It's official: Malzahn is Auburn's offensive coordinator

Auburn confirmed Sunday afternoon that it has hired Gus Malzahn as its offensive coordinator. The Birmingham News and others reported the hiring earlier today.

"This is an exciting opportunity to coach at Auburn, get involved with the Auburn family and work for Coach Chizik," Malzahn said in a statement released by Auburn. "I can't wait to get to Auburn and get started."
