SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah’s defensive coordinator and safeties coach Morgan Scalley and BYU’s passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Aaron Roderick have been nominated for the Broyles Award, awarded to the nation’s top assistant coach.

Scalley has spent his entire coaching career at Utah, starting in 2006 as an administrative assistant. In 2007 he was promoted to defensive graduate assistant, before being promoted yet again in 2008 to safeties coach.

In 2016, following the departure of Kalani Sitake, Scalley became the defensive coordinator. He spent the past three years in the position creating one of the more formidable defenses in the country.

Roderick has only been with BYU since 2018 after making the jump from Utah. He found success despite having to start three different quarterbacks throughout the course of this season, all due to injury.

This is both Scalley and Roderick’s first nomination for the Broyles Award.

Other notable nominations include Steve Sarkisian from Alabama and Jesse Gonzalez from Florida.

The nominees in this year’s class were selected from approximately 1,500 assistant coaches representing 130 Division One programs across the country.

According to the Broyles Award’s website, 45 percent of winners/finalists have become head coaches. Twenty percent of all current head coaches in Division One are Broyles Award Winners/Finalists.

A committee will select 15 semi-finalists, five finalists and one winner. The five finalists will be invited to Little Rock, Arkansas for a presentation where the winner will be announced on Tuesday, December 10th.
