- Broyles Award
The Broyles Award is an annual award given to honor the best assistant coach in college football. First awarded in
1996, it was named after former University of Arkansasmen's athletic director Frank Broyles. [Broyles has no authority over Arkansas women's athletics. The school has had a completely separate women's athletics department since 1971, before Broyles took over the men's department.] The award is presented in Little Rock, Arkansasat the Downtown Rotary Club.
Every year, 1,500 assistant coaches representing all 117 Division One college football programs vote on their peers in the world of college football, and the five Broyles Award finalists are chosen by the tally of these ballots. Each head coach can nominate one assistant coach from his staff. All nominations are reviewed by a selection committee composed of some of college football's finest former head coaches. The five finalists meet in
Little Rock, Arkansas, where each are presented with a 1,000 dollar check, as well as a set of golf clubs and personalized golf bag. The award received 2,500 dollars, as well as the trophy, valued at around 5,000 dollars.
