Auburn Tigers fire coach Gus Malzahn after eight seasons

Auburn fired head football coach Gus Malzahn, the school announced on Sunday.

The decision comes less than 24 hours after the Tigers finished the regular season with a 6-4 record after beating Mississippi State 24-10 on Saturday.

"After evaluating the state of the Auburn football program, we've decided that it was time to make a change in leadership," said Auburn Director of Athletics Allen Greene in a statement. "We appreciate everything that Gus did for the program over the last eight seasons. We will begin a search immediately for a coach that can help the Auburn program consistently compete at the highest level.
