Auburn's Chizik announces defensive assignments

Posted: Updated:

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gene Chizik has laid out his defensive coaching assignments.

Chizik said Tuesday that new hire Willie Martinez will coach secondary, as he did at his previous stops such as Georgia and Oklahoma.

Safeties coach Tommy Thigpen will now work with linebackers. New defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder will oversee the entire defense, and Mike Pelton remains as defensive line coach.

Thigpen was a three-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference linebacker at North Carolina, where he coached the position from 2005-08.
