Familiar faces in new places

A pair of former Auburn coaches found new workplaces on Friday.

Eddie Gran has accepted a job at Tennessee and Terry Price is moving from Iowa State, where he had been for just a matter of weeks, to Ole Miss.

Here's an overview at where Auburn's former coaches are right now:

Tommy Tuberville -- Said he is taking a year off.
Tony Franklin -- Willing to listen to coaching offers, but will likely buy back into his offensive consutling business.
Paul Rhoads -- Head coach, Iowa State.
Eddie Gran -- Assistant coach, Tennessee (position not yet announced).
Steve Ensminger -- My colleague Andrew Gribble reported Ensminger will coach at Smiths Station High School, where he will also teach PE.
Hugh Nall -- Left the business to become a COO for a trucking company.
Greg Knox -- Reportedly talked with Southern Mississippi about a job opening. Hasn't agreed anywhere.
Don Dunn -- Talked with Ole Miss about a job opening. Could be a candidate to replace Price at Iowa State.
Terry Price -- Took a job as Iowa State's defensive line coach, but accepted the same position at Ole Miss a few weeks later.
James Willis -- Rehired by Auburn coach Gene Chizik.
