Auburn football: Gus Malzahn reflects on first year as Tigers' head coach

AUBURN, Ala. — On Dec. 4 last year, Gus Malzahn arrived in Auburn to take over the Tigers’ head coaching position. One year later, he has Auburn back in the mix for the national title. Assuming the reins of a team that went 3-9 last season, many may be surprised that Malzahn led Auburn to an 11-1 record and an SEC West title in his first year on the job.
