Malzahn says QB Marshall will face 'consequences,' declines to specify
Gus Malzahn called Nick Marshall a 'model citizen' before his recent marijuana citation and declined to say what his quarterback's punishment would be.
Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall was supposed to join his coach and teammates at SEC Media Days Monday. After his citation for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana last Friday, Gus Malzahn went to Hoover without him -- and promised the media there would be "consequences" for the senior's mistake.
Notably, though, Malzahn pointedly declined to say what those consequences would be, saying his final decision would be made at a later date.
"I know he's very remorseful, and that's a start," Malzahn said, "but we have high expectations for our players, especially our quarterbacks."
Malzahn also effusively praised Marshall's behavior and commitment since arriving at Auburn from junior college (by way of Georgia), calling him a "model citizen" -- praise that subtly suggested that Marshall's first offense may not be greeted with a suspension.
Auburn opens the season with Arkansas, an SEC opponent Malzahn promised would be "much improved" after going 0-8 in the SEC in Bret Bielema's first season.
