AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall says he’s working to regain the trust of his coaches, family and fans.
Marshall spoke with reporters Sunday for the first time since he was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and a window tint violation during a July 11 traffic stop in Georgia. His mother paid the $1,100 in fines.
Marshall says he put himself in a bad situation and that the incident will help make him “a better man on and off the field”
He says he apologized to his teammates and told them it wouldn’t happen again.
Marshall led the Tigers into the national championship game in his first season after transferring from junior college. He passed for 1,976 yards and ran for 1,068, accounting for 26 touchdowns.
