Auburn to Orlando pipeline continues: Gus Malzahn brings key Tiger staffer with him to UCF
Since Gus Malzahn took the UCF job, a number of former Auburn players and staffers have followed him to Orlando.
As far as players go, RB Mark-Antony Richards, WR Nate Craig-Myers and DL Big Kat Bryant have followed their former coach to UCF.
On Tuesday, Malzahn brought on a key staffer from Auburn — assistant to the head coach Ross Newton:
Thanks to Auburn and Coach Harsin for having me on staff. Auburn was great to us and we wish everyone the best. Next Chapter- Allison and I are super excited to join @CoachGusMalzahn and the @UCF_Football Family! In Orlando, I will be the Assistant to the Head Coach.#ChargeOn

UCF is starting to look a lot like Auburn, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing considering how well Malzahn’s teams played in certain years.
Will the Auburn-to-Orlando pipeline continue this offseason? We’ll see if there are any moves left to make for the Knights moving forward.
