TCU Offensive Coordinator Garrett Riley Wins Broyles Award

TCU offensive coordinator Garrett Riley has won the 2022 Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation’s top assistant coach since 1996.

Garrett Riley, the younger brother of USC head coach Lincoln Riley, was the architect of one of the nation’s top-scoring and total offenses in 2022, helping lead the TCU Horned Frogs to their first playoff appearance in school history.


At 33 years old, Riley is among the award’s youngest winners in its storied history, and he joins his brother as a Broyles Award winner as Lincoln won the award back in 2015 when he served as the offensive coordinator at Oklahoma.

Riley beat out Todd Monken (Georgia OC), Ryan Walters (Illinois DC), Jesse Minter (Michigan DC), and Alex Golesh (Tennessee OC and new head coach at USF) to win the award and certainly earned the title as best assistant coach in the country.

Riley’s unit ranked 6th nationally in scoring (40.3 ppg), 16th in total offense (473 ypg), and was one of the most explosive offenses in the country under quarterback Max Duggan. In his first year under Riley’s tutelage, Duggan has grown into a Heisman finalist and is a major reason for the Horned Frogs’ success in 2022.
