MIAMI, Fla. -- Three coaches who died during the Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland will be recognized during the ESPY Awards on July 18.
Coaches Aaron Feis, Scott Beigel and Chris Hixon will be awarded the Best Coach Award posthumously, ESPN announced Wednesday. The coaches' family members will be at the ceremony to received the awards.
It's a break in tradition for the ESPYs. The Best Coach Award typically recognizes coaches strictly for their work on the field.
