Malzahn: Waiting for 'right time, right place'

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn says he is waiting for "right time, right place" to become a head coach.

Vanderbilt apparently wasn't that place.

Malzahn would not talk about the Vanderbilt head coaching position, but said Wednesday that he does want to run his own program "somewhere down the line."

Malzahn has agreed to a new contract with the Tigers and says he's got a "great situation" with Auburn, which is gearing up for the national championship game against Oregon.

The 45-year-old says right now the "only thing" he's thinking about is preparing for the title game.

Malzahn has received the Broyles Award as the nation's top assistant and his star pupil, quarterback Cam Newton, won the Heisman Trophy.

The Tigers open practice Saturday for the Jan. 10 game in Glendale, Ariz.
