The year was 2011, when Kristi made controversial statements about ESPN football analyst and college coaching legend Lou Holtz. The blond also spoke about former Auburn quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton, Auburn star running back Michael Dyer, and Auburn players who she says ‘aren’t’ the most intelligent people out there.’
The video has since disappeared, however a bunch of people saw it and it was even claimed at the time, the video costed her hubby jobs at North Carolina and Kansas. Though many did blame Kristi, her hubby was the first to defend her saying
“I’ve got one of the best coach’s wives ever. I would not be in the situation that I’m in right now professionally without her. She’s been a great coach’s wife,” “You’re in a high-profile position, and people manipulate things and try to do things. That’s very unfortunate. She’s a godly woman and a great support for me. That’s part of the deal. We’ll be better for it in the long run.”
Seem like Kristi Malzahn can do no wrong in her hubby’s eyes, that’s love yall.
