LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Auburn offensive coordinator Gus
Malzahn and TCU defensive coordinator Dick Bumpas highlight the
list of finalists for the Broyles Award as best assistant coach.
Offensive coordinators Paul Chryst of Wisconsin, Dana Holgorsen
of Oklahoma State and Greg Roman of Stanford are also finalists.
Under Bumpas, the Horned Frogs have the best defense in the
nation, allowing 215 yards per game. Auburn is undefeated and atop
the BCS standings in line for a chance at the national title under
Malzahn and quarterback Cam Newton.
The award will be presented Dec. 6 in Little Rock. Last year's
winner was Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart.
