Auburn hires Chip Lindsey as Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks coach

Auburn has found a new offensive coordinator.

Chip Lindsey has been hired by the Tigers to serve as their O.C. and quarterbacks coach.

“I’m excited to welcome Chip Lindsey to the Auburn family,” Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said. “I have the utmost confidence in his ability to lead our offense and his strength in developing quarterbacks makes him the perfect fit. Chip is a man of integrity and character who will fit well within our staff. He has great knowledge and enthusiasm for the game and is a rising star in this profession.”

Lindsey most recently served the same positions at Arizona State this past season and Southern Miss for two years prior. Lindsey has 20 years of coaching experience including a stint with Auburn back in 2013.

“My family and I are very excited to return to Auburn and our home state,” Lindsey said. “Both are very special places to us. I looking forward to reuniting with Coach Malzahn and his staff. They are great coaches and great people. I look forward to being part of something special and helping Auburn win championships.”

Lindsey replaces Rhett Lashlee who took the Offensive Coordinator position at UConn.
