AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Former Auburn tailback Carnell Williams has returned to his alma mater as running backs coach.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn announced Williams' hiring Wednesday.
Williams was the 2005 NFL Rookie of the Year after being picked fifth overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As a senior, he led Auburn to an undefeated record.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham has put his NFL draft preparations on hold, hoping to help the Tigers get their first bowl victory since 2015.
Coach Gus Malzahn plans to make it worth Stidham's time now that he is sticking around for the Music City Bowl against Purdue on Friday. That means playing his quarterback.
"Bottom line is we're playing to win the game," Malzahn said Thursday.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Gus Malzahn is returning to his play calling roots — and to Auburn for another season.
The coach addressed talk about his job security after the team's first bowl practice Thursday. He also expressed enthusiasm about reclaiming the role as offensive play caller that propelled him to that position in the first place.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has hired Kenny Dillingham as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator, but is returning to calling the Tigers' plays himself.
Malzahn called the offensive plays during his first three seasons as the Tigers' coach. Dillingham, whose hiring was announced late Sunday, held the same duties at Memphis.
Memphis ranks fourth nationally in total offense, third in rushing offense and seventh in scoring this season.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham is skipping his senior season to enter the NFL draft.
The junior announced his decision Tuesday but plans to stay for the Tigers' Music City Bowl matchup with Purdue on Dec. 28.
Stidham started all 26 games the past two seasons for Auburn after transferring from Baylor. He was a second-team AP All-Southeastern Conference pick in his first year as a starter and ranked ninth nationally in completion percentage.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — It was Senior Day inside Jordan-Hare Stadium, but it wasn't just the graduating Tigers dominating in Auburn's home finale.
Seth Williams caught five passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, Kam Martin ran for 116 yards and Auburn's defense pitched a shutout in a 53-0 victory over Liberty on Saturday.
Auburn (7-4) held a pass-happy Liberty (4-6) offense in check, recording its first FBS shutout in 10 years (34-0 win over Louisiana Monroe in 2008).
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Just when Auburn's offense needed a pick-me-up, here comes Liberty.
The Tigers (6-4) continued to sputter offensively in a loss at No. 5 Georgia. Now, they face Liberty (4-5), which is allowing 39 points and 508.8 yards per game. So it at least shapes up to be a more promising matchup.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn defensive end Nick Coe will miss Saturday's game against Liberty with an unspecified injury.
Tigers coach Gus Malzahn said Tuesday that Coe has "got kind of a wrist-type situation." He says he's not ready to speculate on Coe's status for the regular season finale against No. 1 Alabama.
Coe leads the Tigers with seven sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss. He has also forced two fumbles.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn Tigers have rescued a season from the brink and helped make sure coach Gus Malzahn's job is safe in the process.
Athletic director Allen Greene said Tuesday that Malzahn isn't going anywhere after this season.
"He's our coach for the future," Greene said. "He'll be the coach next year. He's already proven he can get through adversity."
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — A national championship was on the line the last time Jimbo Fisher and Gus Malzahn stalked opposing sidelines.
This time, they'll settle for forging a strong November.
Fisher and No. 25 Texas A&M (5-3, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) hope to rebound Saturday against Auburn (5-3, 2-3) and Malzahn, who's trying to salvage a disappointing season.
OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — If there were any questions whether the Auburn Tigers would be able to bounce back from consecutive disappointing losses, head coach Gus Malzahn figured they were answered in a 31-16 win over Mississippi on Saturday.
"We went through a storm last week with all the negativity that goes with it," Malzahn said. "It either divides — and I think a lot of people root for that — or it brings you together."
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn's hopes for a repeat SEC West championship have vanished along with its national ranking.
Now, the Tigers are scrambling to keep the wheels from falling off a once-promising season. Auburn (4-3, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) is trying to rebound from back-to-back losses at Mississippi State and Tennessee and start to reverse a rapid fall from a No. 8 ranking.
Coming off a division title that included a victory against its archrival, Auburn faced the prospect of losing its coach.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Circumstances have changed significantly since the last time Tennessee's Jeremy Pruitt matched his defense against Gus Malzahn and Auburn's offense.
The Volunteers and 21st-ranked Tigers face off Saturday with each nursing more humble aspirations than national and Southeastern Conference championships.
Auburn and Mississippi State are teams that still harbor hopes of challenging Alabama for the Southeastern Conference Western Division title.
That probably won't happen unless the Tigers and Bulldogs can fix their offense.
Both the eighth-ranked Tigers and Bulldogs have struggled to move the ball and score points this season, especially against good competition. Auburn (4-1, 1-1 SEC) ranks 12th out of 14 teams in the league in total offense with about 376 yards per game.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn Tigers can usually be counted on for a strong running game with tailbacks routinely churning out 1,000-yard seasons and 100-yard games.
Now, an unproductive ground game is the biggest concern for Gus Malzahn and the eighth-ranked Tigers going into Saturday night's game at Mississippi State.
It's even more of a pressing issue with leading rusher JaTarvious Whitlow and two starting offensive linemen battling injuries.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Jarrett Stidham threw for 245 yards and two touchdowns and No. 10 Auburn beat Southern Miss 24-13 on Saturday night in a game disrupted for nearly three hours by lightning.
Playing behind a shuffled offensive line, Stidham completed 19 of 33 attempts, including touchdowns of 46 yards to Seth Williams and 2 yards to Chandler Cox, while enduring three sacks.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn Tigers are still trying to get their offense going, but that won't likely be an easy task against Southern Miss.
Quarterback Jarrett Stidham and the 10th-ranked Tigers (3-1) face a Top 10 defense when the Golden Eagles (2-1) visit on Saturday.
AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Gus Malzahn and Chad Morris joined the ranks of Southeastern Conference head coaches after winning three state titles apiece in high school and transitioning to college as offensive coordinators.
The two friends have something else in common: Both could really use a win.
