Williamson Standout Irked With Willis

Williamson High school lineman Terrence Coelman has a definite opinion about James Willis leaving the Auburn program.

Mobile, Ala.--Williamson High School standout defensive lineman Terrence Coleman made it clear that he is not happy with former Auburn linebacker coach James Willis after finding out the news on Wednesday evening that Willis is leaving for Alabama.

"He told me a story," Coleman says. "He told me that he was going to be at Auburn when I came there. He was sitting in my living room two nights ago and told me that. He also told me some not so nice things about Alabama so I am not happy about this. I didn't know he was like that."

Willis, who has coached linebackers the past three years for Auburn, was announced as a new assistant coach on Nick Saban's coaching staff at Alabama on Wednesday

Coleman says he is going to rethink his previous verbal commitment to Auburn, but says he is going to take several days to think about what he will do. "I am going to stay committed to Auburn, but I don't know for sure what I am going to do." He notes he will talk to family members before making a final decision.

In addition to Auburn, he notes that he is considering Arkansas, where he visited last weekend, along with Southern Miss and Tennessee. "I am going to take my visit to Southern Miss this weekend and then I am going to Tennessee on the 30th," he says.
