ncf_g_roof_200.jpg

Ted Roof was hired Tuesday as Auburn’s next Defensive Coordinator. In a move to make Auburn a dominate recruiting force, Roof will join with RB’s coach Luper and WR’s/Assistant head coach Taylor on Auburn’s staff. Roof has served a lot of position over the years – more noticeably as Duke’s head coach from 2004-2007. Roof made an immediate impact in one season with the Gophers, improving the nation’s worst-rated defense (No. 119 in total yards) in 2007 to No. 79 in 2008. Minnesota’s defense also improved from No. 109 in scoring (36.7 points per game) to No. 61 (24.8 ppg). Roof has extensive ties to the South, serving as defensive coordinator from 2002-03 and linebacker coach from 1990-93 at Duke. He also had a very successful stint as a Georgia Tech defensive coordinator from 1998-2001.
