ASU's Kent Riddle is a nominee for the Broyles Award

JONESBORO (KAIT) - The Broyles Award honors the top assistant coach in college football. For the 2nd straight year, a ASU coach is on the Broyles radar.

Kent Riddle is one of 40 nominees. He's one of two from the Sun Belt to get Broyles nods. Riddle was hired in December as the ASU assistant coach, tight ends coach, and special teams coordinator. Under his leadership, the Red Wolves special teams unit is arguably the best this season in the conference. J.D. McKissic leads the nation in kickoff returns, and they've blocked 3 kicks or punts in the last 4 games.

Former A-State assistant Rhett Lashlee is a Broyles nominee. Like at ASU, he's served as Auburn's offensive coordinator.
