New York, NY (Sports Network) - San Jose Earthquakes coach Frank Yallop was named the 2012 MLS Coach of the Year on Tuesday.

Yallop led the Earthquakes to a 19-6-9 record, the best in the league, to earn the second Supporters' Shield in club history. San Jose was 14th overall last season.

"This is a great individual honour," Yallop said. "I would like to thank my players and staff for all the hard work and dedication this season. Without them, this could not have been possible."

San Jose totaled 66 points, just two behind the league record of 68 set by the Los Angeles Galaxy in 1998. The Earthquakes were 8-0-1 combined against Real Salt Lake, Seattle Sounders FC and L.A. - their top three foes in the Western Conference.

Yallop finished ahead of D.C. United coach Ben Olsen and Sporting Kansas City coach Peter Vermes in the final voting. Yallop also won the award in 2001 with the San Jose Earthquakes.

The award was voted on by media, MLS players and MLS club management based on regular season performance.
