During his time coaching the Mountain Hawks he also produced 135 All-Patriot League selections, 25 All-American selections and 236 Patriot League Academic Honor Roll student-athletes. Coen was also picked as a finalist multiple times for the Eddie Robinson Award, honoring head coaches in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision.
