Life Comes Next Moment: Will Muschamp with multiple offers on table
Wednesday December 3rd, 2014

Former Florida head coach Will Muschamp has received an offer to join Auburn as its defensive coordinator, reports Jay G. Tate of Rivals.com.

Muschamp, 43, has said that wants to return to coaching in some capacity next season after he was fired last month.

Muschamp was Auburn’s defensive coordinator in 2006 and 2007 before leaving to join Texas for the same job. He was supposed to succeed Mack Brown as its head coach, but ended up taking the Florida job at the end of the 2010 season.

Auburn is seeking to replace Ellis Johnson, who was fired after the Tigers gave up 55 points in a loss to Alabama on Saturday. The school will be searching for its fourth defensive coordinator in the last six seasons.

According to the report, Muschamp could receive a deal that will pay him $1.2 million per season from Auburn. He is already owed $6 million from Florida.

The report says that Texas A&M, which also is looking to fill its defensive coordinator vacancy, and at least two NFL teams have contacted Muschamp about joining their staffs.
