Auburn went from the preseason No. 9 team in the country to 7-5 in 2018, and that brought with it intense scrutiny on coach Gus Malzahn. One year after signing a 7-year, $49 million contract by winning the SEC West, rumors of pressure by influential Auburn power brokers on Malzahn to re-work his deal have been prevalent since the end of the season. “A couple things I wanted to clear up that are out there,” Malzahn said (via 247Sports). “First of all, my contract has not changed one bit. I was never told I had to change my contract to keep my job. I have the support of our athletic director and president. There’s nobody hamstringing me from doing our job.
