AU to change cornerbacks coach

AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

Auburn head football coach Gene Chizik announced Tuesday afternoon that he's making a staff change on the Plains. 

Chizik said cornerbacks coach Phillip Lolley is coming off the field, but will remain with the program in an administrative capacity. Lolley has been the cornerbacks coach the last three seasons at Auburn, and has been on staff since 1999. 

A replacement for Lolley is already underway according to the Auburn Athletics Department.

"We appreciate Coach Lolley and the contributions he has made to the Auburn football program in his various roles over the years," Chizik said. "We look forward to him continuing to help with the program's success in his new capacity." 

Lolley was a conditioning coach from 1999-2000, before serving as the secondary coach from 2000-03. From 2004-08, Lolley was the Director of NFL Relations prior to returning to the field as a coach in 2009. 

Lolley, 57, received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Livingston in 1977 and 1981, respectively. He was a high school coach in the state of Alabama from 1977-98.
