Predicting the 2014-15 Coach of the Year in Each Major CBB Conference
USA TODAY Sports

Pictured above are the head coaches at two of college basketball's most storied programs: Villanova's Jay Wright (facing camera) and Georgetown's John Thompson III (not so much). As we gather to discuss Coach of the Year awards, these two lead us off for a reason.

Everyone has a different set of criteria for how they vote for their conference's COY. Some like the leader of the conference champion. Some like the coach who shows flexibility in winning with a team that may not fit his typical style. And others favor the coach whose team exceeds all expectations, making the award sort of a token of appreciation along the same lines as a Hallmark card.
