Scot Loeffler Named Offensive Coordinator

A short while ago, Auburn coach Gene Chizik tapped Temple offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler to run Auburn's offense. Prior to this year, he served two seasons as Florida's quarterbacks coach. In 2009, while coaching Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow, the Gator offense led the nation in pass efficiency.

Loeffler, 37, played quarterback at Michigan from 1993-96, and was the Wolverines' quarterback coach from 2002-2007. He was Central Michigan's quarterbacks' coach from 2000-01. He also spent a season on the staff of the Detroit Lions.

"Scot is a rising star who has worked with some very good quarterbacks, and has achieved a tremendous amount of success," Gene Chizik said in a statement.

"He is a tireless worker, is an outstanding recruiter and knows the rigors of competing in this conference. We're very excited to have Scot join our staff and we welcome him to the Auburn family."
