Nall Not Interested In Coaching Vacancy

Auburn, Ala.--Hugh Nall says that speculation that he is a candidate for the vacant head football coach's job at Georgia Southern is not true.

Auburn's offensive line coach says, "There is a rumor going around that I am interested in that job and it is just not true. I am not going to coach at Georgia Southern. I am not going anywhere. I am very happy at Auburn."

Nall, who is on the road recruiting in the state of Arkansas this week, says he is excited about the future of the Auburn program and the offensive line in particular.

The Tigers have to replace four offensive starters from last season's 11-2 team including All-American guard Ben Grubbs, but Auburn has verbal commitments from highly regarded offensive line prospects such as Ryan Pugh, Chaz Ramsey, Kyle Coulahan and Jared Cooper. Auburn also looks to be the leader for offensive tackle Lee Ziemba from Rogers, Ark., who took an official visit to Auburn last weekend along with Cooper, Coulahan, and Ramsey. Pugh will visit Auburn this weekend.

Nall is an original member of head coach Tommy Tuberville's Auburn staff and has been at Auburn starting with the 1999 season. He coached with Tuberville at Ole Miss prior to coming to AU.

"Auburn is a great place and I am really looking forward to our next season," he says.
