MISSOULA, Mont. - University of Montana Grizzly head basketball coach Wayne Tinkle got a little extra love this Valentine's Day.
Tinkle was named the ‘Sexiest Man in College Basketball;' an award handed out by collegeinsider.com.
The website compiled a list of 100 college basketball coaches and members of the media and Tinkle took the top honor.
The committee called him a "snow - capped mountain of a coach" who is actually a gentle giant.
"You know a coach would probably rather be known for championships, trips to the NCAA Tournament," Tinkle said in his interview with the website. "But it's quite a thrill and we'll enjoy it."
Some others who made the top 100 included Steve Alford from UCLA, Kentucky's John Calipari, Bob Huggins from West Virginia University and Bill Self from the University of Kansas.
