Gymnastics coach Jeff Thompson leaving for Penn State

After 11 years as Auburn's gymnastics coach, Jeff Thompson has left for the same position at Penn State.

Thompson, a two-time SEC Coach of the Year, led the Tigers to the NCAA Regionals eight consecutive years. His teams have been the No. 2 seed twice in the past three years.

Thompson's wife, Rachelle, who has been an Auburn assistant since 2002 and an associate head coach since 2006, will join him with the Nittany Lions as an assistant.

"Rachelle and I have never been more excited in our lives," Thompson said in a Penn State release. "Penn State has a long and storied history and we look forward to doing our part in the writing of the next chapter in the gymnastics record book."
