The Broyles Award, given to the nation’s top football assistant coach, will reside in Clemson for the second straight year.
Tigers Co-Offensive Coordinator Tony Elliott received the award Tuesday, one year after Clemson Defensive Coordinator Brent Venables won the award last year.
Elliott beat out four other finalists for the award, including former Clemson and current Auburn Defensive Coordinator Kevin Steele.
The Tigers averaged in the Top 25 in scoring offense and total offense, but Elliott earns more credit for doing so with a first-year starting quarterback in Kelly Bryant.
As a recipient of the award, he’s precluded from winning it again for the next five seasons.
Elliott talked to SportsTalk on Tuesday night to discuss winning the award, and what has been behind Clemson’s run to a third straight College Football Playoff appearance:
