    Auburn hires Gus Malzahn to replace Gene Chizik

    Gus Malzahn will be named Auburn’s next head coach, according to multiple reports.

    Malzahn, who led Arkansas State to the Sun Belt title in his first season with the Red Wolves, was Auburn’s offensive coordinator for three seasons, including the 2010 BCS national championship-winning season.

    He is expected to arrive in Auburn tonight, AL.com reported.

    He replaces Gene Chizik, who was fired Nov. 25 after Auburn completed a 3-9 season and went 0-8 in SEC games. One of Chizik’s first moves after being hired to replace Tommy Tuberville in December 2008 was to hire Malzahn, whose offenses at Tulsa and Arkansas lit up scoreboards.

    Seems like a lateral move to me, but I don't have intimate knowledge of the situation.

    For Auburn or for Malzahn? I think Malzahn is a better head coach than Chizik, but maybe not much better.
