Would be a perfect hire for Auburn. Great friend of mine since I was in the 9th grade. He and i grew up together and now our kids go to school together. He coached my son in AAU basketball for 4 years. Unfortunately last year was my sons last year to be able to play for Lennie - college coaches can't coach players after they are in the 9th grade. Great coach, better man. Lennie's offensive machine would be the perfect compliment to Malzahn! I have no idea why a big d1 school hasn't hired him yet. He would get it done in a hurry. Only recruits high character players. He is amazing at finding players that are overlooked by others, that buy into his system and play as a team. Lennie is a winner. And a proven one. He has turned UAH into a Division 2 national contender repeatedly. UAH is a tough place to recruit due to high grade requirements. That coupled with Lennies personal filters of only recruiting smart, high character kids allows him to put together a team that is fun to watch and very easy to root for. I'm telling you - Lennie Acuff is the guy JJ needs to visit.
serious Clark? " Lennie's offensive machine would be the perfect compliment to Malzahn."
I went to a small college in MS (Belhaven) where Lennie had his first HC job. He was the youngest college BB coach in the country at the time (25 or 26). I worked with the athletic dept and announced sporting events so I saw a lot of Coach Acuff. He is a great teacher and wonderful influence on young men. He also was very kind and appreciative to the support staff (like me). I would love to see him get a shot at coaching D1 ball. I just don't think it would happen b/c it makes too much sense.
