Gus Malzahn to Arkansas State


Not sure if anyone in the braintrust caught this yet, but I think it's incredible: Gus Malzahn is leaving his OC position at Auburn to be head coach at Arkansas State. The same Gus Malzahn who was thisclose to being Vanderbilt's head coach just a year ago is now filling the shoes of Hugh Freeze, and is expected to make just $850,000 per year instead of the $1.3 million reasons he had to stay at Auburn.

This is weird. I know I was pretty disappointed that Vanderbilt couldn't land Malzahn last year, but it turns out, obvs, that David Williams made the right choice in hiring James Franklin. Stuff like this does make you wonder, though...what's wrong with that guy? Why leave a comfortable spot (apparently) at Auburn to take the reigns of a [/looks up conference] Sun Belt team heading to the GoDaddy.com Bowl? Seems like he either missed a golden opportunity to get a good HC job at a Big Six school or he just really likes....Arkansas? I guess?
