Defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff couldn’t pass up a second chance at returning to Auburn University.

McGriff spoke Tuesday at the Dallas County Auburn Club at the Central Alabama Farmer’s Co-Op Market.

Before the event, McGriff spoke to the media about being back at Auburn. He was the Tigers’ secondary coach and co-defensive coordinator in 2016 before being named defensive coordinator and assistant head coach at Ole Miss from 2017 to 2018.

“I’m blessed to have this opportunity coming back to Auburn,” McGriff said. “Auburn’s a first-class football program. I have an opportunity to be around head coach Gus Malzahn and defensive coordinator Kevin Steele. Auburn has great kids in the locker room. I want to retire at Auburn.”

Dallas County Auburn Club President Chris Griffin thanked the local Auburn Alumni for restarting the Club. It was officially chartered last year.

“It’s taken a while to get here,” Griffin said. “Hopefully, we can continue to grow.”

Griffin announced that Selma High graduate and softball standout Mariah Davis received a $1,500 scholarship from the Dallas County Club.
