Auburn's Burns settles into new role

By  | 

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Kodi Burns made two big moves during fall

The Auburn player switched to receiver after failing to claim
the starting spot at quarterback. Perhaps equally important, he
stood up shortly after getting that news and told his teammates
that the coaches made the right move in handing the job to Chris

With that, Burns stamped out the division that players said
infected the team last season.

Burns is expected to be in the Tigers' six-man rotation at
receiver, an area that needed the help.

He also gives Auburn a potential threat as a wildcat

Burns is having to work overtime mastering his new position and
also staying after practice to work at quarterback with offensive
coordinator Gus Malzahn.
