There are some new names and titles on the Auburn football coaching staff.
Namely, head coach Gus Malzahn added co-defensive coordinator to linebackers coach Travis Williams' responsibilities and recruiting coordinator to defensive backs coach Marcus Woodson's duties.
Brett Whiteside and Jorrell Bostrom, both of whom have been members of Malzahn’s off-field staff since his hiring at Auburn, were promoted to director of football operations and administration, and to a position that includes "all player-related activities," respectively.
Bostrom's new position isn't specified, however, Kenny Ingram left to become Arkansas' defensive line coach two weeks ago, opening up the director of player relations position.
As far as new additions, there are two new names in analyst positions. Adam Herring, a former Auburn linebacker (2008-09), has been brought on as a defensive analyst focusing specifically on working with the linebackers. Previously, Herring worked in defensive quality control at Akron and Texas. Former South Carolina defensive back Addison Williams (2007-09) has been added as a defensive analyst and assistant to Malzahn, as well.
Two-time Super Bowl champion with the Steelers and former Auburn two-time first team All-SEC offensive lineman Kendall Simmons' was hired in an off-field role last month. Levorn Harbin was hired away from Louisiana as Auburn's new recruiting director earlier this month. Both positions were officially announced today.
The final addition to the staff is Steven Haunga, who played offensive tackle under Malzahn at Arkansas State. He will join as an offensive graduate assistant after three seasons working as a graduate assistant and as offensive analyst at Tulsa.
