Auburn has had several personnel changes since the end of the 2019 season.

There are two new offensive coaches, a new defensive assistant and a new recruiting coordinator has been named.

And with those changes come new recruiting areas.

Biggest takeaway from this is that we finally have a dedicated "Buck" coach. I've been wanting this forever.

Coach Steele had been mostly doing it. What I’m hearing is the reason why Pogue is there now is because McGriff wants the corners and safeties by himself.

I thought Pogue’s specialty was south Alabama?

He has relationships all over the state. His strongest area though is the Montgomery area which is his area because he coached at Carver. The reason he is helping Coach Steele with Lee Hunter at Blount is because he is long time and very good friends with Blount’s head coach.

Further to E's response, he grew up in Mobile, played and coached in the Gump, was director of high school relations for Auburn in 2013, and coached at Troy from 2014-18. That dude has lived and breathed football all over the state for 25+ years. 

(This is me being all "rah rah great hire".)
