Tony Franklin Fired

October 8th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Opelika Auburn News is reporting that Tony Franklin has been fired as Auburn’s Offensive Coordinator.

The now late Auburn Offensive Coordinator had a bad run of luck at Auburn.  In someways I am sorry to see him fail.  In other ways it is nice to see a change being made.  Had head football Coach Tommy Tuberville not axed him there may have been an uprising for his job.

Perhaps the change will bring about a winning season the rest of the season.  It looks like the Tigers will get back to the basics that made them the football powerhouse they are known for.  The question still remains who will take Franklin’s place.  Tuberville has vowed that he is “personally going to take a larger role with the offense the remainder of the season. We are going to work harder than ever to make sure we consistently improve as we move forward.”

Tuberville stated that he “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”.

War Eagle!  For more details from the Opelika Auburn News read the article.
