In football.

Lots of football coaches change jobs around this time of year. Few hires are all that shocking. One that is definitely shocking: Connecticut hiring away Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee to the same job, as the Huskies announced Wednesday night.

Lashlee was Auburn’s offensive coordinator for the last four seasons, coming aboard with head coach Gus Malzahn for 2013. That first year, Lashlee helped turn the inexperienced Nick Marshall into an dangerous option QB, and the Tigers came minutes away from a national championship. He was a rising star.

Things haven’t been as good for the Tigers over the past few seasons. Lashlee, 33, didn’t get an offense to 32 points per game in either of the last two seasons. This year’s team never found consistency at quarterback, even after Lashlee took over play-calling duties from Malzahn at the end of September.

Uh, still. Lashlee is going from an SEC West legacy program to UConn. In football! At the surface, it’s exceptionally odd, and this doesn’t make it any less so:
