New Auburn coach Gene Chizik has reached out to the Big 12 to help fill his staff at his new school.

The Oklahoman reports that OSU assistant head coach/running backs coach Curtis Luper will join the staff of Chizik, who served as head coach at Iowa State for two seasons before heading to Auburn.

Luper's role at his new job is undefined. Chizik has already hired former Tulsa offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn for that job on his staff.

The Cowboys already are looking for a defensive coordiantor after Tim Beckman left Coach Mike Gundy's staff for the head coaching job at Toledo.
