Gus Malzahn wins 2010 Broyles Award

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.
