Clemson Co-Offensive Coordinator Tony Elliott has been named winner of the Broyles Award for the most outstanding assistant coach in college football. Elliot is the second consecutive Clemson assistant to win the prestigious award, as last season Defensive Coordinator Brent Venables won it. Clemson is the first program in history to have to coaches win the award in consecutive seasons.

Elliott beat out finalists Jim Leonhard (DC, Wisconsin), Bill Bedenbaugh (Co-OC, Oklahoma), Troy Walters (OC, UCF), and former Clemson assistant Kevin Steele (DC, Auburn).
