Auburn football announced today that Gus Malzahn has been relieved of his duties as head coach and that defensive coordinator Kevin Steele will be the interim head coach for the Tigers. Don’t shed too many tears for Malzahn, who will reportedly collect a $21.5 million buyout — a total that as of this past October was 12th-highest in the nation.
This was Malzahn’s eighth season at Auburn. The Tigers were 6-4 this season, with losses against Alabama, Texas A&M, South Carolina, and Georgia. Overall, Malzahn went 68-35 at Auburn.
If you were Auburn AD Allen Greene, who would you be going after for this job?

Urban meyer is going to Auburn. His wife just bought a house here. He has been here for two weeks.
Kevin Sumlin would be the perfect “woke” option.
How about the guy from Vandy and he can bring the kicker with him?
If you take away the easy out of conference wins power teams buy which is say 2.5 a year at least for see teams since they have 4 out of conference games, that leaves him with a 48-35 record. He’s ok, nothing special. 6-4 is basically what he really is year in and year out.
Mason Baller…. why would you need to “laugh your black ass off” when it comes to simple commentary about the future of an Auburn football coach? Every thread of your existence has to deal with race…. why?
That’s what race baiters do…
FREEZE right there mister
Mason Baller… As someone who lived in the south as an ADULT in the 1960’s, I can assure you Reverend King wants his moniker back, he wasn’t a racist!
Matt Campbell or Hugh Freeze.
I think it might be too early for Sarah Fuller to be the HC of an SEC school, but she definitely deserves an interview and an award for how good that interview will be.
Think its time to goad Hugh Freeze back into a power 5 job
Not enough talk on here about a $21.5M buyout to get rid of a guy. Auburn’s a public university, so that’s tax money getting flushed down the toilet. State legislatures around the country need to get together and ban these kinds of contracts from being instituted in the first place.
Boosters donations pay for it
Malzahn is overrated and deserved to be fired 3 years ago. Auburn’s last two coaches were shitty hires plain and simple.
Lane Kiffin if they were smart. It’d annoy Satan to no end.
