Auburn football: A bye week visit with the Tigers’ coordinators

Auburn football is the No. 1 topic in the War Eagle Wakeup every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across the Tigers’ sports world. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Auburn football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Coordinators make surprise visits with media

Local Auburn media were surprised on Tuesday night with visits from defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey.

The two coaches had a lot of positive things to say after Auburn’s win at Arkansas. Here are some of the stat highlights from the trip to Fayetteville:

Lindsey touched on the improvements Auburn’s offense has made and the potential for success in the coming weeks with a healthy backfield. He also complimented quarterback Jarrett Stidham’s leadership and work ethic, first and foremost.

Steele talked about the importance of the off week for injured defensive players (Auburn’s secondary has been so thin at times that safety Stephen Roberts stepped in and played some corner). The veteran coach also praised some of his younger standouts, as well as athletes who’ve been playing while somewhat injured.

In other Auburn football news:


Aly Tetzloff was named the SEC swimmer of the Week on Tuesday after she won each of her three individual events during a dual meet against No. 5 Texas A&M.

The junior won the 100 back, 100 fly and 200 IM. Her 100 fly time (53.16) is currently the fifth fastest in the country and second in the conference.
