Auburn's Marshall works to regain coaches' trust

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.

The Tigers haven't shed any light on when Marshall will take the field for the first time this season, and he said he has ''no idea.'' Sophomore quarterback Jeremy Johnson is expected to start the season opener Aug. 30 against Arkansas.

Marshall says he put himself in a bad situation that will help make him ''a better man on and off the field.''
