How to, if possible, extract the coefficient of friction in the results?

I am interested in knowing the coefficient of friction for my models in Simulation CFD 2014. Is it possible to extract this from the results?

Best regards

Do you mean skin friction coefficient?

Yes, exactly. My guess is that there is no direct way to get these results other than having to do my own math using the wall shear stress?

I would think so yes, I haven't spotted anything that directly gives you this. I guess the post processing is your only option, unless Autodesk personnel suggest a better way...
