Gus Malzahn says Auburn’s 2013 offense was a ‘simplifed version’ of what he wants


In a recent interview with CBSSports.com, Auburn Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn said the offense his Tigers ran in 2013 was “a very, very simplified version” of what it could be.

Considering the Tigers averaged 501.3 yards per game and 39.5 points per game last year, the idea of their offense having been “simplified” is pretty scary.

Here’s Malzahn:

“Last year we were a very, very simplified version. Our goal is to get better at our base foundation of offense and defense. But we’re a year farther along, so we have been a little bit more specific on some things we’d like to do in the fall. We still haven’t lost the concept of the foundation of offense and defense. We’ve still been pretty simple.”

Malzahn said plenty of other interesting things in the interview, so make sure to check it out in full. College football season is right around the corner (at least that’s what I tell myself).
