Desmond Tisdol finds new home with AAC program
Former Auburn linebacker Desmond Tisdol has become the 10th player from last season’s roster to find a new home.
Tisdol announced Thursday that he will transfer to Florida Atlantic, which sets him up to be reunited with former Auburn special teams coordinator, Roc Bellantoni, who was named the defensive coordinator for the new-look staff at FAU under head coach Tom Herman.
Tisdol had a limited role with the Tigers during his three-year stint, as he recorded just 16 tackles in six appearances since the 2020 season. Last season was his most productive season, where he made 12 stops.
Tisdol was a member of Gus Malzahn’s final signing class in 2020. The class has since broken apart, as a majority of the class has transferred to other programs.
Out of Auburn’s 27 signees from 2020, only 10 remain on the Tigers’ roster. Several key members of the class include Ladarius Tennison and JJ Pegues, who are currently at Ole Miss, and Kobe Hudson, who has since reunited at UCF with Malzahn. Tank Bigsby was the headliner of the class, and names such as Wesley Steiner, Cam Riley, and Killian Zierer remain on the roster.
Tisdol is the second former Tiger to find a new home this week, joining defensive lineman Jeffrey M'ba, who announced his commitment to Purdue.
