Chuck Person Says AU Basketball Will be Fast Paced Like Malzahn’s No Huddle Offense

By on April 8th, 2014 in Basketball 3 Comments »

Chuck Person says he’s on the same page with Head Coach, Bruce Pearl. Flanked by his high school coach Earl Henderson and his Auburn coach Sonny Smith, the New Auburn Basketball Assistant promised at his hiring press conference to work hard to bring success to the Auburn program.

Chuck talks in the following video about his decision and about his desire to return Auburn Basketball to prominence. He sounds like a man who is already on the recruiting trail. “We’re going to run a no-huddle offense like Coach Malzahn does with the football team.”

“We’re going to get after it,” said Person. “We’re going to play fast, play smart, play tough. We’re going to rebound and defend. It’s going to be a fun game.We’re going to shoot three’s, we’re going to have fun. We may miss some of them, but we’re going to shoot them. So if any kids out there want to come to have fun, they need to come to Auburn (because) Auburn University is the place to be.”

    Next basketball season is going to be fun! It’s good to see Person bring this type of attitude to Auburn. It’s also good to see Coach Smith associated with Auburn again. I wonder if he remembers running me and my roommates out of his closed practice sessions back in the day?

      …..A lot of folks don’t know how loud Sonny could yell. You get that folksy, country voice on the radio, like he’s a sweet grandad, these days. At practice, he was on someone’s case at all times. I remember Charles Barkley got yelled at regularly, and before Charles, Earl Banks was one of his favorite targets.

      …..We used to head over to the Coliseum after calculus class and try to work our integrals during basketball practice.
