Ex-Auburn QB Jason Campbell pays respects to late Pat Dye
Former Auburn quarterback Jason Campbell went on Twitter Monday to pay his respects to the late Pat Dye.
Campbell played at Auburn from 2001-2004 and was SEC Player of the Year as a senior in 2004. Dye was the head coach at Auburn from 1981-1992.
Condolences to the Pat Dye family. Coach was always supportive to me during my time at Auburn. I also got to know him personally away from football out on his property during an internship. Coach loved Auburn and Auburn loved him back! RIP coach!
