The Auburn Tigers have entered the coaching carousel.
Auburn on Sunday fired head coach Gus Malzahn after eight seasons with the program.
Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele will serve as the team's interim coach.

Malzahn, who has been the Tigers coach since 2013, has a career record of 76–38 including a 6-4 record in 2020. But after winning SEC Coach of the Year in 2013, Malzahn failed to get Auburn into the national title hunt.
The highly compensated coach leaves Auburn with a reported $21.45 million buyout.
