“I am extremely thrilled to have Paul become a member of our staff again,” said UA head coach Bobby Petrino. “Paul has had several options with high level programs the past few days and I’m excited he made the decision to rejoin our program.

The Manning Award was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in honor of the college football career accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. It is the only quarterback award that takes the candidates’ bowl performances into consideration in its balloting.

The Manning Award will be recognizing its seventh winner this year. Matt Leinert of Southern California was the first winner in 2005.

Mallett, who was a finalist for the award last season, has completed 242 of 364 passes for 3,592 yards and 30 touchdowns. He is the fourth quarterback in SEC history to throw for 3,000 yards and 30 touchdowns in consecutive seasons and just the third to throw for more than 3,500 yards in back-to-back seasons.
