Survey: Best Mid/Low-Major Assistant

Last year, we started the tradition of surveying college assistant coaches around the country. We asked them to questions ranging from national coach of the year to whom the best assistants in the business are. This week, we'll release the results from a survey of over 40 coaches. Here are the results in the category of "Top Mid/Low-Major Assistant."

  • assistant coaches were asked to vote for two mid-to-low-major assistants in an effort to recognize the best assistants in the country at that level
