  • He has to get out from under Gus to prove himself.

    The question to me now is who will do the play calling at auburn since ole' Gus gave that up.
  • #6 by h0gfan6 on 11 Jan 2017
  • With no inside knowledge, I'd presume this is similar to Paul Petrino taking the Illinois OC job.  If it's generally known that the HC has a large share of the playcalling duties, sometimes a seemingly lateral (or step down) move will give the OC the opportunity to gain more experience/respect.

    No kidding!  First Randy Edsall coming back to UConn and now Lashlee going there as OC?   Very strange indeed in Storrs.

    He took over playcalling and they had their turnaround. Is gus gonna give another OC the reigns?

    Got to be more to this.
  • #10 by factchecker on 11 Jan 2017
  • hmmm....

    Maybe Rhett is wanting to develop his own resume so he can move to HC soon.

    Next Razorback coach if/when/however Bielema leaves?
  • #11 by ricepig on 11 Jan 2017

  • $250,000 pay cut.
  • #12 by 12247 on 11 Jan 2017
  • I believe the turnaround had more to do with White getting healthy there for a while and actually learning his job a bit.  Remember, he stunk up the place early on.  Then played pretty good and then got hurt.  On his best day, he is not the answer.

    Bet Lashlee wanted to spread his wings a bit to better himself for a HC job at some point.
    Now we will see who gets the keys to the 10 year old ford compact and turns it into the sleek Lexus it could be with a QB on hand.

  • There it is.
  • #14 by IMABIELEMA on 11 Jan 2017
  • Lashlee was pushed out.  Look for younger Briles to take the job.

  • By publicly saying he was turning the play calling over to Lashlee, Gus has his scapegoat
    When his seat starting getting warm.

  • When it comes to behavior, Lashlee is a mini-version of BP. 

    And dude likes to brag. That's not a good thing as a coach or in your love life.

    Younger Briles that just became Lane's OC at Fl Atlantic?

    I didn't know that.  I never really paid attention to Rhett.... just threw it out there b/c some hogvillians want an "Arkansas Boy" as coach.

    Lashlee was pushed out because of their horrible QB play the last 2 seasons, somebody had to go from the head of the offense! That is one of 2 people.
  • #29 by onebadrubi on 11 Jan 2017
  • Gus's idea of a QB is the best athlete on the field, nick marshal types.
  • #30 by Sed76 on 11 Jan 2017
  • Don't both Gus and Rhett basically call the same 3 plays over and over again? The play calling looked exactly the same even after Gus supposedly turned it over.
  • #31 by Calling All Hogs on 11 Jan 2017
  • if anyone asks between now and signing day, Rhett left and took a pay cut because the NCAA is about to come down hard on Auburn with massive sanctions.

    One of northwest Arkansas' golden children. Sounds like a dream in the making for the hill folk.
  • #33 by Hogs958 on 11 Jan 2017
  • This is Gus' free pass. Gus has failed at recruiting a QB, and this is his one get out of jail free card.

    If the NCAA didn't do anything over Cam then they're not doing anything about an 8-4 team.

  • Could it be he is trying to get out of a non SEC clause. I wouldn't be surprised to see him at a different SEC school as an OC in a couple of years. I believe there is a plan in place already and this is part of the plan.
    Guys I'm no conspiracy theorist but just think about it. Could there be something cooking if BB drops back 6 or 7 wins again for the next couple of years. Could Gus be a part of that plan. This is looking a bit fishy.

    Lol no.

  • Gus doesn't need an OC.  Just needs an assistant beside him keeping him stocked up with chewing gum.... :)
  • #41 by longpig on 11 Jan 2017
  • So he really was the OC in name only.

  • Lashlee is a good Coach trapped in a tough situation. Gust stayed loyal to his QB from Shiloh and Rhett probably wanted to prove himself somewhere else. There's former Auburn connections up there and the offense he has now has pretty much peaked.

    Since UCONN won't affect us in any way, I hope he succeeds on his own. He's relaxed and basically the polar opposite demeanor of Gus. Absolutely not a mini BP.

    He has the former Baylor QB on campus that is suppose to be pretty salty.  Can run and throw.

    Could be a bad thing for us if Aub gets a good OC/QB coach that actually knows how to develop a passing game.

    Better than most first posts actually.

    Still a strange move. Gus bus seems to be leaking oil.....
  • #50 by NuttinItUp on 12 Jan 2017
  • Like other said, he probably wants to get out from under the wings of Gus to show he can do it on his own.

    If he is successful, head coaching opportunities will open up. If he is unsuccessful, he will go back to being a position coach.
