    Head coach for the football programs at Iowa State University (2007-08) and Auburn University (2009-12)
    He was a coaching nomad in the college ranks.
    He lost 10 straight games after his Iowa State team started the year 2-0 (2008).
    His 2010 undefeated season at Auburn was largely credited in part to Cam Newton's lone season at the school, and not for his coaching prowess.
    His Auburn team went 3-9 two years after winning the NCAA National Championship.
    His tenure at Auburn ended in scandal after it was revealed he, along with other Auburn coaches, skirted NCAA rules in order to keep his team academically eligible to play.
    He earned Master's degrees in both guidance and counselling from Clemson.
    He started his coaching career in the high school ranks, before moving up to the college ones.
    He emulated his defensive schemes from the Tampa 2 model, made famous by Monte Kiffin.
    He guided Auburn to three consecutive bowl game appearances in his first three seasons at the helm.
    He guided the Auburn football program to the school's first national championship (2010).
