According to AL.com’s Charles Goldberg, Auburn has interviewed Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart.
Smart has never been a head coach before, but has been rumored for positions for the last few years as Alabama’s defense has been tops in the country.
Smart has followed Saban from LSU to Miami and now to Alabama, it would be interesting to see him opposite his mentor in the same state.
Other names rumored for the job have been: Gus Malzahn, Gary Patterson, Chris Petersen, Charlie Strong, and Bobby Petrino
Who ever Auburn decides to hire needs to be a splash hit after they fired their BCS championship winning coach just two years after he hoisted the crystal ball above his head.
