Auburn Duo Leaving Football Program
According to Al.com, linebacker Anthony Swain and punter Jimmy Hutchinson have left the team. There has been no confirmation of the news from Auburn, with head coach Gus Malzahn saying:
“I’m going to update our spring roster next Tuesday, so I’m going to wait until then and I’ll give you all the updates — not just with him, but with other people, too.”
Swain, a junior, played in all 13 games during the 2014 season serving mostly as a backup. He finished the season with 18 tackles, 3 tackles-for-loss, one sack, and a blocked kick. Swain was also a contributor on Auburn’s 2013 National Championship runner up team. In 2013, he played in all 14 games recording 26 tackles, 1 tackle-for-loss, and recovering a fumble.
Hutchinson, a redshirt freshman, was the backup punter behind Daniel Carlson. He finished the year with 9 punts, traveling 329 yards for an average of 36.6 yards. He had a long of 52 yards while his last punt was a horrendous 22 yard punt in the Outback Bowl against Wisconsin.
