AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Auburn has hired former offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn as its new head football coach.

Auburn announced that it will introduce the former Arkansas State coach in a news conference Tuesday night

Malzahn was the Tigers' offensive coordinator during their national championship run in 2010, but spent last season at Arkansas State in his first college head coaching position.

He led the Red Wolves to a 9-3 record, a Sun Belt Conference title and a berth in the Bowl.

Malzahn returns with his fast-paced, no-huddle offensive style that quarterback Cam Newton operated to perfection two seasons ago.

Malzahn replaces Gene Chizik, who was fired after a 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama to complete a 3-9 season.
