Oregon’s offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham is among the semifinalists for the Broyles Award.
Dillingham is one of 15 semifinalists for the award, which is presented annually to the top assistant coach in college football. He is the third Oregon assistant coach ever to be named a semifinalist and first since former defensive coordinator Andy Avalos in 2019. Gary Crowton (2005) is the only UO coach ever to be named a Broyles Award finalist.
In its first season under Dillingham, No. 10 Oregon (9-2, 7-1 Pac-12) ranks in the top 20 nationally in total offense (511.2 yards per game, 3rd), scoring (40.2 points, 4th), rushing (222.9 ypg., 12th) and passing (288.3 ypg., 18th). UO and Ohio State are the only teams in the top 20 nationally in both rushing and passing offense.
A 43-member selection committee of former head coaches, broadcasters and a committee representing the FWAA will select five finalists and the winner, who will be named during a luncheon on Dec. 6 in Little Rock, Ark.
Previous winners are not eligible to be nominated for three seasons. The 2021 Broyles Award winner was then-Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis, now at Miami.
