Malzahn led Auburn to the SEC Championship.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn won’t be pursuing any other jobs this offseason, as the Tigers’ first-year coach agreed to a new six-year contract prior to the SEC Championship. Malzahn will make $3.85 million in 2014 and will receive a $250,000 raise in each of the following years.
Malzahn guided Auburn to a 12-1 regular season record, which includes a SEC Championship victory over Missouri.
Malzahn was a key reason in Auburn’s turnaround this year, as the Tigers improved their win total by nine games from 2012.
