Less than 24 hours before SEC Media Days, Auburn announced quarterback Nick Marshall would not be in attendance. Still, there's no word on a punishment for the second year quarterback.
On Monday, Gus Malzahn spoke on ESPN saying a decision on Marshall's punishment will come in "a short period of time."
"He understands he made a mistake. He has been remorseful. Up until that point, he had been a model student, citizen, all of the above, but he made a mistake, Malzahn said on ESPN's Numbers Never Lie. "He's our quarterback. The quarterback is the face of our program, so he'll have some things he'll have to pay for. I have not decided that for sure right now, but it will be in a short period of time I'll have that figured out."
Marshall was cited for possession of Marijuana and illegal window tinting on July 11th.
Malzahn also spoke about his confidence in backup quarterback Jeremy Johnson. Johnson played in two games last year and earned SEC Freshman of the Week.
The Tigers begin fall camp on July 31st.
