Tony Elliott with Clemson took home the 2017 Broyles Award, honoring college football's top assistant coaches.

The award was established by David Bazzel in 1996 to recognize Coach Frank Broyles’ legacy of selecting and developing great assistants during his time as head coach at Arkansas. Coach Broyles passed away earlier in 2017 at the age of 92. The award has grown to be one of the most respected and prestigious awards in college football.

Elliott, co-offensive coordinator and running backs coach at Clemson, and four other finalists were invited to the awards ceremony Tuesday at the Marriott Hotel. The other finalists included Kevin Steele, defensive coordinator at Auburn; Bill Bedenbaugh, offensive coordinator, offensive line at Oklahoma; Troy Walters, offensive coordinator at UCF; and Jim Leonhard, defensive coordinator at Wisconsin.

This year marked the second time the Frank & Barbara Broyles Foundation has presented the award. Proceeds support the mission of the Broyles Foundation - to provide education, support, and resources to Alzheimer's caregivers.
