Rhett Lashlee leaving Auburn to be new offensive coordinator at UConn

Rhett Lashlee leaving Auburn to be new offensive coordinator at UConn

If it doesn't and Gus Malzahn decides to hire his good friend and former head coach of his newest quarterback - Jarrett Stidham - that would be a huge mistake.

It shouldn't even consider hiring the man Baylor fired last May amid domestic violence issues involving players he failed to address according to the Pepper Hamilton investigation as its new offensive coordinator to replace Rhett Lashlee, who left to take the same position at CT for significantly less money.

Lashlee's statement on leaving was posted on Auburn's official athletic website. The rushing offense surged to 318.9 yards per game, while the passing offense was effective as the Tigers completed 72.5 percent of their passes for 194.5 yards per game during that six-game stretch. Our offenses have achieved great success and he has been a big part of that. "I've known Rhett for two decades and he's a man of great character and integrity and this is another step towards his goal to become a head coach". "I want to wish he and his wife, Lauren, all the best in this new endeavor".

While Lashlee took over play calling duties from coach Gus Malazahn three weeks into the 2016 season, the assistant wanted to run his own offense - a sentiment he shared with multiple outlets Wednesday night and again Thursday.

House panel narrowly backs Mattis waiver
Senators are expected to ask Mr Mattis how he would grapple with Iran's influence in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and beyond. The Senate's Intelligence Committee will hold another confirmation hearing today for Rep.


Through Auburn's first three games of the season, the Tigers' offense struggled. "Randy is a proven victor and has done it here at UConn before and I'm thrilled to be a part of his staff". "At the end of the day, it was an opportunity to grow and develop as a coach".

Most of the names listed above have connections to either Auburn or Malzahn, in particular, as Crepea noted. All four of our kids were born here.

ESPN.comm also is reporting that neither Briles is being considered. He was a back-up quarterback for the Razorbacks before graduating in 2006. How Malzahn decides to fill that spot is of high interest for Auburn fans, coming off a season where the play-calling was a popular topic of conversation.
