and Mississippi State pitching coach Butch Thompson are two candidates interviewing for the vacant Auburn job this week according to multiple reports.

Leggett coached 22 years at Clemson and won 955 games while advancing to the College World Series six times. He was dismissed from Clemson after the 2015 season.

The Hall-of-Famer had the following to say back in June after being let go by Clemson.

“There are some people that I want to thank," Leggett said. "I know my statement was generic. I've been here for 25 years, and I wrote the statement on the way out the door and it was what I thought was classy and what I thought was true and I wanted to thank the people. And, I want to do it one more time,” Leggett said. “I want to thank the fans. There are so many people who have been amazingly supportive. I want to thank Bobby Robinson and Dwight Rainey for having the faith in me in the beginning with Coach (Bill) Wilhelm and for giving me opportunity to come to Clemson."
