Auburn hires Dameyune Craig as co-offensive coordinator
Auburn has hired former quarterback Dameyune Craig as co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach.
Craig spent the past three seasons as Florida State's quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator. He played quarterback for the Tigers from 1994-97, and holds school marks for passing yards (3,227) and completions (216) in a season.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said Thursday that Craig is one of college football's "top young coaches" and best recruiters.
The Seminoles won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship this season and went 12-2.
Craig also worked with quarterbacks Christian Ponder and EJ Manuel. Before that, he spent two seasons coaching wide receivers for South Alabama.
Malzahn brought Rhett Lashlee with him from Arkansas State as offensive coordinator three days after his hiring.
The Tigers will run Malzahn's fast-paced, spread-style offense.
