AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn assistant coach Steve Ensminger will
run the offense the rest of the season.

Coach Tommy Tuberville said Thursday that Ensminger won't be a
candidate to replace Tony Franklin as offensive coordinator.
Tuberville fired Franklin six games into his first season with the
20th-ranked Tigers on Wednesday.

Ensminger is Auburn's inside receivers coach. He will work from
the press box and communicate with Tuberville about plays.

Ensminger is a former LSU quarterback who had coaching stints
with Georgia, Texas A&M, Clemson and Louisiana Tech.

Tuberville hired Ensminger initially to work with the
quarterbacks. He handled playcalling duties under offensive
coordinator Hugh Nall for the 2003 season, but the offense
struggled.
