Coach of the Year

Paul "Bear" Bryant Coach of the Year

Bobby Bowden National Collegiate Coach of the Year
