Chip Out As AU OC (thread title updated)

Recommended Posts



Auburn will have a different offensive coordinator next season.

Chip Lindsey will not return as the Tigers' offensive coordinator and is expected to land another job in the near future, sources told AL.com.

Kansas has been mentioned as a possible landing spot for Lindsey, who would join Les Miles’ new staff. He has also reportedly interviewed for the Tennessee OC job along with former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze.

Lindsey was recruiting for Auburn as recently as this past weekend when he attended Pinson Valley’s playoff game along with defensive line coach Rodney Garner.

Lindsey’s decision to leave Auburn comes in the wake of the team’s 52-21 loss to Alabama that dropped the Tigers to 7-5 on the year and 3-5 in SEC play, marking the second season that Auburn has posted a sub-.500 record in SEC play during Gus Malzahn’s tenure. 

The Tigers' offense trudged through the regular-season slate this year, reaching new statistical lows in the Gus Malzahn era while displaying inconsistent play throughout the year.

The team’s offense finished the regular season ranked 67th nationally in rushing (164.1 yards per game), 88th in passing (209.5), 75th in passing efficiency (131.19), 71st in scoring (28.3 points per game) and 102nd nationally on third downs (35.8 percent).

I really hope he goes somewhere and lights it up.

I feel like Ben Affleck's character in Good Will Hunting, showing up at Matt Damon's door every morning hoping he won't be there to answer it but sad when it finally happens.  Thanks, Chip. You'v

Wish nothing but the best to Chip, sorry he had to put this mark on his resume and be lied to by an egotistical dufus.

What is the chances that Gus doubles down and names himself as OC and then goes and finds someone as a QB coach? 

Problem there is Gus hasn't let an offense coach do real work with the QBs before. Hard to see him letting go of that control now.
