Mizzou Football defensive coordinator Dave Steckel has been named a finalist for the 2014 Broyles Award.
The award was established in 1996 to recognize the nation’s best assistant coach. With the Mizzou Football defense holding their opponents to the 13th least points total in the nation, Steckel’s efforts are being recognized with the nod.

The winner of the 2014 Broyles Award will be announced on Tuesday, December 9 at 11:30 a.m. CT in Little Rock, Arkansas.
