Malzahn has won the annual Broyles Award given to the nation's top
college assistant coach.

Tigers, who will play for the national championship next month
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.

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.
