FILE - This is an Aug. 2, 2010 file photo shows Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn directing his players on the opening day of practice in Auburn, Ala.  Malzahn says he is waiting for the "right time, right place" to become a head coach. Vanderbilt apparently wasn't that place. Malzahn would not talk about the Vanderbilt head coaching position in an interview Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2010 but said that he does want to run his own program "somewhere down the line."
