AUBURN, Ala. After filling four of the spots on his support staff, Gus Malzahn said the hiring is done.
But he was quite pleased with the four coaches he's brought into the fold over the last month. One of those was Bobby Bentley, a longtime friend of Malzahn who was formerly the coach at Byrnes High School in Duncan, S.C.
In Bentley's new role, he'll work with the Tigers' quarterbacks.
"We go way back. Ive got a lot of respect for him," Malzahn said. "Hes one of the better high school coaches in the country. Hell be an excellent college coach. Ive tried to hire him in the past at different places. Were glad hes with us. Hell be a very successful guy."
Malzahn was equally excited about two other additions: Travis Williams and Doug Goodwin.
"Travis is a former Auburn player that loves Auburn," Malzahn said. "I was fortunate enough, when I was a coordinator here, he was our GA. He really is a sharp guy, so were excited to have him. Doug is a guy thats one of the top high school coaches in the state of Alabama. Hes got a great feel for the Alabama high school coaches. Hes got great respect, and hes a good person as well as Travis. Were happy that we got both those guys."
