AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn football’s new offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey is moving back to his comfort zone after a historically bad performance in a 14-6 loss to Clemson last Saturday.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced Tuesday morning Lindsey will coach from the press box moving forward. Offensive line coach Herb Hand will move from the box to the field on game days.
Malzahn said Lindsey introduced the idea of coaching from the box, which he did some last season at Arizona State. Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele also leads his unit from the box.
“This is Chip’s deal,” Malzahn said. “He’ll do a great job moving forward.”
Malzahn said the move comes down to Lindsey’s comfort level. The Tigers had 15 yards of total offense in the second half against Clemson and allowed 11 sacks throughout the game.
