Gus Malzahn will have to reload even more on his support staff, as veteran coach Al Borges is leaving Auburn football’s staff after one season for another coordinator job.
Borges has been announced as the new offensive coordinator at Texas-San Antonio. Borges, who was Auburn’s offensive coordinator from 2004 to 2007, spent the 2017 season as an offensive analyst for the Tigers. The move was first reported by Bruce Feldman:
SOURCE: #UTSA is expected to hire #Auburn staffer Al Borges as its new offensive coordinator. Borges is a two-time Broyles award finalist and was in the mix for some NFL coaching opportunities this winter.

Last season was Borges’ first outside of an offensive coordinator role since 1985. He spent time calling plays and coaching quarterbacks at a variety of schools, including Oregon, UCLA, California, Indiana, Michigan, San Diego State and San Jose State.
Auburn will now have to replace both of its analysts from the 2017 season on the offensive side of the ball. Earlier this week, Brian Blackmon became the tight ends coach at Troy.
Malzahn is set to meet with the media Friday morning, following the introduction of new athletics director Allen Greene.
