COLLEGE FOOTBALL ASSISTANT COACH OF THE YEAR
The Broyles Award was established in 1996 by Frank Broyles and David Bazzel to recognize some of the most dedicated, hardest-working people in America – college football assistant coaches.
The Broyles Award quickly became synonymous with excellence in collegiate coaching, as many finalists and recipients of the Broyles Award have gone on to become head coaches at collegiate and professional levels.
