Mike Judge is entering his sixth year at the Naval Academy coaching the fullbacks.
Navy has compiled a record of 40-25 (.615) in Judge's tenure, beating Army all five times, earning four bowl bids, winning three Commander-In-Chief's Trophies and beating Notre Dame twice.
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.
