FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) —Arkansas Razorback legend Frank Broyles, 92, is resting at home after suffering a stroke.

In 1996, the Broyles Award was established to recognize the best college football assistant coach. Over the years, the award has done just that.

The five finalists meet in Little Rock where one is presented with the award.
