The Auburn Tigers and head coach Gene Chizik brought out new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler [<--- seemingly unembeddable video there] on Monday. Coming from the Temple Owls, Loeffler takes over for new Arkansas St. Red Wolves head coach Gus Malzahn, a Broyles Award winner as the nation's top assistant.
When asked about what appears to be the most pressing issue -- whether Auburn will retain elements of Malzahn's wide-open attack or shift to a pro-style scheme -- Loeffer said he likes it all and is just here to score "football points." I like that, and hope we all start referring to points in this fashion. He also said his offense's duty is to "protect that defense," further suggesting that Malzahn's aggressive offense became just a little bit too fast-paced for Chizik's preferences as time went by.
He said he was congratulated by former fellow Michigan Wolverines depth chart dweller Tom Brady, while Chizik noted both Loeffler and new defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder each has SEC and NFL experience. Loeffler coached Detroit Lions quarterbacks for the 2008 season.
