Maybe the power struggle wasn’t so bad after all?
ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reported on Saturday that Auburn will fill its open offensive coordinator job with Chip Lindsey, who currently works with Arizona State.
Lindsey previously worked with Auburn during their run to the national title game in 2013. Lindsey then moved on the offensive coordinator position at Southern Miss before taking that Arizona State job last season.
Lindsey’s hire comes after a reported power struggle in Auburn, where head coach Gus Malzahn and donors within the program allegedly weren’t seeing eye-to-eye on a potential coaching hire. However, Lindsey is a Malzahn guy, so if those power struggle reports are true, then Malzahn won out.
