Gus Malzahn was the head coach at Auburn for eight seasons before being fired after going 6-4 in 2020. He has since moved on to UCF, where he is 8-2 this season and 17-6 overall in two seasons there.

Though Malzahn could harbor some ill feelings towards Auburn for firing him, he has nothing but positive things to say about the Tigers.

Malzahn was interviewed by The Athletic’s Chris Vannini, who asked the coach for his thoughts on what has transpired at Auburn. The Tigers hired Bryan Harsin to replace Malzahn, fired him this season, and replaced him with Cadillac Williams on an interim basis. Williams had been hired by Malzahn as a running backs coach in 2019.
