Thursday update

Tommy Tuberville said there will not be a new offensive coordinator hired during the season.

He also said Steve Ensminger, who has coached receivers this season, will take over play-calling duties. Ensminger served as co-coordinator in 2003 with Hugh Nall, yielding mixed results. Auburn finished the 2003 season 7-5 and Tuberville was nearly fired after Jet-gate.

The way it worked in 2003, Ensminger called passing plays and Nall called running plays. Tuberville made the ultimate decision on whether Auburn would run or pass on every given play.

This time it will be Ensminger's show.

No QB has been named as of yet. Tuberville said the staff would decide between Kodi Burns and Chris Todd within the next 24 hours.

Get ready for a very interesting final half of the 2008 season.
