NEW YORK, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Eden Prairie (Minn.) High School coach Mike Grant was named the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Friday during Super Bowl festivities in New York.

Grant, a 35-year coaching veteran, is the son of Bud Grant, Football Hall of Fame member whose Minnesota Vikings teams went to four Super Bowls but never won. The nomination was sponsored by the Vikings.

Mike Grant will receive a $25,000 prize, $15,000 of which will go to Eden Prairie's football program, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Friday.

The NFL said the award is designed to "honor exemplary high school football coaches who demonstrate ... integrity, achievement and leadership exemplified by the winningest coach in NFL history, Don Shula."
