AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- The Auburn Tigers are entering preseason camp with a new coach but the same old quarterback situation.

The Tigers are seeking a new starting quarterback for the fourth straight year, hoping for another Cam Newton but probably willing to settle for a steady Chris Todd type. They open camp on Friday with four players vying for the job.

Junior college transfer Nick Marshall appears to be the favorite but freshman Jeremy Johnson and onetime starters Kiehl Frazier and Jonathan Wallace are competing to operate new coach Gus Malzahn's no-huddle offense.

Tight end C.J. Uzomah thinks the quarterback battle is "as wide open as it has ever been."

Receiver Quan Bray said Thursday that Johnson and Marshall have "made great impressions" in summer workouts.
