OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -Former Auburn All-American defensive lineman Tracy Rocker is returning to his alma mater as defensive line coach.
Rocker held the same position at Mississippi, where officials confirmed on Monday that he was leaving.
He helped guide the No. 14 Rebels to an amazing turnaround from worst in the Southeastern Conference to a Cotton Bowl win over Texas Tech, driven in large part by outstanding play along the defensive line.
Rocker was a two-time All-American and three-time All-SEC player at Auburn. He played two years in the NFL before going on to coach at Arkansas, Cincinnati, Troy State and West Alabama.
