Auburn football: Malzahn prepares to take on former team Saturday in Jordan-Hare

The last thing Gus Malzahn wants Saturday to be about is himself. He understands why it’s a storyline; any time a coach faces a former team, it’s a topic that will be rehashed until seconds before kickoff. Of course, Malzahn is in a situation that is strange even in the wacky world of collegiate athletics. Saturday, he’ll be coaching against a non-conference foe in Arkansas State that he was leading just one season ago.
