AUBURN, Ala. -

According to Kendall Rogers of Perfect Game, Auburn is set to hire former Atlanta Braves first baseman Greg Norton as its newest hitting coach.

Norton bounced around with six MLB teams before finishing his career in Atlanta in 2009. Since then, he's managed the New Orleans Zephyrs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Miami Marlins.

Currently, Norton is a minor league hitting coordinator in the Marlins' system.

Norton played his college ball at Oklahoma, signing with the Chicago White Sox after his junior season in 1993.
