Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi was named the winner of the Broyles Award, given annually to the top assistant coach in college football. Narduzzi led a Spartans defense that ended the regular season topping the country in total and rushing defense, while ranking fourth in scoring defense. Michigan State stands at 12-1 after winning the Big Ten Football Championship Game and is headed to the Rose Bowl Game for the first time since the 1987 season. The Broyles Award honors the top assistant college football coach in America and was established in 1996 to honor legendary Arkansas Head Coach Frank Broyles. Coach Broyles had a track record of producing some of the most successful assistant coaches in college football history. Big Ten assistant coaches have claimed the Broyles Award on two previous occasions - Michigan defensive coordinator Jim Herrmann in 1997 and Ohio State defensive coordinator Jim Heacock in 2007.
