TCU's Riley wins Broyles Award as college football's top assistant coach
TCU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Garrett Riley won the 2022 Broyles Award recognizing the nation's top assistant coach.
Riley joined the Horned Frogs in December 2021 after two seasons at SMU. TCU went 12-1 this season, thanks in large part to Riley's offense averaging 473 yards and 40.3 points per game.
The Horned Frogs finished the season as the No. 3-ranked team and will compete in the College Football Playoff for the first time in school history.
Quarterback Max Duggan led the team's passing attack and threw for 3,321 yards, 30 touchdowns, and four interceptions en route to being named a Heisman Trophy finalist. Wide receiver Quentin Johnston, who is expected to be a high selection in the 2023 NFL Draft should he declare, paced the team in receiving with 53 receptions, 903 yards, and five touchdowns.
Riley's ground attack totaled 2,600 yards, with 1,342 of those coming from lead running back Kendre Miller, who also scored 17 rushing touchdowns.
Riley is the brother of USC head coach Lincoln Riley, who won the Broyles Award in 2015 with Oklahoma.
Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken, Illinois defensive coordinator Ryan Walters, Michigan defensive coordinator Jesse Minter, and Tennessee offensive coordinator Alex Golesh were the other finalists for the award this year.
