Tracy Rocker has agreed to coach the Auburn defensive line, according to several people familiar with the hiring process. Auburn has also spoken with longtime SEC assistant coach John Thompson about coaching the secondary, said a source familiar with the coaching search.

Rocker was an All-American, SEC Player of the Year and winner of the Outland Trophy and the Lombardi Award for his play in the Auburn defensive line in the 1980s. Rocker is leaving his job as the defensive line coach at Ole Miss after one season. He was Arkansas' defensive line coach the five years before that.
