Tim Horton

Running Backs, Auburn Tigers

Tim Horton handles Auburn’s running backs as one of Gus Malzahn’s top assistants.

Horton enters his second season as Auburn’s running backs coach in 2014 after a prolific inaugural campaign leading Heisman candidate Tre Mason to an 1,800-yard tally. A 25-year coaching veteran, Horton spent six seasons at Arkansas in a similar capacity prior to joining Gus Malzahn’s staff with the Tigers.
