Michigan RB Kurt Taylor transferring from Wolverines – CollegeFootballTalk

The calendar turning to November can mean a lot of things in college football but the time-honored tradition of releasing lists of nominees for various awards is as sure of a thing as the sun rising and setting.

One of these lists came out on Wednesday as The Frank & Barbara Broyles Foundation announced the 53 (yep) nominees for the 2018 Broyles Award, which is given to the top assistant coach in the country. Winners of the award from the past five seasons are not eligible to win the honor again, which explains the absence of those such as Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables and last year’s winner, Tony Elliott.
