Chiawana High School's head football coach has been named the Washington State Coach of the Year less than a week after his team won the 4A state championship.

This is the second time Steve Graff, who also is Chiawana's health and fitness teacher, has received the award, which is given out by the Washington State Football Coaches Association and the NFL's Seattle Seahawks, a release said.

Graff will be honored at the Seahawks game on Dec. 22 and the Chiawana football team will receive a $2,000 grant.

The team and coaching staff were honored at a 40-minute assembly Friday.
