LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – The offensive coordinator for the playoff-bound Oklahoma Sooners is this year’s winner of the Broyles Award.

The Rotary Club of Little Rock, Arkansas, on Tuesday named Lincoln Riley as the top assistant coach in college football. The award is named after former Arkansas coach and athletic director Frank Broyles, who trained a number of assistants who went on to lead their own successful programs as head coaches.

Oklahoma is averaging more than 45 points a game and will play in a national semifinal against No. 1 Clemson on Dec. 31.
