Auburn fires first-year wide receiver coach Cornelius Williams

Four games during his tenure as Reddish brown‘s head coach, Bryan Harsin, is changing his staff. Broad receiver coach Cornelius Williams was fired Sunday, according to several reports. Offensive analyst Eric Kiesau is expected to train Auburn’s receivers going forward.

Williams joined Harsin’s staff at Auburn after six seasons at Troy, his alma mater. Williams signed a $ 600,000 two-year contract earlier this year and owes the rest of his contract. This sum can be mitigated by his future salary if Williams is hired elsewhere.

Harsin had repeatedly been critical of the receivers early this season, and the Tigers left Georgia State 24-12 in the third quarter before gathering for a 34-24 victory. Auburn begins conference games this week at LSU.

Kiesau came to Auburn with Harsin. At Boise State, he was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach and had previously worked as a co-offensive coordinator and receiving coach in Harsin’s program.
