Mike Norvell was just announced as the new head coach at Florida State and he's wasting no time making some big-time hires for his coaching staff. This isn't a good thing for Auburn fans, though.

According to multiple reports, Norvell has hired Auburn's Kenny Dillingham to be his new offensive coordinator in Tallahassee.

Dillingham and Norvell are quite familiar with one another, as Dillingham was his offensive coordinator at Memphis last season before leaving for Auburn this campaign. Now, with Norvell at the helm of FSU, the rising Dillingham has decided to leave the SEC for the ACC to once again work under his mentor.

As reported by Brandon Marcello of 247Sports, Dillingham will be leaving the Tigers immediately to get going in his new role with FSU.

With one major hire out of the way, look for Norvell to keep adding to his new coaching staff. There's plenty of buzz surrounding Florida State right now. Finally, Seminoles fans have reason to smile.
