After leading the Alabama Crimson Tide offense to a great 2017 season and a national championship, OC Brian Daboll left for the NFL.

Since then, he’s been the offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills, who will face the Kansas City Chiefs for a spot in the Super Bowl this coming Sunday.

Daboll has helped QB Josh Allen develop into one of the more dynamic quarterbacks in the league, and for that, he has earned a top award.

The Pro Football Writers of America announced on Thursday that Daboll had been named the NFL Assistant Coach of the Year.

Daboll was linked to the Los Angeles Chargers’ head coaching opening this offseason, but the Chargers recently hired Brandon Staley instead.

Will Daboll soon get a head coaching gig? It seems he’s on that path.
