Austin Davis releases statement after he resigns as Auburn's offensive coordinator
Austin Davis has officially stepped down as Auburn’s offensive coordinator, and released a statement about his decision.
“The last week has been difficult for me as I’ve made the decision to step away from coaching football,” Davis said in a statement. “Auburn University and Coach Harsin have been tremendous through this whole process. I am grateful for the opportunity that was presented to me from a coaching standpoint and equally as important, the way Coach Harsin has handled my current situation.”
“My decision to resign is 100 percent based on personal reasons. After more than a decade in the NFL with the daily grind as a player and coach I’ve realized how much I miss my family and my desire to spend more time with them. While I need to step away from coaching, I can’t say enough about the first-class way I was welcomed into the Auburn family and the way this football program is run with a championship mindset and a focus on developing these young men into winners on and off the field.”
Davis, the Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks coach, was hired about 6 weeks ago. This puts Bryan Harsin in a position to hire his third offensive coordinator in about 13 months after Harsin fired offensive coordinator Mike Bobo after one year with the program, and Bobo has since landed at Georgia as an analyst.
