Hey, Auburn fans: Kiehl Frazier is definitely NOT going to be your quarterback for the 2013 season.

The terrible 2012 quarterback has been moved to safety by coach Gus Malzahn, the new Auburn coach said Monday, and the battle’s going to be between Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson.

Marshall, a juco transfer and Johnson, a freshman, means that it’s likely Jonathan Wallace won’t get the nod. But there’s still time.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Frazier voluntarily moved to safety.

Malzahn said in a press conference: “We told them all that, ‘Hey these two new guys, we feel have earned the right to compete for the job and they’re going to get the majority of the reps with our ones this week….That’s not to say that¬†Jonathan Wallace¬†will not be the starter come Day 1, but we are going to give those two new guys a real chance to compete for the job and really show what they can do.

He added: “We’ve seen them both improve each practice and both of them have extremely live arms…They both can run, and both of them are athletic. It’s just a matter of how quick they can get acclimated. We’re still looking for a couple of other situations to see how they react and see how their teammates react. With Jonathan Wallace, we know exactly what we have with Jonathan and we have a lot of respect for Jonathan.

Wallace threw for 720 yards, 4 TDs and 4 INTs for the Tigers last season.
