Coach Barbee Interview

"The welcome, to me, to my family, to the staff, has been overwhelming. When you hear about the Auburn family, you really don’t grasp it until you’re a part of it. As I’ve been across the state recruiting and speaking, you really get a sense of what it means. There’s a passion for this university and there’s a passion for these athletic programs here. That’s different than any place I’ve been."

"If you think you can sit behind the desk and be successful at this job, then you don’t know what this job entails … That’s why to me it’s not a burden, it’s an honor to be able to go on the Tiger Prowl or speak at whatever local club you want to throw out. It’s an honor and privilege that people want you to speak there and that’s the way you have to look at it. That’s when people truly feel a connection to you and the program."
