If you thought Auburn’s season couldn’t get any better, well you’re wrong. According to Fansided.com via Brandon Marcello of AL.com, Gus Malzahn has agreed to a new six year term with the Auburn Tigers on Friday night. With the new deal in place, Auburn will be free and clear to play fast and loose in the SEC championship game.
Reportedly, the deal will pay Gus Malzahn $3.85 million next year, and the money will increase $250,000 per year over the next six. This is great news for the Auburn Tigers. Malzahn’s offense has taken the SEC by storm once again, but it’s his magic tough in close games, that is helping Auburn have a spectacular season.
Only three weeks ago, Auburn saw a big lead disappear to Georgia in the fourth quarter. Still, the Tigers found a way to win on a “Hail Mary” that will never be explained.
Then it seemed like the world stood still as Alabama tried a 57 yard field goal in last week’s game of the century. Soon after the “boot heard round the world” was short, return man Chris Davis took back a 109 yard game winning touchdown with no time on the clock.
Now with the new deal in place, at least we know one of the SEC West Alabama coaches won’t be taking their talents to Texas.
