In a late-night reveal on Sunday, Auburn confirmed that coach Gus Malzahn will return to calling offensive plays for the Tigers moving forward and announced that he has hired Kenny Dillingham as the new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Dillingham spent the last three seasons at Memphis, the last with the same title.
Malzahn was Auburn's offensive play caller his first three seasons at the helm of the program.
"Kenny is one of the rising stars in our profession, coaching two top 10 nationally ranked offenses the last two years," Malzahn said in a statement released at 11 p.m. ET. "Because of Kenny's energy, intelligence and genuine care for his players, he's been highly successful coaching quarterbacks and is an outstanding recruiter, while working closely with Mike Norvell in developing one of the nation's top offenses."
