Last month right before SEC Media Days, Auburn QB Nick Marshall was busted with less than an ounce of weed during a traffic stop. He wasn’t able to go to attend SEC Media Days and represent his school. His coach Gus Malzahn also says he went be suspended for part of their first game.
For the first time since the incident, Marshall spoke with the media and he was apologetic:
“I made a mistake and I’m just trying to gain my trust back from the coaches,” Marshall told AuburnTigers.com. “I let my family down and I’m also trying to gain their trust back and also the Auburn fans.
“The incident that happened, it’s just going to change me as a better man on and off the field.”
“I came up here and I apologized and I told them it won’t happen again. And they accepted me back with open hands,” Marshall said.
“(Coach Malzahn) gave me a message that I made a mistake. I’m going to accept my punishment. I trust my coach, and I know I’m just trying to gain my trust back with him.”
It’s good to see that Marshall sounds sorry for what he did. Hopefully going forward he just won’t put himself in bad spots. All will be forgiven though by the fans as soon as he gets that first TD.
