MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - It’s a new year and there’s a new coach for the Auburn Tigers. His name: Gus Malzahn. Malzahn is no stranger to the program – he was the head assistant in 2010 for Auburn’s national championship team. After a disappointing 2012 – Gus Malzahn has taken over the reigns to turn things around – and on the final day of camp – Malzahn seems happy with the progress of his team.
“Last day of fall camp, when I look back at camp I feel like we did improve, I feel like we were able to cover all out situations, I feel like we were able to put our guys in a position to evaluate,” said Malzahn.
There’s a lot of work to be done to get the tigers back to dominating the SEC and Malzahn believes it can happen.
“We’re not there yet, but we do have more depth than we’ve had in the past. We’re getting close, we’ve got those 7 guys that we’ve been kind of mixing and matching, the good thing is, like I’ve said before, we have very quality depth.”
Malzhan named a starting quarterback, Nick Marshall and is confident he’s the play-maker auburn needs for success.
“Since we’ve named him the starter, he’s been a lot more urgent and each practice he’s taking more lead and the thing about it is, the offensive guys are listening to him so, that’s very important.”
