Don't know who the new guy might be, but the sentiment over on ITAT is that most Barners think it was a mistake to change offensive philosophy. I wouldn't be surprised if the new guy is a spread/HUNH type guy.
It probably would be better for their program because there is no way they are going to be able to go head to head with CNS and "beat him at his own game."
I mean you know that they understand the deal, that Dye & his bunch still runs things & that you can't pick your asst coaches either. That your every move is spied upon.
You may be right it may be just pure greed or the belief that they can change anything.
But history has shown that the Head football coach is just an employee.
Couple of thoughts...Malzahn inherited a talented team at AS, I believe they went 10-3 in 2011. They are giving up, on D this year, 27.7 ppg (granted,Oregon and Nebraska skewed the numbers a bit), so I'm not convinced of his abilities on that side of the ball. I hope he goes to the barn...his offense didn't beat Bama in 10, Scam did (with fortuitous help from their defense).

I'm not saying it's all about the money, but it IS about his career. If you have a chance to go to an SEC program from Arky State, you prob have to take it. If he has a choice between Arkansas and Awbarn, well now you make your decision based on other conditions, but if the Barn is his only choice, I think he goes. Just my opinion!!
MOBILE, Alabama -- Gus Malzahn is running his own football program now at Arkansas State. But that doesn't mean he's oblivious to what has happened atAuburn since he left the Plains.
Malzahn spent the previous three seasons as the Tigers' offensive coordinator, including Auburn's undefeated 2010 campaign. This year, the Tigers head into the Iron Bowl with a 3-8 record.
"I'm very close to a lot of the players and some of the coaches," Malzahn said on Monday night, "and I just wish them nothing but the best and, hopefully, they can finish this thing."
Later, he said, "I'm hurting for them."
Oh, Susanna. Oh, don't you cry for me, for I come from Alabama with a banjeaux on my knee. G'wan to Louisiana my true love for to see.
I wouldn't take anything from Malzahn being in Mobile yesterday. There are college football coaches speaking at various events in Mobile every week of the college football season.
The group that Malzahn was speaking to is tied in with the GoDaddy.com Bowl and Arkansas State is the leading candidate to represent the Sun Belt Conference in that bowl game this year. Malzahn, Barry Alvarez, Ron Zook, Ellis Johnson, Howard Schnellenberger, Joey Jones, Bobby Bowden, etc. have spoken to that group this year.
What color was the tie he was wearing? This would be very telling.

"We always talk about playing 60 minutes but this is a 60-10 game: the 60 minutes of the game and the 10 minutes in the locker room after the game that you remember for the rest of your life."

The record will show that the guy with the funny mustache has done an excellent job everywhere he's been. Georgia's defense fell off the end of the earth after he stopped coaching it. If he stays at Auburn, he'll turn that defense around.
