Alabama offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is one particular of 56 nominees for the 2017 Broyles Award, it was announced Wednesday. The award honors Tj Yeldon College Football Jerseys
football’s top rated assistant.
In his first season in Tuscaloosa -- and on a college sideline -- the former NFL assistant has helped the Crimson Tide field one of several SEC’s greatest offenses. Alabama leads the league in scoring (40.9 points per game) and is second in total offense (477.4 yards per game) and rushing offense (278.44 yards per game). UA has scored in each quarter this year.
Alabama has trailed for any total of two minutes and 26 seconds this season. The Tide’s 66 points scored in its 66-3 win more than Ole Miss on Sept. 30 marked the highest point total for UA due to the fact it won by the same score at Vanderbilt on Sept. 29, 1979. Alabama’s 677 yards of total offense against Vanderbilt and 613 total yards against Ole Miss marks the first time in school history the Tide has surpassed the 600-yard mark in back-to-back games.
The former New England Patriots tight
ends coach is a single of eight assistant coaches from the SEC on the list. Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt was a finalist in 2016.
A selection committee of former head coaches, together with a committee representing the Football Writers Association of America will choose 15 semi-finalists and five finalists from the list of nominees and an all round winner. Those finalists will be invited to travel to Little Rock, Ark., exactly where the 2017 Broyles Award winner will probably be announced on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
