AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says Auburn has hired Gus Malzahn as head coach.
The person said Malzahn will be introduced later Tuesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school had not announced the hire.
Malzahn was the offensive coordinator during the Tigers' national championship run in 2010, but spent last season at Arkansas State in his first college head coaching position.
He led the Red Wolves to a 9-3 record, a Sun Belt Conference title and a berth in the GoDaddy.com Bowl.
Malzahn returns with his fast-paced, no-huddle offensive style that quarterback Cam Newton operated to perfection two seasons ago.
Malzahn replaces Gene Chizik, who was fired after a 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama to complete a 3-9 season.
