Herb Hand

Offensive Line Coach, Auburn Tigers

Hand is one of college football’s most innovative offensive coaches in the country, and he returned to the SEC for the 2016 season.

Under Hand’s direction, the Vanderbilt offensive line was one of the most experienced and versatile in the league. Hand shaped one of the SEC’s most talented lines and produced several NFL draft picks. Prior to joining James Franklin’s staff, Hand spent time at Tulsa as offensive coordinator, West Virginia as tight ends coach and Clemson as a offensive graduate assistant.

Hand was reunited with Gus Malzahn at Auburn for the 2016 season.
