Auburn football coach Gus Malzahn is handing control of the offense over to OC Chad Morris.

According to Josh Vitale, Malzahn told the media Morris will completely control the offense, and added, “I trust him 110 percent.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, this sure should be interesting. For those of you who might have forgotten, Morris last coached at Arkansas.

In case you’re wondering how that went, it went horribly wrong. He had zero success, and was canned before even sniffing the end of his contract.

Now, he’s been scooped up by Malzahn and Auburn to oversee the offense under Bo Nix. To say the expectations are high would be an understatement.

Malzahn is routinely on the hot seat. Handing your offense over to a coach who just got ran out of Arkansas is a bold move!

Bold move, folks!

We’ll see how it works out for Malzahn, but this seems like it has a lot of potential to go sideways on him.
