Multiple media outlets reported Wednesday afternoon that star running back Michael Dyer is considering a transfer from Auburn to Arkansas State.
AuburnUndercover.com reported that Dyer plans to transfer and has not been given a release from Auburn yet. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that the Dyer family wants to talk to Chizik before deciding to transfer, and that Arkansas State could be a possible landing spot.
Former Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn is the new head coach at Arkansas State.
NationalFootballAuthority.com reported early Wednesday that Dyer had already filed paperwork to transfer to Arkansas State, but spokesmen from both Auburn and Arkansas State said they were not aware that Dyer had filed paperwork to transfer to the school in Jonesboro, Ark. Auburn’s spokesman was not aware of any change in Dyer’s status.
