The Auburn Tigers looked quite tame in Saturday’s 14-6 to Clemson, at least on offense.
Auburn’s defense played spectacularly for much of the night in limited Clemson to just 96 yards rushing. Unfortunately for Auburn, its offense looked even worse than Clemson’s.
Auburn managed just 117 total yards while allowing QB Jarrett Stidham to be sacked 11 times. It was an abysmal performance and one the team will look to move passed quickly.
During his press conference Tuesday, head coach Gus Malzahn announced a change for gameday that will hopefully provide an improvement for the offense, offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey will no longer be coaching from the sidelines, he’s moving up to the booth.
Another offensive change that will be made, offensive line coach Herb Hand is making the opposite move — he’s going from the box to the sidelines for gamedays.
“I think that will help,” Malzahn said. “It’s where he’s comfortable.”
Malzahn claimed this move was Lindsey’s idea, not his.
“I want to make sure he’s comfortable,” Malzahn added.
