glad to have em!
I'm liking me some Coach Chuckie Cheese!
GREAT JOB PM
I like these guys, who they are and what they stand for. I sense unity, loyalty, and mutual respect that clearly was lost among the prior staff. I think it bodes well. I trust they help lead auburn back from the abyss.
It's a new day in Auburn football!
What a refreshing approach all these guys bring. Don't think we would have gotten the same with CBP!
As Auburn People I feel we can be very proud of these coaches and of the care Gus M gave to selecting his new staff. I think we will see some very good things from this group.

lol...awesome. Can't wait to see their results on the field
Great introduction to the coaches. Thanks.
If these guys (coaches) have 3/4 as much energy as CGM, I sure do hope the players have been practicing staying awake and watching film. It will not surprise me to see these coaches coaching and teaching well into the dark hours. Hard work, long hours, early mornings, all add up to success. After watching what transpired at ASU last year I am excited. It may not be an instant transformation, but once all the pieces are in place and teaching begins, it will definitely be a pleasure to watch both the offense and defense in action. JMO All that is left is a big War Damn Eagle.
And we are blessed to have them all on staff @ AU!
Thank you Phillip for the blessing of great interviews/article to read/watch!!! Wow that article has me even more excited for whats-to-come! =)
Thanks for the videos Phillip !
Thanks, it was very exciting to listen to these guys talk about their reasons for being at Auburn. The all seem to have a common theme. It is all about Gus's faith and desire to develop the players into good young men. Plus they think Gus is a visionary and will be on the cutting edge of finding new ways to make an offense and a defense effective. I see the defense just a visionary as the offense and will allow better changes for the different styles of offense. Like this year we played well against traditional play action run teams but really stuggled with hurry up and spread it out. Thus even Alabama ran a HUNH offense against us. It will be great to have a defense that compliments Guy's offense and not have to slow down the offense because of a defense that cannot handle the fast pace of today's game.
"There's no doubt, we're going up."
I've said it before and I'll say it again... When you have this many coaches of this caliber that want to work for Gus, well... I think that tells you everything you need to know right there.
War Eagle! Can't wait for A-day!
