Malzahn Agrees To New Deal With Auburn

Georgia Bulldogs celebrate SEC Title

The Razorbacks are reportedly set to offer Malzahn $50 million over seven years to take over as the head coach in Fayetteville.

"I just said I want to be the head coach at Auburn", he replied. "We're on solid foundation and have a chance to do some special things".

It may seem odd for Malzahn to consider leaving Auburn-which reached the SEC Championship Game and beat Alabama this season-for an Arkansas program that fired Bret Bielema and went 4-8, but Dodd noted the coach had grown "frustrated at the always-shifting perceptions of him" with the Tigers. The Tigers still will be in a New Year's Six bowl.

It has been widely reported that Memphis head coach, Mike Norvell was Arkansas' second choice.

Malzahn reiterated several times that he was to remain with the Tigers, saying "I'm happy at Auburn".

Malzahn led the Tigers to the BCS title game in his first season, but they lost 34-31 to Florida State.


He also led Auburn to victories over teams that were No. 1 in the College Football Playoff rankings at the time, Georgia and Alabama.

With all of the coaching turnover in the SEC, Malzahn is now the only coach left in the conference with a win over Alabama's Nick Saban. "I would particularly like to say Go Dawgs to my neighbors, the Faulkners, at 8 o'clock on a Sunday morning".

Auburn is 45-21 over the course of Malzahn's five-year tenure, which began following the firing of Gene Chizik after the 2012 season.

He also has the No. 9-ranked recruiting class in the country coming in for the 2018 cycle, per 247Sports, so there is reason for optimism moving forward.

"We have worked very hard to create something here", Malzahn told reporters Saturday night, via ESPN.
