Mitch Mustain and Houston Nutt Talk 2006 With AL.com


Brandon Marcello has been writing a series of excellent articles chronicling Gus Malzahn's rise from his first high school job in the Arkansas Delta to becoming Auburn's head coach. In this piece, he takes a look at Malzahn's one season on the Razorback sidelines, and spoke directly with Mustain and Nutt. While this is at least the third time Mustain has gone on the record this year regarding that season (following the documentary and interview with us), this is the first time Nutt has spoken much about that time in several years.

Gus Malzahn vs. Mike Leach


This article compares Leach and Malzahn and concludes that it's too close to call who's better. The article is referring to Maryland's coach search that ended in the hiring of Randy Edsall so it doesn't apply directly to Ole Miss, but it's still interesting.

WaPo: James Franklin to Be Next Vanderbilt Head Coach


The Washington Post is at it again with the Vanderbilt head coaching search, this time reporting that it's Marlyand OC James Franklin who will be Vanderbilt's next head football coach. If it comes to pass, that means the SEC will have taken the nation's only two head coaches in waiting away from the schools they were supposed to take over. Anchor of Gold is on top of the story, and the denizens there don't seem wowed by the hire. Honestly, I wouldn't be either after being told erroneously that Gus Malzahn was going to be the next coach.

Herb Hand Talks Gus Malzahn, Chip Kelly


Vanderbilt offensive line coach Herb Hand knows the two offensive minds in the national title game better than perhaps anyone. He worked with Gus Malzahn for two seasons and helped teach Chip Kelly about spread offense football. He has some interesting things to say about these two guys. Also of note is that three of the last six national title game participants have been adherents to the hurry-up offense: both teams this year and 2008 Oklahoma. Given how much coaches tend to be copycats, this could be a sign of big things to come.

Malzahn Tells Louisiana Tech He's Not Interested


As expected, Louisiana Tech officials (through a search firm) reached out to Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn today to gauge his interest in their head coaching job. Tiger fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Malzahn told them he's happy at Auburn. "My family and I love Auburn,'' Malzahn said in a statement Monday. "Coach Chizik is an outstanding coach to work for, and Auburn is a great place to be both professionally and personally. "I'm excited about the future of this program and helping Auburn build on the foundation that Coach Chizik has established the last 13 months."

If at first you don't succeed ...


Having fired spread-minded offense coordinator Tony Franklin, Auburn has now decided to bring in spread-minded offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn. What's troubling here is not necessarily the firing of Franklin or the hiring of Malzahn, whose Tulsa offenses have certainly been dynamic; it's that whoever is in charge in Auburn seems to have no overarching idea on where the Tigers should go. It might help if we knew who was in charge at Auburn, but we really don't.
