Auburn’s Malzahn wins Bryant Award

HOUSTON (AP) — Auburn’s Gus Malzahn has won the Paul “Bear” Bryant College Coach of the Year Award.

Malzahn led a remarkable turnaround in his first year at Auburn, taking the Tigers to the national title game a year after they went 3-9.

Auburn came up just short in the national championship, with Florida State scoring a touchdown with 13 seconds left to pick up a 34-31 win.

Malzahn, who like Bryant is from Arkansas, says that growing up Bryant was “the man” and he is honored to be associated with an award with his name.
