Malzahn gets to say War Eagle, again!
A year after leaving Auburn University, as the offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2011, for the head coaching position at Arkansas State, Gus Malzahn is back on loveliest village on the plains. Malzahn returns with his fast-paced, no huddle offensive style that helped Auburn win the national championship in 2010.
Malzahn replaces his former boss, Gene Chizik, who was fired one day after an embarrassing 49-0 loss to in-state rival Alabama to complete a 3-9 season.
“We are tremendously excited that Gus Malzahn will be our next head football coach,” athletic director Jay Jacobs said. “Coach Malzahn was the clear unanimous choice of our search committee, and I am pleased that Dr. Gogue has accepted our recommendation. This is great day for Auburn football and Auburn University.”
Many of Auburn’s top recruits, including linebacker Reuben Foster out of Auburn High School, has already voiced their opinions on the hiring of Malzahn. Foster went on to say “I am still all in at Auburn University.”
Welcome back to Auburn, Gus! Now let’s get ready to bring home our third National Title.
