Dec. 11, 2007
AUBURN, Alabama (Ticker) -- Auburn offensive coordinator Al Borges resigned Tuesday, less than a week after Tigers coach Tommy Tuberville signed a two-year contract extension.
This season, Auburn ranked ninth in the Southeastern Conference in scoring (24.3 ppg) and 10th in total offense (327.8 ypg).
"Al and I discussed this during the last week and after a decision was made, I began looking for a new offensive coordinator," Tuberville said. "We hope to have someone on board in the near future." A 1981 graduate of California State University, Borges served as Auburn's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach since 2004.
"Al did a good job for us during his tenure, and we appreciate everything that he did for Auburn," Tuberville said.
The Tigers (8-4) finished second in the SEC West and will face
Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on December 31.
