Post SEC coordinator shuffle

Tuesday December 11, 2007

South Carolina defensive coordinator Tyrone Nix is heading back to Mississippi to join Houston Nutt’s staff in Oxford. Nix had a long stint at Southern Miss and was briefly considered for their vacancy.

Spurrier’s choice for a replacement will be worth watching, but this news could also have an impact on the future of Jasper Brinkley. The standout Gamecock linebacker has said that he will likely return next season, but a change in defensive system might cause him to reconsider.

Auburn is looking for a new offensive coordinator after Al Borges resigned. Borges had success with an offense that mixed play-action and bootlegs in with a heavy dose of the running game, but the formula had become less effective.

If you believe the rumors, Auburn is looking at Troy assistant Tony Franklin in order to bring a little spread flavor to the Plains.
