Gus Malzahn agrees to new 7-year deal with Auburn

Gus Malzahn agrees to new 7-year deal with Auburn

An Auburn offensive line that has perhaps been the biggest reason for the Tigers' turnaround this season was outdone on this night.

"I'm planning on being at Auburn", Malzahn said earlier Sunday, declining to address contract negotiations or the Arkansas job.

"We started out and tried to get the ball on the perimeter by throwing some short passes to get some pace going", Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said.

The new deal was first reported by 247Sports.

"Strength and stability go hand-in-hand, and we have both in Coach Malzahn", Auburn University president Steven Leath said in a statement. "We were all really, really excited players-wise, coaching staff-wise". And on that television is a replay of last week's SEC Championship Game between No. 3 Georgia and No. 7 Auburn, which, as you'll recall, the Bulldogs won 28-7 to secure a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Should Kirby Smart's team win its semifinal contest on New Year's Day, the team would have a chance to play one more game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, this time for a national crown.

There have been reports that Arkansas will make a run at Malzahn for its coaching vacancy, and he was asked about that afterward.

Canada jury finds Guyana-born woman unfit to stand trial for murder
A jury has found the woman accused in the deadly 2015 PATH stabbing unfit to stand trial for first degree murder. Several news agencies have reported that the jury reached the verdict yesterday after deliberating for an hour.

Auburn's head coach was pressed on the rumors and reports coming out of Arkansas throughout this past weekend. "I want to see that through, personally", he told reporters. A Peach Bowl official eventually cut off questions unrelated to the game.

Minutes after the call concluded, news broke that Malzahn had agreed to the new deal.

Malzahn was Auburn's offensive coordinator in 2010, when the Tigers set a record for victory margin in an SEC title game with a 56-17 dismantling of SC.

The takeaway Auburn: The Tigers bounced back from an excruciating defeat at LSU, where they blew a 20-point lead, with an impressive five-game winning streak.

It propelled Auburn into the CFP discussion despite two losses and was a springboard to knocking off yet another previous No. 1 in state-rival Alabama, 26-14, at home a week ago. His name popped up in hot seat talk as recently as October 14 of this season when Auburn blew a 20-point lead in a road loss at LSU, but the Tigers reeled off five straight wins following that game, including two over then-top-ranked rivals Georgia and Alabama over a span of three weeks.

Auburn has also brought in a top-10 recruiting class in every year of Malzahn's tenure and is on track to bring in another in 2018. "We wanted to show that we could play better than we did".

"I'm happy at Auburn", he said.
