Auburn offensive coordinator Tony Franklin has been relieved of his duties with the program effective immediately, announced head coach Tommy Tuberville Wednesday afternoon.
"After evaluating where we are at this point of the season offensively, I felt it was in the best interest of the Auburn football program to make this change," Tuberville said. "I'm not satisfied with where we are and I am personally going to take a larger role with the offense the remainder of the season. We are going to work harder than ever to make sure we consistently improve as we move forward."
Franklin was hired in December 2007 and coached the offense in the 2007 Chick-fil-A Bowl as well as the first six games this season.
