Chad Dollar To Join Bruce Pearl's Staff At Auburn

Chad Dollar has decided to join Bruce Pearl’s staff at Auburn as an assistant coach. Dollar had accepted a job as an assistant at Illinois State less than two weeks ago.

Dollar spent the past five years as an assistant and associate head coach at Georgia Tech under Brian Gregory.

Dollar has a vast resume which includes nearly 20 years as an assistant coach.

"The timing of Chad's decision may seem bad, but he cannot control when opportunities come," Muller said in the statement. "While there is never a good time for an assistant to make a move, I am happy for Chad to get this opportunity for himself and his family. I wish him nothing but the best," said Illinois State head coach Dan Muller in a statement.

Dollar was hired at ISU to replace Jeremy Ballard who was hired by Kevin Stallings at Pittsburgh.

Morrell and Smart have worked together for nearly 10 years dating back to their days on staff at Clemson together as assistant coaches.
