The Tigers could reportedly make a push for the FSU head coach.

If Gus Malzahn does leave Auburn, a big-name ACC coach could reportedly be in play for the Tigers.

It's believed that Malzahn is interested in the potential opening at Arkansas and if his team doesn't win the Iron Bowl on Saturday, a departure is very possible.

If that does happen, SB Nation is reporting that Florida State's Jimbo Fisher could be in play for Auburn.

If Malzahn leaves, expect Auburn people to push for Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher. If Fisher were to land at Auburn, he’d hope to retain at least current Tigers defensive coordinator Kevin Steele and associate head coach Rodney Garner.

Fisher has also been linked to the Tennessee job and the potential opening at Texas A&M.

It's unclear how interested the national champion head coach might be in leaving Tallahassee.

Florida State has struggled mightily this season, going 4-6.
