HOUSTON, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor football head coach Jim Grobe was one of 23 coaches tabbed to the watch list for the 2016 Bryant Coach of the Year Award recently.

The 31st annual American Heart Association Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards presented by Marathon Oil Corporation seek to recognize excellence in college football coaching while raising funds to fight heart disease and stroke.

With Grobe at the helm, Baylor has risen to a ranking of No. 9 in the AP Top 25 and No. 8 in the Amway Coaches Poll. The Bears are 6-0 for the fourth-straight year – a program first and the only FBS team to achieve that feat – and 3-0 in conference play for a fourth-straight year as well.

Grobe’s squad is top-20 in the country in scoring offense (43.7, 9th), total offense (549.2, 5th), scoring defense (17.2, 12th) and total defense (320.3, 19th). 

In December, five to 10 finalists for the honor will be announced. Finalists will attend an awards banquet Jan. 11, 2017, at the Toyota Center, where the winner will be announced live. The Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year Award is the only college coaching honor determined after all bowl games are concluded and is voted on by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association.

After an off-week, Baylor will play at Texas at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 29. That game will be nationally televised by ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.
