Auburn is expected to hire Gus Malzahn as its 26th head football coach and will maintain ties to its first national championship since 1957, the Opelika-Auburn News has confirmed.
Malzahn was the second assistant coach Gene Chizik hired at Auburn, serving as the Tigers’ offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2011. He was named Arkansas State’s head coach last offseason, the first time he was ever hired as a head coach at the college level.
