Auburn coach Gene Chizik has agreed to a new contract that will pay him $3.5 million annually and run through 2015. With incentives, he could earn up to $4.5 million. Athletic director Jay Jacobs said in a statement...

"We believe that we have the best coach in college football,"..."More importantly, coach Chizik is a great mentor to our student-athletes, he represents Auburn with class and integrity in all that he does, and he is an outstanding ambassador for Auburn University."
Chizik now ranks fourth among SEC coaches in annual salary. Alabama's Nick Saban tops the list with an average of $4.7 million after signing a new deal in 2009. Saban is followed by LSU's Les Miles at $3.75 million and Arkansas' Bobby Petrino at $3.56 million. Talk about this more here.
