Paul Finebaum Said This Coach Is “In Trouble” After Missing On Kelly Bryant

first_imgPaul Finebaum makes comments about roy Williams.Former Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant announced last night that he will finish his college career at Missouri. Bryant will be immediately eligible for the Tigers next season, where he’ll likely step in for the NFL-bound Drew Lock.Arkansas and Auburn were also finalists for Bryant, along with Mississippi State and UNC. Auburn’s starting quarterback Jarrett Stidham is turning pro after the season, so the Tigers could have really used Bryant.In fact, ESPN’s Paul Finebaum said this morning that AU head coach Gus Malzahn is “in trouble” after not landing Bryant. Finebaum made these remarks during an appearance on ESPN’s Get Up!.“It’s really a bad look for Malzahn, who is on thin ice even though he has a $32 million buyout,” Finebaum said. “He needed this player. He didn’t get him. Malzahn is in trouble.”Auburn went 10-4 last season and won the SEC West, but the Tigers slumped to a 7-5 record this fall. That puts added pressure on Malzahn, as Finebaum explained.“They don’t have a quarterback. Gus Malzahn–who played in the national championship game in his first year–has been spiraling, even though he beat two No. 1 teams last year. Malzahn, I mentioned has a $32 million buyout. If they fire him today–and a lot of Auburn people want him out–they owe him $15 million tomorrow and have to pay the rest of it over four years. This will be a fascinating story to watch.”You can view all of Finebaum’s comments here.Malzahn and the Tigers will end the 2018 season in the Music City Bowl. They will face Purdue.last_img read more
