Former Auburn football coach Gus Malzahn was involved in a crash Monday in Auburn, putting one man in critical condition.
The collision occurred near Hamilton and Ogletree Road as the car Malzahn was driving collided with a motorcycle.
The motorcyclist was flown to a trauma center, but he is expected to recover, according to WBRL.
Malzhan was offensive coordinator for Auburn’s football team in 2010 when the Auburn Tigers, led by Heisman Trophy winner and quarterback Cam Newton, won the BCS National Championship. He became head coach in 2013, a position he served in for eight seasons before he was let go at the end of the 2020 season.
Malzahn is currently the head coach at the University of Central Florida (UCF), where he is about to begin his second season.
According to Joe Kepner of WFTV, Malzahn was visiting family in Auburn following the death of his father-in-law two weeks ago. Kepner reported that Malzhan is okay, and UFC athletic director Terry Mohajir has been informed.
