Auburn football fans are souring quickly on Tigers offensive coordinator Philip Montgomery — whose offense has failed to produce a single 100-yard passer in the offense dating back to November 5, 2022, heading into the LSU game. Amidst severe struggles for the offense against the Bayou Bengals in Baton Rouge, fans let loose on Montgomery and his lackluster attack.
“I watched an Auburn team with absolutely no hope, a worse offensive line, a less-experienced Robby Ashford run the hell out of the ball at the end of last year — with an interim head coach and an OL coach calling plays,” a prominent Auburn tweeter prefaced before saying, “And it was significantly better than whatever this is.”
“I’d get rid of Monty and bring Friend back as OC right now if I could,” one poster responded.
“Monty is not that guy,” said another.
“It seems coaches come to Auburn to die,” one black-pilled poster prefaced before saying, “As do QBs and WRs. It’s so sad man. Do people just all of a sudden suck when they come here? It almost feels cursed.”
“The Freeze/Montgomery offense has easily been the most disappointing aspect of this team,” one poster said before quipping, “It looks less imaginative than Gus.”
Ole Miss game now a must-win matchup for Auburn football coaching staff
The narrative has been completely lost by AU’s coaching staff. With fans now condemning the offense in a harsher way than Gus Malzahn’s, there is a very short leash for a highly unproven group.
If the Ole Miss game doesn’t turn out to be a proving ground for this staff — who didn’t deliver a single win during a predictably difficult stretch in Week 4, Week 5, and Week 7 with the bye week between — there could be firings before the end of the season.
Not at head coach, but next in line on the staff’s hierarchy.
