Gus Malzahn agrees to new deal to remain at Auburn, spurns Arkansas

Gus Malzahn agrees to new deal with Auburn

Details of the new contract have not been finalized, but ESPN reported Sunday that the deal will pay Malzahn $49 million over seven years.

However, he has continually said he "plans on" being at Auburn. "We have a great foundation for the future".

Malzahn has said in the past that Arkansas is his "dream job", but Auburn's trip to the SEC Championship game encouraged Auburn officials to re-sign Malzahn to a long term deal.

No. 7 Auburn will face No. 12 UCF in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on New Year's Day.

This news comes after fellow SEC school Arkansas reportedly expressed interest in hiring Malzahn. He offered no comment in his press conference previewing the SEC Championship game on Friday, then, after the loss to Georgia on Saturday, said he was "happy at Auburn" and "I want to be the head coach at Auburn". The moderator of the call eventually requested that no more questions be asked about the coaching situation and even cut one reporter off. Assuming Clemson, who is the No. 1 ranked team in the country, gets the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings, Georgia likely will head to the Rose Bowl and take on Oklahoma in one of the College Football Playoff semifinals. Before he became Auburn's head coach, he led Arkansas State to a 9-3 regular season in 2011.

Auburn motored down the field on its first drive, going 75 yards in 10 plays for a 7-0 lead. He has beaten Nick Saban and Alabama twice, and he spearheaded a 10-3 campaign in 2017 that will conclude with a Peach Bowl showdown against undefeated Central Florida.
