AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Auburn has hired a search firm and formed an advisory group to help with the search to replace fired football coach Gus Malzahn.
Auburn will use Atlanta-based Parker Executive Search Firm to assist the eight-member advisory group that includes athletic director Allen Greene and 1985 Auburn Heisman Trophy winner Bo Jackson.
The school announced the firing of Malzahn on Sunday, a day after completing his eighth season with a 6-4 record and victory over Mississippi State.
The advisory group includes Auburn alumni and administrators: Lt. Gen, Ron Burgess, Auburn executive vice president; Dr. Beverly Marshall, faculty athletic representative; Tim Jackson, executive associate AD; trustee and former Auburn football player Quentin Riggins; ex-Auburn quarterback Randy Campbell, and Michelle McKenna, the NFL's chief information officer. ---
