Will Muschamp may not have worked out as a head coach at Florida, but he has a sterling track record as a defensive coordinator. He has previously served in that role at LSU and the Miami Dolphins under Nick Saban, Auburn, and Texas, and may find himself on the sideline of a huge college program very soon.
According to a report by Rivals' Jay G. Tate, Auburn and Texas A&M both have offers out to Muschamp, and the Tigers are willing to compete with any offer from another school. He's also heard from multiple NFL teams.
The Tigers have made the first move in their search for a new defensive coordinator.
Former Florida head coach Will Muschamp has been offered the job and is considering the opportunity, AuburnSports.com has learned. The one-time Auburn assistant coached the Gators during their loss at Florida State last weekend and held firm on plans to spend some time clearing his head before considering his next move.
He has several options to consider.
Sources say Muschamp also has received a lucrative offer from Texas A&M, which fired defensive coordinator Mark Snyder on Sunday. Auburn has assured Muschamp that it will compete with any offer made by a university program, though at least two NFL organizations have contacted him with provisional offers.
According to CFBStats' Total Defense statistic, Auburn was 59th in the country in yards allowed per game, while Texas A&M was 104th. Both teams, which boast explosive offenses, could be scary with a defense guided by someone like Muschamp.
