(Photo by Doug Benc/Getty Images)We’ve yet to have a major head coach firing in college football this year. Is one coming? Auburn fans certainly seem to be hoping for one with Gus Malzahn.Auburn is on the verge of suffering its fourth loss of the season. The Tigers are currently losing to Texas A&M, 24-14, at home. Auburn is coming off of a bye week and not much appears to be improved.Fans are not happy.“Gus Malzahn is going to get fired and it’s totally justifiable. You can’t be an offensive genius with a putrid offense. I’d fire him before he leaves the stadium this evening,” tweeted one.Gus Malzahn is going to get fired and it’s totally justifiable.

If Auburn does end up making a decision, it’s going to be a costly one.Stay tuned.last_img read more
