Auburn's Malzahn named Broyles Award winner

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Auburn offensive coordinator Gus
Malzahn has won the annual Broyles Award given to the nation's top
college assistant coach.

Malzahn is also the quarterbacks coach for the top-ranked
Tigers, who will play for the national championship next month
against Oregon.

Malzahn is the 15th winner of the award named in honor of former
Arkansas coach Frank Broyles. The 45-year-old Arkansas native began his college coaching career at Arkansas during the 2006 season after a successful high school coaching career in the state.

He followed that up by leading one of the nation's top offenses
at Tulsa for two seasons before being hired at Auburn prior to last
season. This season, the Tigers and quarterback Cam Newton led the Southeastern Conference in offense and scoring.
