Auburn rehires JB Grimes as its offensive line coach

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) JB Grimes is returning for his second stint as Auburn's offensive line coach.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced Wednesday that Grimes will replace Herb Hand, who left to become co-offensive coordinator and line coach at Texas.

Grimes coached at Auburn from 2013-15, helping the Tigers to the BCS championship game and a Southeastern Conference title in his first season.

Grimes left to coach Cincinnati's offensive line in 2016 and spent last season in the same post at UConn.

The 30-plus year coaching veteran also worked under Malzahn in 2012 at Arkansas State.

Grimes' resignation from coach Randy Edsall's UConn staff comes a week after former Chicago Bears assistant coach John Dunn was hired to be the team's new offensive coordinator.
