The Tigers' coach could leave for the Razorbacks.

Arkansas hasn't fired Bret Bielema - yet, anyway - but if that does happen, a major SEC head coach could be looked at as a serious candidate.

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn played wide receiver for the Razorbacks in the mid-1980s and was the team's offensive coordinator in 2006.

USA TODAY's Dan Wolken says Malzahn-to-Arkansas probably won't happen, but there are some people inside college football who believe it's not a crazy possibility.

For now, Malzahn has enough to worry about at Auburn, as the Tigers are coming off a dominant win against No. 1 Georgia and remain alive in the College Football Playoff race.
