Josh Brown is no longer Auburn’s head coach.
But he is still at Auburn, where he’ll coach his alma mater for the next four years.
The Tigers announced Tuesday that Brown has been dismissed.
The dismissal is effective immediately.
The Auburn athletics department released a statement Tuesday afternoon confirming that the firing is “in the best interests of Auburn Athletics and the University.”
Brown, who was Auburn’s quarterback from 2011-14, was a head coach at Auburn from 2006-09.
Brown’s firing comes just weeks after the Tigers hired LSU offensive coordinator Greg Schiano, a former Auburn quarterback.
Schiano was fired following the season and replaced by Greg Schimel, who will replace him.
Schimels team has struggled, especially in recent weeks, as LSU and Auburn went through their worst losing streak since 2005.
Brown was an offensive assistant at Auburn during the 2011 season.
He served as Auburn’s offensive coordinator from 2008-11, and was promoted to the head coaching position in 2010.
The Crimson Tide and Tigers finished the 2011 campaign 8-7.
Auburn won the SEC West and lost to LSU in the SEC Championship Game.
Brown spent the 2012 season at LSU and spent the 2013 season as the head coach of the New Orleans Saints.
