Things You Should Know: Roof and Tuberville similar?

The new offensive coordinator is Gus Malzahn, Spread Guru™. But Malzahn’s approach is entirely different from that of Auburn’s last Spread Guru™, Tony Franklin. As Chris Brown of Smart Football described it:

The new defensive coordinator is Ted Roof, Jr. Auburn fans shouldn’t see a whole lot of change from they’ve seen in the last few years. Roof will probably coach a slightly more aggressive defense, but don’t expect to see a whole lot of obvious differences. Roof follows Tommy Tuberville’s emphasis on speed, not size, on defense. He’s said, “Slow guys don’t make big plays,” which pretty much sums that up.
