I don't think Loeffler got to bring any of his guys either. He was basically plugged in with someone elses coaches and players with a bad QB in a tough conference.
Yeah, I'm guessing Trooper Taylor may not pass the "Would this coach fit in with current coaches" test.
Welcome to the Terror Dome, baby! Welcome to the Terror Dome!
Can't be a worse coach than hite and ocain.
EDIT: Check out his recruiting

Why are you calling it the Long debacle?? He is just one of several people being interviewed. The guy didn't even get an offer according to the guru's. I have 0 problem with our coaches looking at Long as a potential candidate.
Count me in on Loeffler. I like that he has experience with a lot of respected, storied programs. He's not without faults, but we're not going to find a perfect candidate. Also excited about the potential position coaches he might bring along with his connections.
So would that mean we would run an Urban Meyer/Florida type offense? Definitely would be more exciting but I like to run the football.
Not really a fan, we could do a lot better, but then again we could also do a hell of a lot worse (Ex. Occain, Long). I'd consider this an above average hire.
Holy crap he can recruit
He's 38 years old. what is your definition of a retread?
Retread meaning he has already been fired from a major college football program
No kidding. And he's a WR coach. Just what we need.
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
Alriight so if Loeffler is the guy, how does Logan fit into his offense?
Because it seemed like he was going to be the guy. And if you don't have a problem with Long, there's about two other people on the board who share that sentiment.
Most guys who haven't been fired from a major college football program haven't been coaching long enough or were lucky enough to fall into the perfect situation.
Loeffler was never given a chance at Auburn. No way can he be judged on one year. As I posted earlier Malzahn had the #100 offense the year before, and he got the hell out of dodge because he knew what was coming.
Tough to be the guy when you don't have an offer for the job.
Eh, I know plenty about Taylor... But he's trash IMO and part of a losing culture. Wouldn't want him around VT. He can recruit but that's the extent of it. And I'm sure Beamer wouldn't like his recruiting practices (no inside info).
looking at Loeffler's bio, it appears the HCs getting let go/leaving that have led to him being "fired" ....Michigan(Carr), Detroit(0-16 Marinelli), Urban(left UF), Temple(SL took a higher profile job) and Auburn(HC fired)
this is certainly a step above Long imho
Trooper Taylor is the shadiest recruiter in college football now that Black Santa is gone. Frank wouldnt ever go for that.

From auburntigers.com , thoughts on Loeffler from Lloyd Carr and Brian Griese (when he signed with Auburn)
Lloyd Carr, former Michigan Head Coach (1995-2007) on Loeffler
"I'm delighted for Scot and think that he is a great fit for Auburn. He's a bright guy that has a great passion for the game. Not only is he an outstanding coach, but a great recruiter. He's a great teacher and there's not a quarterback out there that wouldn't enjoy playing for him.
Scot is a team guy, one of those coaches who will call a game with the mindset of doing whatever it takes to win. Some days it may be to protect the defense and some days to light it up. He will call his offense that will give the team its best chance to win.
His strength is that he is honest and up front with players and they will respect him because he has a wonderful knowledge of the game.
There will be a lot of happy fans at Auburn with this hire and a lot of new Auburn fans in the Midwest."
Brian Griese, former Michigan (1993-97) and NFL quarterback (1998-2008)
"Scot Loeffler is unquestionably one of the best teachers of quarterback play in football at any level. His ability to teach the fundamentals of the quarterback position no matter what style of offense make him unique in college football. I don't know many coaches that could coach Tom Brady and maximize his potential and then turn around and coach Tim Tebow and do the same. As a result of being involved in a number of different offensive styles I think Scot will bring a diverse and effective approach to the Auburn football team."

For those that are curious he made $500K at Auburn last year which puts him right about what Bud currently makes
I can get down with Mr. Loeffler
I'm definitely in for Loeffler!!
Loeffler played quarterback for the Michigan Wolverines from 1993 to 1996. After suffering a shoulder injury that prematurely ended his playing career, Loeffler joined Lloyd Carr's coaching staff at his alma mater as a graduate assistant, and was a part of the Wolverine staff during the 1997 undefeated, national championship season. In 2000, Loeffler was named quarterbacks coach at Central Michigan University. After coaching the Chippewas for two years, Loeffler returned to coaching quarterbacks at Michigan for the next six years.
In 2008, the Detroit Lions of the National Football League hired Loeffler to be a part of their failing offensive staff. However,after only one season out of the college ranks, Loeffler was hired by Urban Meyer to join his staff at Florida. Loeffler served as quarterbacks coach, where in his first season he was tasked with helping Tim Tebow become a more polished pro-style quarterback.
When Steve Addazio was let go from Florida to eventually become the new head coach at Temple University, he brought Loeffler along as the new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Under his leadership, the Owls offense improved to the 7th leading rushing offense in the nation (257 yards per game) and 33rd nationally in pass efficiency (142.8). The team finished the season 9-4, ranked 2nd in the MAC East and defeated Wyoming 37–15 in the 2011 New Mexico Bowl (the school's first bowl win since the 1979 Garden State Bowl). Sophomore quarterback Chris Coyer was named the bowl's MVP and finished the season with a 177.4 passer rating.
Loeffler was linked to the vacant OC positions at the University of Alabama, Louisiana State University and the University of Wisconsin.
On January 22, 2012, head coach Gene Chizik hired Loeffler to serve as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Auburn.
Loeffler has experience coaching in 10 bowl games including the 1999 Citrus Bowl, 2000 Orange Bowl, 2003 Outback Bowl, 2004 Rose Bowl, 2005 Rose Bowl, 2005 Alamo Bowl, 2007 Rose Bowl, 2008 Capital One Bowl, 2010 Sugar Bowl and the 2011 New Mexico Bowl.
