It's Official: Ted Roof Leaves Auburn for UCF

The rumors/reports from yesterday are true. Ted Roof has left his post as defensive coordinator at Auburn to take the same job at UCF. Given those circumstances, it was likely a case of him being told to find a new job before getting fired. While Auburn did win a national championship with Roof on the job, the 358 points his '09 defense helped allow were easily the most in school history at the time. The 2011 team has allowed 352 so far with the bowl game to go. Coincidence or not I don't know, but the DC job at UCF is one that Roof's now-former boss Gene Chizik had from 1998-2001. That immediately preceded Chizik's first stint at Auburn that began in 2002.
