Michael Dyer Leaves Auburn, Follows Gus Malzahn to Arkansas State

What’s going on at Auburn? One year after winning the title, the Tigers seem to be falling apart. First, the school’s offensive mastermind, Gus Malzahn, bolted for Arkansas State in a shocker last month. Malzahn turned down a much more lucrative offer from Vanderbilt in 2010, so why would he leave now?

This week, reports have swirled that Auburn’s star RB, Michael Dyer – who was suspended for the New Year’s Eve bowl game against Virginia – would be following Malzahn to Arkansas State, and the National Football Authority is reporting paperwork was being filed today.

Malzahn obviously will be a massive loss, but Dyer’s departure would be nearly as significant. After rushing for 1,093 yards and five scores as a freshman, he went for 1,242 and 10 TDs this year (though he did nothing against LSU and Alabama). Dyer, who is from Little Rock, was rated the 11th-best football player in the class of 2010.
