AUBURN, Alabama -- Phillip Lolley has a long and productive history at Auburn, a career that spans three coaches and a wide variety of positions working with the football team.

Fully invested in the school for the past 15 years, Lolley never expected to leave.

Not until somebody who could claim even more history with Lolley came calling during the regular season. Lolley will leave his post as Auburn's director of external operations in June and rejoin the coaching ranks, moving far north to join Edmonton Eskimos' coach Chris Jones as a defensive coach in the CFL.

"It was kind of a no-brainer at that point," Lolley said. "Even though I wouldn't leave Auburn for any place in this world except a chance to go back on the field."
