Needless to say, this hire should happen quickly
If I were in Gus’ shoes, maybe in his last year at Auburn, I might hire Art Briles and try to keep the flames under his butt under control. If he could convince his AD to go along.
Otherwise, the son might give him the best shot at a strong offense this year. Especially with his new ex-Baylor QB just signed and enrolled.
Neither Briles is going to be hired there. Based on Malzahn’s track record of hiring people who have ties to his past, I would guess Chip Lindsey or Eliah Drinkwitz get the job.
