Impressive. A 250K pay cut, too? I knew this state has a future in tourism.
I hope we put some unreasonable buyout in his contract.
I know what I'm doing with mine.
My first reaction is to scratch my head at that comment.
But here's the thing: imagine what happens when our players are actually properly coached?
We're about to see what we REALLY have on our shelves, now that the adults are in charge...
I wish i could like this 50 times
If they followed this with randomly flipping Tarik Black from Michigan, I would weep inconsolably for five months straight.
But seriously, Dave Benedict needs to do a Gronk-spike and take a bow for this one, and I'm not even a Pats fan.
AU Today: Rhett Lashlee leaving Auburn to become offensive coordinator at UConn
>>“It’s probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve made, definitely in my professional career,” Lashlee told Auburn's official athletics website. “The opportunity to work for Randy Edsall, who has had success at a high level and success at UConn, and just have the opportunity to run the offense, that’s something he’s given me to do. I’m grateful for that."<<
No leash on the offense. Woooooooooooo!
nobody tell TDH Auburn's run/pass ratio
I seriously hope our Horde can cover this story with excellence because this is still a head scratcher to me. Huge pay cut and he already was running a SEC offense.
This should be good reading.
didn't see this one coming.
I beg your pardon.
David Benedict is the most interesting man in the world! Magic Man!
Ahh, now the move makes more sense. There was some obvious tension between Lashlee and Malzahn and the young buck wanted a chance to get out from under the older man's shadow and show what he could do on his own. A familiar story. And AD Dave must have known about it before heading to UConn. He just kept it in his back pocket, just in case. Still, it's a gutsy move for Lashlee and his young family taking the $250k haircut. But with young kids he maybe figured, if not now, when would be a better time to take the chance?
Awesome, now its time to get to work we need to finally score.
In Offensive Coordinator parlance
Cummings to Verducci to Corley ... to Lashlee ...
is like going from Taurus to Sentra to Elantra ... to Mazerati
Trying to temper expectations, but AD Dave and Head Coach Randy may have hit a home run with this choice.
This is exactly what I thought of when this hire was announced. Love it!
DC Bob Diaco.
Anyone care about the Corey Edsall hire now???? Just saying....
Before I get really, REALLY excited...is this #fakenews?
Competent coaching. Some growing pains at first but wow a great move. Lets get some quality blockers out there and move the chains boyz!!!
I didn't think we had any chance at Lashlee, this is a great surprise!
He is a bit run heavy, but the optics of this hire are mind blowing!!
Big day for the good guys!!
LOL, he would actually probably do a good job in that spot, provided they gave him a muzzle, and as a bonus we wouldn't have to pay him after his crazy buyout! I crack myself up, sometimes.
