Blog – MSU’s Collins nominated for Broyles Award

Mississippi State defensive coordinator Geoff Collins is among the nominees for the 2014 Broyles Award.

The award is given to the top assistant college football coach.

Collins is one of four Southeastern Conference assistant coaches to make the list. Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, Arkansas defensive coordinator Robb Smith, Missouri defensive coordinator Dave Steckel and Ole Miss defensive coordinator Dave Wommack join Collins on the list.

In his second year as the Bulldog defensive coordinator, Collins helped the Bulldog defense only allow 19.4 points per game. MSU also collected 36 sacks, the most in head coach Dan Mullen’s six-year tenure.
