Auburn Tigers running back Michael Dyer, who was suspended for the Chick-fil-A Bowl just before offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn accepted the Arkansas St. Red Wolves coaching job, has been the subject of connect-the-dots transfer rumors for a spell now. He's a Little Rock native, so the story lined up.
Nothing official has been announced yet, but the onboarding of the player who was essentially Auburn's entire 2011 offense would be quite a haul for Malzahn. Ranking No. 21 in the nation in rushing yardage, he put up more yards than any other player on the team -- including quarterbacks and kick returners.
Dyer was named first-team All-SEC a year after making the signature play of the 2011 BCS National Championship Game.
