Just when you thought things couldn’t get better for the Arkansas State University Football team, they did late Tuesday evening.

AStateNation.com has confirmed with multiple sources that Auburn Offensive Coordinator Gus Malzahn has been named the Head Coach at Arkansas State.

The opportunity for Malzahn to return home to the state of Arkansas apparently was too much for the talented coach to pass up.

Malzahn has coached 14 years at the high school level in Arkansas before becoming an offensive coordinator five years ago.

Malzahn is known as an offensive genius and runs a similar offense that Arkansas State has been running the last two seasons that helped make Ryan Aplin be named the Player of the Year in the Sun Belt Conference.

According to sources Malzahn is expected to be announced as the new head coach of the Red Wolves on Wednesday in a press conference.

Malzahn led Auburn to a National Championship and had done a great job at Auburn. The urge and dream to be a head coach at the D1 level will be accomplished back in his home state.

We will give more details of the complete contract as soon as we get the official release from the Arkansas State Athletic Department.

It’s definitely a great day to be a Red Wolf!
