AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gene Chizik says Maryland might
have reached out to Tigers offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn about
its vacant head coaching job.
Chizik told reporters on Tuesday, "I have not talked to anybody
personally, but there are possibilities of contact."
Maryland fired coach Ralph Friedgen last week and there has been
speculation that former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach would be the
prime candidate to replace him.
Malzahn was a candidate for the Vanderbilt job, but decided to
stay with Auburn. He did not show up for a previously scheduled
session with reporters after Tuesday's practice.
