Multiple news outlets including Auburn Undercover are reporting that Head Coach Gus Malzahn has agreed to a new deal to remain at Auburn. The numbers are not yet finalized or, at least, not being made public yet, but it is being reported to span at least five to seven years with up to as much as $7 million per year.
Arkansas is said to have made Coach Malzahn its “top target” with an offer of seven-year deal in the $50 million range. ESPN’s Chris Lowe says the Auburn deal will be for $49 million over seven years.
Malzahn is 45–21 in five years at Auburn and 25–15 in SEC play. He has two SEC West titles and won the SEC in 2013. He also coached the 2013 Tigers to within 13 seconds of winning a National Championship.
