Gus Malzahn Confirms Auburn Has Hired Away LSU's Kevin Steele

Auburn has its replacement for former defensive coordinator Will Muschamp. Wednesday, following his team's victory over Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl, head coach Gus Malzahn officially announced that LSU defensive coordinator Kevin Steele will be leaving one group of Tigers for another. 

Steele's decision comes after a great deal of back-and-forth between the programs Wednesday. The Advocate reported earlier that LSU made an effort to keep Steele around.
