Auburn OC Lashlee leaving SEC for UConn gig

Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee is heading to the AAC, where he will step into the same role at UConn under new head coach Randy Edsall.

Greg Ostendorf ESPN Staff Writer 

Rhett Lashlee has been Gus Malzahn's OC all five seasons that Malzahn has been a college coach. But with Lashlee taking the same position at UConn, the marriage is over. "This is a great opportunity for Rhett to implement and run his own offense," Malzahn said. "This is another step towards his goal to become a head coach."

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

With Rhett Lashlee moving to UConn, Auburn could target Arizona State's Chip Lindsey for its offensive coordinator vacancy. Lindsey has extensive ties to the Southeast and had been OC at Southern Miss before moving to Arizona State last year. NC State offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz ahas ties to Gus Malzahn and could be another option for Auburn.

Alabama, Florida State lead Way-Too-Early 2017 Top 25

Alabama loses the bulk of its menacing defense, but there's plenty of talent waiting in the wings. Expect Florida State to return to the ACC summit, but Michigan might slide in the Big Ten.

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

Auburn was the only team to play both Alabama and Clemson this season, and Gus Malzahn likes the Tigers in this game. "Clemson has the best player on the field with Deshaun Watson, and I think changing offensive coordinators the week before the game is going to hurt Alabama. Both teams are great, and this is the best Alabama defense I've seen, but I think Clemson is going to win it."

Auburn is adding NFL and collegiate coaching veteran Greg Brown to its staff as defensive backs coach. Brown, 59, has coached three Thorpe Award winners during his career. He replaces Wesley McGriff, who left to take the defensive coordinator's job at Ole Miss. Brown was the cornerbacks coach at Missouri last season and worked with current Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele at Alabama in 2013. Brown spent 12 years in the NFL coaching the secondary with five different franchises.
