Malzahn, Auburn staff give back

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN, Ala. -

Auburn head football coach Gus Malzahn is used to calling plays, and did a lot of that over the last month of spring practice.

But Friday, he called something else: Bingo numbers.

As part of the fifth annual Tigers Give Back Community Service Day, Malzahn called bingo at the Azalea Place Assisted Living facility in Auburn.

"We ran the hurry-up, no-huddle bingo today," Malzahn joked afterward. "They did a good job keeping up though. Any time you get a chance to get out in the community and meet people and try to give back, that's a special feeling. It was a lot of fun today."

Malzahn was just one of over 100 Auburn athletics department staff to give back somewhere in the Auburn-Opelika community.

Men's basketball coach Tony Barbee read to kids at Dean Road Elementary School, and women's gymnastics coach Jeff Graba washed baseboards and did handywork at Bethany House.
