Wednesday was Nix's first appearance in front of the media since head coach Chan Gailey gave him offensive autonomy following spring practice.
The 34-year-old former Auburn quarterback served as offensive coordinator for the last two seasons, but Gailey retained playcalling responsibilities. Gailey, however, handed over control of the offense during spring practice and announced the change at the end of drills.
"There is a definate change for me," Nix said. "I'm working with the same players and with the same team, yes. But I gave suggestions before. Now I have to make decisions. It's a huge change."
