What a difference four years and one 2-10 season can make.
Last night, a number of Auburn supporters showed up at the local airport to greet new head coach and former offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn. Needless to say, they were happy with his return.
Here was the response at the airport when AD Jay Jacobs touched down in Auburn after hiring Gene Chizik, Malzahn’s old boss, back in 2008.
Now, what’s funny is that Chizik went on to win a BCS title and he and Jacobs were hailed as heroes and geniuses. After the nosedive this past season things changed just a tad.
And now Malzahn gets to enter the Auburn kingdom like a long lost son returning home.
