AUBURN — Auburn football has fired offensive coordinator Philip Montgomery.

“I informed Philip today he would not be retained as our offensive coordinator,” coach Hugh Freeze said in a statement released Friday. “Philip is a good coach and a good man. Decisions like this are never easy, however, I decided this is best for our program moving forward. I’m appreciative of his efforts this past year and wish him nothing but the best.”

Montgomery, who joined Freeze’s inaugural staff on the Plains in December 2022, came to the Tigers after an eight-season run as Tulsa’s head coach. Montgomery guided the Golden Hurricane to 439.8 total offensive yards per game and 30.7 points in 96 contests.
