The Auburn Tigers enter the 2012 season with two new coordinators pacing the sidelines. This is the first major shift in the coaching staff since Gene Chizik’s arrival, and it will bring a very different look to the offense. Despite the formation changes that will come, there will be five go-to plays that fans can expect to see from the new offense led by Scot Loeffler.
Some of the formations that will be used this season will be very similar to those found in the Gus Malzahn offense, but the concepts behind the plays will be different. There will be some staples that will remain, but expect some new plays to land on the play-call sheet as well.
Scot Loeffler has only been an offensive coordinator for one full season—Temple in 2011—but he has been a major part of offensive play calls for Michigan and Florida through the years. A variety of formations are expected this fall.
As the Tigers look to build a more potent offensive attack for the 2012 season, let's take a look at five plays that will keep the Tigers afloat when they are in need of sure yards or big plays.
