Auburn’s up-tempo offense is a trademark of Gus Malzahn’s coaching style. Now, the coach is working to land an actual trademark for a phrase that best describes his offensive philosophy.

Jon Solomon of the Birmingham News reports that Malzahn’s Arkansas-based company HUNH, LLC has filed an application to trademark the phrase “Hurry Up No Huddle.” The phrase has been sold on T-shirts in an Auburn bookstore.

As a high school coach in Arkansas, Malzahn wrote a book entitled, “”The Hurry-Up, No-Huddle: An Offensive Philosophy.”

According to Solomon, all of Malzahn’s personal endorsement rights are assigned to Auburn for the duration of his coaching tenure in exchange for $900,000 per year.

After UGA game, it should be Penn Wagers at home. Richt said a call was crap and Wagers ran from miles away to throw a bench flag? When exactly did Vince Dooley piss in Wagers' Cheerios?

After watching the video interview of Malzahn's wife I wonder if she is behind this. She certainly wasn't my idea of a national program head coaches wife.
