On Friday, news broke that Auburn Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall was cited for marijuana possession and tinted windows during a traffic stop in Reynolds, Georgia.
Once the news broke, the Auburn Tigers football program was silent about the citation, but now we have a comment.
While Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn did provide a brief statement, it was your typical cookie cutter response that you would expect when a university/program wants to address a situation before prematurely making any decisions.
Malzahn’s statement read:
“I’m aware of the situation that happened earlier today with Nick. I’m very disappointed and I will address it with him accordingly.”
Since Marshall was not actually arrested, it is hard to imagine the Auburn football program handing Marshall any suspension.
Marshall could miss some practices, but it would be surprising if Marshall was not on the field for the 2014 season-opener on Aug. 30 against SEC rival Arkansas.
