SEC coaches All-SEC team announced

By Edward Aschoff

The 2012 All-SEC coaches' team was announced on Tuesday, and Alabama was well represented.

The SEC champions led the league with eight members, including six on the first team. Florida was second with seven, while Georgia and Tennessee had six each.

Ten SEC schools had a member on the first team. Alabama led with six, while Florida had five and Texas A&M with four. LSU, South Carolina and Texas A&M had five apiece among the two first- and second-teams, while Mississippi State was next with four.

Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Georgia running back Todd Gurley were the only freshmen to make the All-SEC team. Manziel was the only newcomer to make the first team. Florida's Mike Gillislee and Alabama's Eddie Lacy shared the first-team running back spots, despite Gurley finishing the year as the SEC's top rusher (1,260 yards).

Ole Miss was the only team not represented. Not even wide receiver Donte Moncrief made the cut, despite catching 60 passes and ranking fifth in the SEC with 948 yards. Hed was second in the league with 10 receiving touchdowns. Moncrief was left off the Associated Press All-SEC team as well.
