McCallie was an assistant coach at Auburn from 1988-92, and was coach Joe Ciampi's ace recruiter during those Final Four years. There was talk of her returning to Auburn after Ciampi retired after the 2003-04 season, but the Tigers eventually hired Nell Fortner.
Speaking of Fortner, she got some seriously bad news today. Top assistant Sue Guevara took the job at Central Michigan, robbing Auburn of its best Xs-and-Os coach. Considering the Tigers' biggest problems this year seemed to center around a lack of Xs -and-Os excellence, well, Fortner better start working the phones immediately.
