The infamous 17-16 Auburn win over second-ranked Alabama, commonly known as “Punt Bama Punt”

I got to see Gene Chizik speak at the Little Rock Touchdown Club on Sept 30, 2013 and he did a great job. He probably took this speaking engagement because of his respect for the Broyles Award which he won in Little Rock in 2004. So many winners of that award have gone on to become head coaches and do great things. David Cutcliffe was the 2012 ACC Coach of the year and he won the award in 1998 the year Tennessee won the national title. Gus Malzahn won it when he was at Auburn in 2010 when the Tigers won the national title and now he is the head coach at Auburn. All the details are below about the Broyles Award winners!!!

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 Arkansas men’s athletic director Frank Broyles.[1] The award is presented in Little Rock, Arkansas at the Downtown Rotary Club.

Award

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 former head coaches. The five finalists meet in Little Rock, Arkansas, where each is presented with a 1,000 dollar check, as well as a set of golf clubs and personalized golf bag. The winner received 2,500 dollars, a watch, the Broyles Award Jacket custom-made by Tom James, as well as the trophy, valued at around 5,000 dollars.

Trophy

The Broyles Award Trophy, made out of solid bronze, depicts Broyles (kneeling) and longtime University of Arkansas assistant coach Wilson Matthews (standing), watching over a Razorback football game or practice.

In the prestigious history of college football, there are few coaches whose efforts have forever impacted the game. Bear Bryant, Knute Rockne, Frank Leahy and Eddie Robinson have set the standard for victories and championships on the gridiron. However, when it comes to selecting, developing and producing great assistant coaches, the legacy of Frank Broyles stands alone.
