Auburn hires J.B. Grimes to coach offensive line

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn's Gus Malzahn has hired J.B. Grimes to coach the offensive line.

Grimes has more than 30 years of college experience and held the same post for Malzahn last season at Arkansas State. Auburn announced the hiring Wednesday.

Malzahn calls Grimes "a tremendous coach who is 1 of the nation's top teachers at the offensive line position."

Grimes' most recent posts before Arkansas State included stints at Kansas (2010-11) and Mississippi State (2004-08). He also has worked at East Carolina, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech and Arkansas among other stops.
