Unfortunately, Gus Malzahn is still the head coach of the Auburn Tigers.
Gus Malzahn is an average to below-average coach with a high school offense. Despite good recruiting, he has routinely failed to develop talent and deliver results. Players, especially skill position players, have routinely regressed under Gus Malzahn in subsequent seasons. His only success has come from transfers and inherited talent; his two best seasons at Auburn (2013 and 2017) have come with transfers at quarterback.
Gus Malzahn's failure to develop talent has lead to an increasing lack of depth. Gus has had eight years to recruit the players he needs and develop them to be what he needs them to be. He hasn't done it, plain and simple, and there is no reason to believe that is going to change. All the while, since 2014, every Gus Malzahn season at Auburn has had at least four losses.
Gus Malzahn has had eight years to deliver results and has not done so. Auburn continues to fall further behind the rest of the SEC and her traditional rivals, and further into mediocrity. And yet, somehow, Gus Malzahn is the 6th highest paid coach in all of college football?
High school coach. High school offense. High school results.
Don't believe us? Look at the numbers.
As of Sunday, November 22nd, 2020, Gus Malzahn is:

I get the sense that the emotional rollercoaster is starting to get boring. It's a natural occurrence that tends to happen when a coach has been at a school as long as Malzahn has been without winning numerous titles.

The Auburn offense is a mess and I don’t know how this is an easily fixable situation. You start doing the math and you start saying thank goodness for the head official in the Arkansas game or otherwise, we would be talking about a dire situation right now. You have to search three or four years back to see a Gus Malzahn offense working consistently.
There has to be a breaking point. Saturday was not the tipping point. It was close. It was bad, but it was not unexpected.
- Brian Stultz
There are no ifs, ands or buts about it after Saturday’s embarrassing loss to South Carolina in Columbia: Gus Malzahn has got to go, and for the sake of Auburn football, that decision needs to happen sooner than later.
Yet Malzahn will never admit that maybe he isn’t the right person for the job. He’s still the smartest man in the room despite opposing defensive coordinators and coaches now laughing at him. Heck, the Tigers realistically should be 1-3 at best.
Let it sink in that while Malzahn has been watching, a lot of other SEC teams have improved in strides. Let it sink in that once defenses caught on to his system, Malzahn refused to adjust until completely giving up control to a coach who led Arkansas to exactly zero wins in two seasons as a head coach.
This is an Auburn program with College Football Playoff expectations. And, now, three weeks into the season, it is mediocre. At best. This is vintage Auburn under Malzahn, the reason Gus Bus occupancy is always in transition. Auburn’s wild rollercoaster has returned. And most fans just want to get off.- Doug Segrest
Changing coordinators is not the answer. Sweeping the deck chairs off the Titanic doesn’t solve the problem. You’re still going to hit the iceberg, and I think Auburn is heading for an iceberg.- Paul Finebaum
Gus Malzahn let his team down.- Barrett Sallee
Auburn had a chance, at least on paper, to make a game of it. Malzahn lit that paper on fire and threw it in the trash can.

Auburn ranks 12th in the SEC and 64th (out of 77 teams) nationally in scoring offense at 21.8 points per game.
Being an Auburn fan, it's weird how Alabama's QBs get better every year. What's that like? Is it as nice as it seems? Also, related note, what's it like to make meaningful 2nd half adjustments?— Josh Moon (@Josh_Moon) October 18, 2020

Ball game. The wolves are at the door for the Malzahn era. That’s just a rough game all around.— gotchya and grabass purveyors (@CollegeAndMag) October 17, 2020
Gus Malzahn isn’t the answer at Auburn anymore. He’s a good guy and a good coach, but it’s just stale now. Auburn’s program shouldn’t be in this poor of shape in his eighth year.— Nathan Deal (@NattyD13) October 17, 2020
Time to find a new coach.
This is so embarrassing. If you’re ok with this in year 8 of Gus Malzahn then you’re the problem.— Tank Bigsby Fan (@BigBarnerBrand) October 17, 2020
Auburn loses by 8 points after throwing three interceptions that turned into three touchdowns — including two in a first half in which the defense was playing well when it had field position.— Justin Ferguson (@JFergusonAU) October 17, 2020

Auburn is 2-2 and extremely fortunate to not be 1-3.

It's The COVID Season and everything is stupid and weird, everywhere, all over, but it's just so damn hard to watch that game and feel like Auburn's coaching is making the most of its offensive talent. Or coming within the same zipcode of making the most of its offensive talent— Jerry Hinnen (@JerryHinnen) October 10, 2020

Yep.— Justin Ferguson (@JFergusonAU) October 4, 2020
And the last time Auburn scored more than 21 points on the road against a top-10 team was... the 2010 Iron Bowl. https://t.co/mcx8x8KS9m
