Mike Bobo finalist for Broyles Award

The former Georgia quarterback has helped the Bulldogs to a No. 3 ranking.

Georgia Bulldogs offensive coordinator Mike Bobo is a finalist for the Broyles Award, which goes to the top assistant coach in college football, according to Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald.

Bobo has guided Georgia's offense to 456 points and 62 touchdowns this year. Georgia is the No. 3 team in the country and boasts an 11-1 overall record.

Bobo, 38, has spent six seasons as the team's offensive coordinator. On top of his 12 years on Mark Richt's staff, he was also a quarterback at Georgia.

One of his biggest challenges in that span will be this Saturday when the Bulldogs play No. 2 Alabama in the SEC Championship game. Georgia is 1-1 this season against ranked teams.

"We're doing a nice job right now," Bobo said of his offense. "Balance is the No. 1 thing. I think Aaron (Murray) being extremely accurate, able to throw the ball on first down and complete a high percentage of passes and then we've got guys that can make big plays on runs, on passes. Just the number of big plays we've had this year has just helped our offense tremendously. It's hard to drive the ball, eight, nine plays on any defense."

Other finalists for the Broyles Award are Florida defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Notre Dame defensive coordinator Bob Diaco, Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason and Texas A&M offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury.

A winner will be announced Monday.
