The search for Auburn’s next defensive line coach is kicking into gear today as multiple reports have Louisville’s Clint Hurtt on campus for an interview today.
Hurtt served as Charlie Strong’s D-line coach and recruiting coordinator last season after moving from Miami the season before. His 2008 recruiting class at Coral Gables was ranked #1 in the nation (though it’s yet to actually play like it).
Hurtt was also just named ESPN’s National Recruiter of the Year. Considering the recruiting success Auburn has had the past two years, Hurtt would seem to be a perfect fit.
If he’s not, there’s always Tim Cross. Cross spent the past four years as the defensive line coach at Minnesota before the staff was fired at the end of last season. He has also coached at Syracuse. And he is believed to be next up on Gene Chizik’s interview list.
