Join Coach John Ray and Doug Dean as they cover the big moves Auburn Coach Gus Malzahn has made in recent days to fill out his staff for the 2016 season, from the promotion of Travis Williams to linebackers coach to the unexpected departure of O-Line coach J. B. Grimes and hiring of Penn State O-line coach Herb Hand. Hand is a former colleague of Malzahn’s from his 2007-2008 Tulsa days, which portends the full-on commitment by Malzahn to return the read-option attack in ’16.
Ray and Dean also discuss the huge news that Carl Lawson will forego the NFL draft to return for his senior season, which may be Malzahn’s most important “recruitment” this year. Finally, Coach Ray and Dean discuss the emergence of the relatively new “loss of value” insurance policies for likely NFL first round drafts like Carl Lawson, and whether programs like Auburn should fund such policies.
