AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn's new defensive coordinator remembers
the Tigers as the most physical team he played against at Georgia
Tech.

Ted Roof plans to arrive in Auburn on Thursday and hasn't had a
chance to study the team's personnel yet. It's not clear what
position he will coach.

Roof welcomes defensive end Antonio Coleman's return for his
senior season as a boost for the defense.

Cornerback Jerraud Powers and defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks
have said they were skipping their senior seasons to turn pro.

Roof is a former Duke head coach who spent last season as
defensive coordinator at Minnesota. He played linebacker for
Georgia Tech and is a former defensive coordinator at his alma
mater.
