Auburn head football coach Gus Malzahn reportedly received a contract extension Monday that will keep him at the University until 2020. Per AL.com:
quote:Malzahn was the head coach at Arkansas State before his was hired by Auburn in 2013 to replace former head coach Gene Chizik.
Under the terms of the new agreement, which was signed on April 1, Malzahn will make $4.725 million per year through Dec. 31, 2020.
His previous deal was through Dec. 31, 2019 and had Malzahn earning $4.35 million in 2016, with an increase of $250,000 per year. In 2016 and 2017, Malzahn will earn a combined $500,000 more than he would have under his previous amended contract, but he will earn a combined $500,000 less in 2018 and 2019, making the only difference on paper the additional year in 2020.
