Gus Malzahn Directly Responds To Leaving Auburn For Arkansas
Gus Malzahn directly responds to leaving Auburn for Arkansas during a recent interview.
Malzahn, 54, is linked to fresh new job openings more than any other good football coach in the game today.
Despite the fact that his Tigers are consistently solid in the very rough SEC, all parties involved constantly seem to feel like either Malzahn should leave Auburn or Auburn should fire Malzahn.
It is genuinely odd.
When the Florida State job opened up, Malzahn was linked to it. When the Rutgers job opened up, Malzahn was linked to it.
And naturally, when Chad Morris was fired last week, Malzahn’s name was immediately floated as someone who could replace him at Arkansas.
On Tuesday, Malzahn was asked point blank during a press conference whether he had any interest in becoming the next Razorbacks head coach.
Auburn HC Gus Malzahn asked about the Arkansas vacancy: “I love Auburn. I love my players. We’ve got a bright future here. Nothing’s changed.”

“I love Auburn,” he replied.
“I love my players. We’ve got a bright future here. Nothing’s changed.”
Leaving Auburn for Arkansas would obviously make no sense whatsoever.
Yes, the expectations would be lower, but there is a reason for that. It is much harder to win there than it is at Auburn.
If Malzahn leaves it will either be to an easier conference or a better program within the SEC – but definitely not to a bottom-level school like Arkansas.
