Developing: Gus Malzahn gets Auburn job

((ht: auburn.247sports.com))

Okay. The carousel is spinning fast this Tuesday afternoon.

Reports have surfaced that Auburn has found THEIR new head coach. That man is former offensive coordinator and Arkansas St. head coach Gus Malzahn.

**Updated (slightly)--This is verified now by multiple outlets**

Malzahn of course is very familiar to the Auburn faithful after 3 seasons of success running his high-speed, no-huddle, spread offense. That success translated this year to Arkansas State where Malzahn went 9-3 and won the Sun Belt Championship in his first season as a head coach on the college level.

He of course replacs the departed Gene Chizik, who despite an enormous payout, was fired after Auburn went 3-9 and winless during this past football season. We might also add the school appears to again be in the NCAA crosshairs as they are being investigated for alleged recruiting violations.

By the way Chizik is talking to Florida State about becoming their new defensive coordinator.
