FRANK BROYLES AWARD WINNERS
In 1996, the Broyles Award was established to recognize some of the most dedicated, hardest working people in America...the college football assistant coach.
John Franklin "Frank" Broyles (born December 26, 1924 in Decatur, Ga.) is a former All-American college football player, coach, broadcaster, athletic director for the University of Arkansas. After a 50-plus year career, he continues to serve the University of Arkansas and is an icon representing the entire state. Broyles retired from his athletic director position at Arkansas on Dec. 31, 2007. Over thirty of his former players have also become college or professional football coaches. Broyles is known for producing high quality coaches and the prestigious Broyles Award, the annual award for best assistant coach, is named after him. Barry Switzer, Johnny Majors, Joe Gibbs and Jimmy Johnson all served under Broyles and have combined to win five collegiate national championships and six Super Bowls. Broyles' assistants have won more than 40 conference titles. In 1983, Broyles was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
