AUBURN, Ala. -- Rodney Garner is best known for his skills as a recruiter, but he admits he’s having difficulty convincing his daughters to get on board with his recent life choices.

Four of Garner’s six daughters were born in Athens -- where he spent the last 15 seasons as Georgia’s defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator -- so uprooting the family to accept a job at his alma mater, Auburn, did not come without opposition.

At his introductory press conference at Auburn on Friday afternoon, Garner recounted a conversation with his 10-year-old daughter Kai from earlier that morning when he reminded her of their trip to watch senior nose guard John Jenkins at a 2010 junior college all-star game in Gulfport, Miss.
