Dick Lyman, rodeo coach for the University of Great Falls, has been selected the Big Sky Region coach of the year.
The inaugural UGF rodeo was also selected the Big Sky Region's top rodeo for 2012-13.
Lyman has been the rodeo coach at UGF for three years.
"This one goes to my family,'' said Lyman of the coach of the year award. "I could not have dreamed up such an undertaking without their support and help."
He and family put on the first UGF rodeo, May 2-4, at Four Seasons Arena. The event drew 2,200 fans. There is now discussion among the Big Sky Region coaches to have the UGF rodeo close out the spring season.
