The Broyles Award

The Broyles Award was created in 1996 by David Bazzel to promote the legacy of Coach Frank Broyles
and his remarkable track record of selecting, training and developing some of football’s greatest
assistant coaches. The Broyles Award was the first national award to originate from the state of
Arkansas and the first assistant coach of the year award for any sport in the world. The Broyles Award
continues to be the most coveted award by college football’s top assistants.
