Reports: Chizik interested in OSU's Taylor

Curtis Luper has already jumped from Oklahoma State to Auburn.
Could OSU receivers coach Trooper Taylor be next?
Auburn coach Gene Chizik has requested and received permission to speak with Taylor about a job opening, likely as Auburn's receivers coach.
Two factors could complicate matters: 1) Taylor has a co-offensive coordinator title at OSU. Would Auburn coordinator Gus Malzahn be willing to split his title with Taylor to bring him onboard? 2) Tennessee is also apparently in the running for Taylor's services. Taylor coached at Tennessee before going to Oklahoma State.
An Auburn plane flew in and out of Stillwater, Okla. today. That could be Taylor, but it could also be Luper moving into town or any number of other scenarios.

UPDATE: According to several blogs, including these fine products: and, Taylor is in town as he was spotted at the airport. Luper was also there.
