It's difficult to imagine a more seamless assistant coaching change than Auburn losing offensive line coach Herb Hand to Texas and bringing back JB Grimes as his replacement. Grimes coached the same position at Auburn from 2013-15. "I'm excited about JB," coach Gus Malzahn said. "We know exactly what we're getting. He's one of the best teachers I've been around in the 28 years I've been coaching. I know our players are excited to have him back."
