Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has ditched his signature visor.
Why? Well, his bald spot can now be seen on television.
According to SEC Country’s Justin Ferguson, Malzahn’s daughters noticed his bald spot during a recent Auburn game and told the coach that he needs to start wearing a hat instead.
“My daughters said something about me wearing a visor and I needed to put on a hat because I’m getting bald,” Malzahn said. “So I’m going to wear a hat here on out.”
Malzahn was then asked about former Florida and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier picking him on ESPN’s College GameDay because of the visor.
“Did he? Yeah I’m going to have to apologize to him,” Malzahn said. “I’ve got Kristy and my two girls that are on me. I saw a replay and it looked pretty bad. That’s the reason why I’m going to wear a hat.”
During Auburn’s 18-13 win over LSU Saturday evening, Malzahn officially debuted new headwear — a white hat with Auburn’s “AU” shield.
With Auburn’s big victory in the hat’s debut, Malzahn has great reason to stick with the new look.
