Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians continues to get national respect.

Arians was named the NFC Coach of the Year at 2015’s installment of the 101 Awards Saturday night.

Every year, a civic organization called “The Committee of 101” hosts the 101 Awards.

The event was initiated in 1969 by a group headed by Kansas City businessman Jack O. Wheeler to honor outstanding achievements in professional football.

Each year, 101 members of the national media select the Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Coach of the Year in the American Football Conference and National Football Conference.

Arians, 62, has led the Arizona Cardinals to 21 wins in his two years as head coach.
