Gus Malzahn Agrees To Seven-Year Deal To Stay With Auburn

Gus Malzahn Agrees To Seven-Year Deal To Stay With Auburn

It may seem unusual for Malzahn to consider leaving Auburn-which reached the SEC Championship Game and beat Alabama this season-for an Arkansas program that fired Bret Bielema and went 4-8, but Dodd noted the coach had grown "frustrated at the always-shifting perceptions of him" with the Tigers.

"I'm planning on being at Auburn".

Malzahn went to high school in Fort Smith, Ark., was a walk-on receiver at Arkansas and finished his playing career at Henderson State.

Amid rumors that the football coach could make the jump to Arkansas, Auburn locked up Malzahn to a new seven-year, $49 million deal, according to multiple reports Sunday.

It has been widely reported that Memphis head coach, Mike Norvell was Arkansas' second choice.

- The morning after the Georgia Bulldogs defeated Auburn in the SEC Championship, one Dawgs fan gave a wake-up call to his next door neighbor.


Auburn will face 12th-ranked Central Florida in the Peach Bowl.

This report follows Malzahn's Peach Bowl Teleconference less than an hour before this report. Malzahn won a national championship with the Tigers as the team's offensive coordinator under Chizik in 2010 and led the Tigers back to the title game in his first season in 2013.

He also led Auburn to victories over teams that were No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings at the time, Georgia and Alabama.

Georgia rose three spots to No. 3 in the final coaches poll of the regular season, moving past Auburn, Wisconsin and Alabama in the process.

Malzahn has an overall head coaching record of 54-24 after going 9-3 in his lone season at Arkansas State in 2012. "We have great players".

"Yeah, I'm happy at Auburn", Malzahn told reporters after the game Saturday, via Dodd.
