A welcome change: Gus Malzahn pleased with Auburn’s quarterback depth

Since the end of Nick Marshall’s time on the Plains, Auburn fans have fretted over quarterbacks. Tigers coach Gus Malzahn thinks spring practice may have ended those woes.

Malzahn said the Tigers’ strength in depth at the position improved during spring practice in an interview Thursday with Birmingham radio station 99.1 The Game.

“If there’s one thing I’m pleased with, it’s probably the depth at that position right now,” Malzahn said. “We left spring with some quality depth, some good competition, and competition brings out the best in everyone.”

In addition to Baylor transfer Jarrett Stidham and 2016 starter Sean White, true freshman Malik Willis staked a claim for playing time.
