AUBURN, Ala. - JB Grimes is returning for his second stint as Auburnâ€™s offensive line coach.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced Wednesday Grimes will replace Herb Hand, who left to become co-offensive coordinator at Texas.
Grimes coached at Auburn from 2013-15, helping the Tigers to the BCS championship game and a SEC title in his first season.
Grimes left to coach Cincinnatiâ€™s offensive line in 2016 and spent last season in the same post at UConn.
Grimesâ€™ resignation from coach Randy Edsallâ€™s UConn staff comes a week after former Chicago Bears assistant coach John Dunn was hired to be the teamâ€™s offensive coordinator.
