Auburn has its next athletics director in place.
John Cohen has resigned from his role as Mississippi State’s AD and will be taking the position at Auburn, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed to the Clarion Ledger.
Cohen will become the 16th AD in Auburn history. MSU compliance director Bracky Brett will be MSU’s interim AD.
Auburn has been without a permanent athletics director since August after Allen Greene’s resignation. Reports surfaced this weekend, just as Auburn football kicked off against Arkansas, that the Tigers were nearing a deal with Cohen.
