AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -Auburn offensive coordinator Al Borges resigned after four seasons and will not coach in the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Clemson.
Borges helped Auburn to a 13-0 record in his first year in 2004, but the Tigers' offense hasn't been as effective since the departure of stars including Jason Campbell, Carnell Williams and Ronnie Brown.
``After speaking with coach Tuberville for the better part of 20 minutes, it became increasingly clear that Auburn needed a new offensive coordinator,'' Borges said in a statement Tuesday.
Tuberville said he began searching for a new coordinator after meeting with Borges last week.
``We hope to have someone on board in the near future,'' he said.
The Tigers (8-4) begin bowl practices on Friday for the Dec. 31 game.
Auburn scored two or fewer touchdowns in six of its eight Southeastern Conference games. The Tigers finished 101st in total offense out of 119 major college teams with an average of 328 yards per game.
``Al did a good job for us during his tenure and we appreciate everything that he did for Auburn,'' Tuberville said.
Borges has directed offenses at eight schools, including California, UCLA and Oregon.
