The Auburn Tigers Auburn selects new coach Auburn, Al-- The Tigers have decided to turn to Coach Knight to put Auburn back in the top 25, compete for a SEC Championship and become a national team. He will bring a change in offensive philosophy and make the defense tougher and stronger. Here are some of his remarks about the job. Coach Knight "I am happy to be in Auburn, a college where my dad attended for a few years. I'm excited about the Iron Bowl with the rivalry with Alabama. I am anxious to get out there on the field and making some calls to the recruits that we will pursue this year. We are a lil behind but I think we will be alright, I expect to finish somewhere between 12-0 and 9-3 I cant tell who we will lose to or if we will lose. War Eagle."
