AUBURN UNIVERSITY

Gus Malzahn’s future as Auburn’s head coach does not appear to be in danger. There have no discussions about his job status, sources told the Montgomery Advertiser. The athletic director’s feelings on the direction the Tigers are headed hasn’t changed. “We’ve had one of the toughest schedules in the country. We’ve been competitive in every one of those games,” AD Allen Greene said Friday at Auburn’s Board of Trustees meeting. “Our focus right now is on Samford, on Alabama and the Iron Bowl, and recruiting. Our whole focus right now is finishing out the season on a strong note and then focusing on reloading for next year.” Malzahn is in the second year of a seven-year, $49 million contract that he signed following the 2017 season. Still, that contract represents the significant commitment Auburn made to Malzahn, albeit before Greene was hired to replace Jay Jacobs as athletics director and while former university president Steven Leath was running the show — the deal is 75% guaranteed, which means Malzahn’s buyout, if fired, would be more than $27 million. “I love our coaching staff. I love our players,” Greene said. “The more chance I get to spend with them, you start to realize what great Auburn men they are, and they represent the university in a first-class manner, and they compete no matter what the scoreboard says.” -Josh Vitale, Montgomery Advertiser, Read More
