The University of Minnesota just officially annouced that defensive coordinator Ted Roof was leaving the Gophers to take a similar position at Auburn.
”Our defense improved a great deal under Coach Roof this past season,” coach Tim Brewster said in the release. ”Good coaches are always going to be in demand and I wish Ted the best of luck in the future.”
My sense is this development, while not a complete surprise — there were rumors of Roof talking to Auburn over the last few weeks — it is going to take Brewster a little longer to fill this position. I believe Brewster has a new offensive coordinator in mind and that we could get that announcement within 24 hours.
That’s it for now. I’ll get back to you when I hear more.
