AUBURN, Ala.Gus Malzahn has some work to do replenishing the ranks of his support staff.

Two more members have left Auburn in the past two days to accept assistant coaching positions elsewhere. On Tuesday, defensive analyst Brandon Hall was hired as Jacksonville State's co-defensive coordinator, which was first reported by The Anniston Star.

On Wednesday, another member of the Tigers' support staff departed when Wes Murphy took a job with Virginia Union. Murphy served as Auburn's assistant director of player development this past season. In his new position at Virginia Union, Murphy will coach the offensive line as well as take on responsibilities as the team's recruiting coordinator.

With Hall and Murphy moving on, Auburn has now lost five members of its support staff in the past month.

Offensive analyst Chip Lindsey became the co-offensive coordinator at Southern Miss, high school relations director Al Pogue landed a job as Troy's cornerbacks coach and analyst (and former Carver coach) Dell McGee joined Georgia Southern's staff as the running backs coach.
