My completely uninformed conjecture -

Kirby told Auburn that he wanted complete control, to bring in his people, his own staff, and Auburn said no.

Close but not quite... We were willing to give him control and his own staff, but... One guy screwed things up.

Auburn will be a proving ground for Malzahn.  If he proves to be good enough to beat Saban and win the SEC, then he can come home.

Great hire Auburn. His stock has been rising ever since he left Fayettevile at an exponential rate. He's young as hell and will get better and better.

Too bad our selfish boosters with ego issues can't see it and hire someone with an unlimited ceiling that would crawl over the Sahara to get here.

Gus has the distinct feeling as a "Plan B" hire.

This means we get to keep Jeremy Johnson.

He's 6'6", fast and has a cannon.

He also has a frame to put on 30 more lbs. So be prepared for MANY Cam comparisons.

Seems like the other Auburn fans don't seem to like this hire, but I for one am excited because Chizik didn't let Malzahn run the offense he wanted to the full potential and know we can really see what it's supposed to do. I'm excited and I believe he will prove to be a whole lot better than Chizik. So what we didn't get Smart? At least we will be able to score points again until this past season and hopefully keep most of our recruits.

Serious question: why did AU need a "search committee" to end up with Malzahn?
