Posted on Tue, Jan 16, 2007 at 1:08 PM

Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster, a four-time nominee for the Frank Broyles Award for best assistant coach in college football, took home the award Tuesday in Little Rock.

Officials from The Rotary Club of Little Rock presented Foster with the 11th Annual Frank Broyles Award during a luncheon at the Doubletree Hotel.

Foster, 47, has produced the nation's No.1 defense in back-to-back seasons and helping the Hokies (10-3) to their third consecutive 10-win season, making them the third team to win 10 games in each of the past three seasons. He's been at Virginia Tech for 20 seasons. He was also nominated for the Broyles Award in 1999, 2001 and 2005. In winning the ward, Foster received a $2,500 check and a 60-pound cast bronze stature. All five finalists, including Arkansas defensive coordinator Reggie Herring, receved $1,000 and a set of Nike golf clubs and bag, as well as gifts for spouses.

The other Broyles Award finalists were Ohio State passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Joe Daniels; former Louisville offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Paul Petrino, and Oklahoma associate head coach, defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Brent Venables.
