Report: Auburn OC Rhett Lashlee a potential candidate for Sun Belt job
At 282.5 rushing yards per game, Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee can claim the SEC’s top ground game on his latest resume. A school in a neighboring state may be wanting Lashlee to bring that rushing attack to the Sun Belt.
Georgia State fired coach Trent Miles after the team fell to 2-8, and ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg lists Lashlee as a potential candidate for the Atlanta job:
Some potential candidates for Georgia State: Maryland OC Walt Bell (extensive Sun Belt ties); Charleston Southern coach Jamey Chadwell; South Florida co-OC David Reaves; Auburn OC Rhett Lashlee; Jacksonville State coach John Grass; Arizona State OC Chip Lindsey. Wonder if Clemson OCs Tony Elliott and Jeff Scott would get a look.
Lashlee has some previous Sun Belt experience, having coached at Arkansas State in 2012 as Gus Malzahn’s offensive coordinator and quarterback coach in 2012. He followed Malzahn the following season to Auburn.
