AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn football’s coaching staff will get a blast from the past in 2017.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has added former Tigers offensive coordinator Al Borges to his staff as an offensive analyst, a school spokesperson confirmed to SEC Country. The news was first reported by Chris Low of ESPN on Wednesday afternoon.
Borges was Auburn’s offensive coordinator from 2004 to 2007. In his first season with the program, Auburn went a perfect 13-0 with the star backfield of quarterback Jason Campbell, running back Carnell “Cadillac” Williams and running back Ronnie Brown.
Following his days of running the “Gulf Coast offense” at Auburn, Borges worked as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at San Diego State and Michigan under Brady Hoke.
Borges spent the last two seasons in the same role at San Jose State. His Spartans offense put up 406 yards on the Tigers during a visit to Jordan-Hare Stadium in 2015.
