AU’s New OC Kenny Dillingham Meets with the Media for the 1st Time Since Joining Auburn’s Staff
DILLINGHAM SAYS HE WILL BE IN THE BOOTH FOR THE MUSIC CITY BOWL OBSERVING AUBURN'S OFFENSE
It’s been a windy and rainy day in Nashville, but that didn’t put a damper on Auburn’s new offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham’s introduction to the media for the first time with the Auburn program.
Dillingham will be in the booth tomorrow during the game while head coach Gus Malzahn is calling the offensive plays.
Dillinghams main goal on gameday will be observing personnel.
“I just got here obviously, so I’m just kind of using this bowl prep just to kind of observe and learn about our football team just from an outsiders perspective, but what I’ve seen so far is very impressive in terms of how our guys are prepared for the bowl game,” says Dillingham.
Dillingham was previously at Memphis where he coached under Mike Norvell, setting up a perfect fit between Malzahn and Dillingham who both worked for Norvell in the past as offensive coordinators.
“Obviously our coaching trees are the same tree and I heard about him all the time in our room you know ‘this is what coach would do, this is what coach would do,’ so I heard about him more than I’ve actually met him in a positive light and I’m excited to get to work along side him,” says Dillingham.
Now Dillingham is only 28 years old making him one of the youngest FBS offensive coordinators in the country. It’ll be a good one tomorrow between Auburn and Purdue in the Music City bowl. Kickoff set for 12:30 central time.
