AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - The Auburn Tigers are hoping to speed things up.
Coach Gus Malzahn said Monday the return of quarterback Nick Marshall and most of the offense gives the Tigers a chance to operate his hurry-up, no-huddle system even faster.
Auburn opens spring practice on Tuesday also looking to get better prepared defensively for fast-paced attacks.
Malzahn opposed a failed offseason move to rein in fast-paced offenses with a 10-second minimum for snapping the ball. As for his own offensive tempo, he says, "We definitely need to improve in that area."
Having a starting quarterback return for the first time in Malzahn's college coaching career should help in that regard.
His first Auburn team managed the biggest one-year turnaround in SEC history before losing to Florida State in the national championship game.
