Former Tulsa, Arkansas, and Auburn Offensive Coordinator Gus Malzahn was announced Wednesday as the new head coach of Arkansas State.

The Red Wolves went 10-2 this season, and will play Northern Illinois in the GODADDY.COM Bowl on January 8th.

Malzahn promised the crowd at the school's Convocation Center that he will have Arkansas State in the Top 25 mix annually.

He will coach at Auburn through the Chik-Fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31, but will begin recruiting and putting a staff together immediately for the Red Wolves.
