Mike Judge is in his seventh year at the Naval Academy coaching the fullbacks.

Navy has compiled a record of 49-29 (.628) in Judge's tenure, beating Army all six times, earning five bowl bids, winning two bowl games, winning four Commander-In-Chief's Trophies and beating Notre Dame twice.

Navy finished the 2013 campaign with a 9-4 record, won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the ninth time in the last 11 years, qualified for a bowl game for the 10th time in the last 11 years, won a bowl game for just the eighth time in school history (beat Middle Tennessee, 24-6, in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl) and defeated Army for a series-record 12th-consecutive year. The 2013 squad is just the fifth in Navy history to win at least nine games in a season, beat Army and win a bowl game. The 1957, 1978, 2004 and 2009 teams also achieved that feat.

The offense led the nation in fewest turnovers (10), was second in rushing offense (325.4), third in fewest tackles for a loss allowed per game (3.62), sixth in passing yards per completion (15.1), sixth in third down conversions (.511), 11th in fourth down conversions (.679) and 12th in fewest fumbles lost (6).

Navy scored a touchdown on 45 percent (58-130) of its drives last year, which was the sixth best percentage in the country, and went three-and-out just 17 percent of the time (23 times in 135 possessions), which was tied for the fourth best percentage in the country.

Navy has won at least nine games five times in the last 10 years. Before the current streak, Navy had won nine or more games just five times in the previous 77 seasons.

Judge helped lead Navy to an 8-5 record in 2012 and a berth in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. Navy defeated Air Force, 28-21, in overtime and Army, 17-13, to win the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy.

The win over Army marked Navy's 11th consecutive victory over its biggest rivals. Other big wins for Navy in 2012 included a come-from-behind 31-30 victory over Indiana and wins over bowl bound East Carolina (56-28) and Central Michigan (31-13).

Navy was 5-7 in 2011 that included a series record 10th-straight victory over Army.

Navy played seven teams that finished with a winning record and six that went to bowl games. The Mids finished fourth in the nation in rushing offense, averaging 312.3 yards per game, and 15th in the nation in turnover margin (+0.8).

The Mids posted an impressive 9-4 record in 2010, defeated Army for a series-record ninth-consecutive time, defeated Notre Dame in consecutive seasons for only the third time in school history and appeared in a school-record eighth-consecutive bowl game. The Mids finished sixth in the country in rushing offense (284.8) and ninth in the country in passing efficiency (156.7).

The 2009 season was one to remember, as the Mids tied a school record for wins with 10, won a school-record seventh-consecutive Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, appeared in a school-record seventh-consecutive bowl game and ran its winning streak against the other two Service Academies to an amazing 15-straight games. The Mids capped the season off with a 35-13 rout of Missouri in the Texas Bowl.

The Mids posted an 8-5 record in 2008 and participated in the EagleBank Bowl. The Mids won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy thanks to a 33-27 victory over Air Force and a 34-0 win over Army. Other landmark wins during the 2008 season included a 24-17 victory over 16th-ranked Wake Forest, which was Navy's first win over a team ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 since 1985, as well as Navy's victory the previous week over Rutgers

Judge came to the Naval Academy from Harvard, where he served as the wide receivers coach.

He has spent time around some of the best football coaches in the country, including serving as the quality control coach with the New England Patriots in 2005 and 2006. He spent his first year in New England working with Eric Mangini as a defensive assistant and in 2006 he worked with Josh McDaniels as an offensive assistant.

Judge also spent four years as an intern on the Patriots staff during a time when they won three Super Bowl Championships.

Judge enjoyed an outstanding playing career as a triple-option quarterback at Springfield College (`05), where he was four-year letterwinner in both football and baseball.

He and his wife, Jennifer, reside in Annapolis with their son, Brecken, and daughter, Kinsley.
