Earlier Saturday, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced he was hiring Arizona State offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey to be the Tigers’ offensive coordinator, replacing the recently departed Rhett Lashlee. This will be Lindsey’s second stint on Malzahn’s staff, as he served as an offensive analyst during Auburn’s 2013 run to the national championship game. Lindsey took to Twitter to announce his excitement about rejoining the Auburn family:

Prior to his stint at Arizona State, Lindsey was the offensive coordinator at Southern Miss, where his offense broke several single-season records. Lindsey was a very successful high school coach in Alabama at Colbert Heights and Spain Park high schools.
