Kevin Steele’s time as the defensive coordinator at LSU has come to an end after one year with the Tigers.

Steele is Auburn’s new defensive coordinator. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced the hiring Wednesday after Auburn beat Memphis 31-10 in the Birmingham Bowl.

Previously, Steele was an assistant with Alabama before coming to LSU last January. In his lone season in Baton Rouge, the Tigers were fifth overall in total defense in the SEC.

Steele replaced John Chavis, who left for Texas A&M after the Music City Bowl a year ago.

Auburn defensive coordinator Will Muschamp left after one season to take the head coaching job at South Carolina.
