New name from Big 12 potentially added to Auburn coaching search – Auburn Wire

The Auburn coaching search has reached its sixth day and there is seemingly no end in sight as a number of candidates are expected to interview for the job in the coming days.

A new name has been added to that mix in West Virginia head coach Neal Brown, per Steven Godfrey.

The 40-year-old Brown is in his second year in Morgantown after leading Troy to success from 2015-18, winning 10 games for three straight seasons. The Mountaineers are 10-11 in his two seasons in charge.

He also has ties within the SEC, serving as the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach at Kentucky from 2013-14.

On Friday night, it was reported that five coaches — Kevin Steele, Steve Sarkisian, Billy Napier, Tony Elliott and Brent Venables — have received invitations for an interview. On Saturday, Elliott, Clemson’s offensive coordinator, issued a statement saying he has not talked to Auburn nor will be interviewing.
