Gus Malzahn doesn’t have a game to coach Saturday during Auburn’s bye week, but he’ll still be keeping a close eye on at least one SEC contest.
The Tigers coach will appear on CBS as a guest studio analyst for Georgia and Florida’s rivalry game, the network announced in a tweet Thursday.

No. 7 Georgia (6-1, 4-1 SEC) and the No. 9 Gators (6-1, 4-1) kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday in Jacksonville. Malzahn will be a part of the pregame coverage an hour before the game and will stick with the studio team through its halftime analysis. As someone who has to game plan for the Bulldogs every year, Malzahn’s insights will be valuable for the brodacast.
If anything, Malzahn’ studio appearance can distract him from the heat he’s been feeling for Auburn’s disappointing season. The timing of his appearance on CBS almost makes you wonder if he might consider an analyst gig should the grumbling about his coaching get him fired in the coming months.
