Malzahn supplies opportunities for prep coaches

Posted: Updated:

Auburn's Gus Malzahn is still plumbing the high school coaching ranks for talent.     

Himself a longtime Arkansas prep coach, Malzahn has added three former high school coaches to his support staff after several others moved on to jobs as college assistants. He frequently cites his own prep background.     

Southern Miss offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey served as Auburn's offensive analyst last season after working as a high school coach. He says Malzahn "remembers what it's like to clean the bathroom and cut the grass and line the practice field."     

Those days are long gone for Malzahn, who has a six-year, $26.85 million deal after leading Auburn to the national championship game.     

Malzahn says there are plenty of good high school coaches "that just hadn't ever had the opportunity that I had."

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
