ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia’s John & Alice Sands Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach Mike Bobo has been named one of five finalists for the Broyles Award given to college football’s top assistant coach, according to an announcement from the Frank & Barbara Broyles Foundation Monday.

The four other finalists for the Broyles Award are: Iowa defensive coordinator/secondary coach Phil Parker, LSU offensive coordinator/tight ends coach Mike Denbrock, Michigan offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Sherrone Moore and Oregon offensive coordinator Will Stein.

Bobo was also a 2012 finalist for the Broyles Award during his first stint back at Georgia. Former Bulldog Offensive Coordinator and current Baltimore Raven Offensive Coordinator Todd Monken was a 2022 Broyles finalist. In addition, former Georgia Defensive Coordinator and current Oregon head coach Dan Lanning was a 2019 and 2021 finalist. Georgia head coach Kirby Smart won the 2009 honor and was a finalist in 2015 while at Alabama.
