Phillip Marshall: Auburn's Malzahn beats the odds

1 post in this topic

When Pat Dye arrived at Auburn in 1981, legendary Alabama coach Bear Bryant was nearing the end of his career. Recruiting became more difficult when Bryant couldn't tell recruits he would be around throughout their careers. And after Dye's second season, Bryant retired.In 1999, Tommy Tuberville's first season at Auburn, Alabama won the SEC championship. But starting the next season, Alabama's program imploded. The next eight years would be marked by NCAA problems, one coach mired in an infidelity scandal, another who got out of town as quickly as he could, another who never coached a game and another who couldn't overcome sanctions and scholarship losses.Both Dye and Tuberville took full advantage. Dye won four SEC championships. Tuberville won 85 games in 10 seasons, beat Alabama six consecutive times and had a 13-0 season in 2004.
