If you've watched Auburn play, you're well aware that the offense has absolutely no identity. Quarterback Sean White is a serviceable passer but can't run which severely limits the playbook. John Franklin offers a wildcat option but it's so obvious opposing teams have little trouble stopping it. And in a new development, Gus Malzahn has reportedly
to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee. It's almost as if Malzahn is trying to distance himself from a sinking ship. In three games against Clemson, Texas A&M, and LSU, War Eagle failed to top 20 points.
“I have been really leaning towards that for about two weeks now,” Malzahn said. “I turned it over to him and I thought he did a fantastic job. I need to be the head coach and that’s what I am going to be. I am looking forward to Rhett building this offense.”
“We need to score more touchdowns," Malzahn said. "That’s it. When we have opportunities to catch them, we’ve got to catch them. And when you have opportunities to run it in, you’ve got to run it in. That will be something moving forward. I’m not looking at it right now. I’m going to enjoy this one. But that’s something we are definitely going to have to improve on.”
