Sources close to the Auburn coaching search are saying that former Auburn great Rodney Garner may be coming back home to coach at his alma mater.
Known as one of the best recruiters in college football, he is also one of the most widely respected Assistant coaches in the SEC. He presently is the Assistant Head Coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Georgia where he has worked for the past 15 years primarily responsible for the defensive line.
Several times in the past decade various schools have tried unsuccessfully to lure him away from Athens. It is appearing tonight that he may be on his way back to The Plains. If in fact, Garner does get on board with Gus Malzahn’s new staff, it will be a major hire for the new Auburn Head Coach. Stay tuned …
UPDATE: It has been confirmed that Coach Garner has been hired as the fifth coach to join Gus Malzahn’s staff at Auburn.
