Auburn fires their offensive coordinator

That didn't take long. Former OC Tony Franklin was hired away last December from Troy, and now he's gone after six games.

Two days ago ESPN had an article that said in part "But contrary to some of the scuttlebutt out there among fans, Tuberville isn't at odds with Franklin and insists that he's not contemplating making a change or taking the play-calling duties away from Franklin."

Tuberville today: "After evaluating where we are at this point of the season offensively, I felt it was in the best interest of the Auburn football program to make this change...I am personally going to take a larger role with the offense the remainder of the season."

Just when you thought Auburn's offense couldn't get any worse.
