AUBURN, Ala. -

Auburn was back at spring practice Friday, meaning it was the first time coaches faced the media after Selena Roberts' article on the 2010 Tiger team was released.

Gus Malzahn was not scheduled to speak Friday, only coordinators Rhett Lashlee and Ellis Johnson.

Predictably, they dodged questions about the article.

"Our administration is handling that," said Lashlee. "My job is to coach football. That is all I'm really worried about. We had practice this morning. We have a big time coach's clinic going on. I'm getting ready for that. That's all I can deal with."

"I don't know," Johnson said. "I don't know anything about it. I would have no knowledge about it. People above my pay grade are handling that."

After practice, Auburn director of strategic communications Jack Smith released the letter sent by Roberts to the athletic department.

It reads, "I'm working on a piece about the armed robbery charges involving Mosley, Kitchens, Goodwin and Mcneil. After interviewing more than a dozen people about that night, I had some questions regarding Auburn University and former coach Gene Chizik's role in the case. I'm requesting an interview with Jay Jacobs about the information I received."
