He won't even let Sexton negotiate for him... HAHA


ATLANTA, Georgia -- The night before Auburn made the trip to Atlanta for the SEC Championship Game, Gus Malzahn poked his head into Jay Jacobs' office late Thursday with a request.

Malzahn wanted to knock out his contract right then and there.

"He just came to me and said, 'let's get this done,'" Jacobs said Saturday.

The coach and athletic director agreed to the principles of Malzahn's new contract, which includes a six-year extension and a raise to $3.85 million, which will increase by $250,000 in each subsequent year.

According to Jacobs, most coaches let their agents handle those negotiations, but Malzahn, whose agent is Jimmy Sexton, has handled both of his contract negotiations with Auburn himself.

Jacobs originally planned to meet with Malzahn on Sunday to discuss contract details. Auburn president Jay Gogue had already signed off on the parameters of Malzahn's extension, an expected move after the first-year coach steered the Tigers to an 11-1 season and an SEC West title one year after the Tigers finished winless in SEC play, 3-9 overall.

After rumors started circulating last week about Malzahn's candidacy for other jobs, the Tigers head coach wanted to get the deal done as soon as possible, and Malzahn took the opportunity to meet with Jacobs late at night after Thursday's practice and his weekly Tiger Talk radio show.

An agreement has been signed, and full contract details will be hammered out next week, Jacobs said. Incentives are expected to remain the same in Malzahn's new deal, with one possible increase, Jacobs said, and details on the buyout portion of the contract will be available once the contract is completed and released.

For both Jacobs and Malzahn, the important part has already been resolved, effectively locking Malzahn in at Auburn.

Smart move to not distract the players before the big game.Coaches that are leaving don't do so well in post season games.

We're Auburn, we will eventually overpay in the long run. He just needs to stick it out.

"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

The more I see of Gus the head coach, the more impressed I am.  Take the bull by the horns and end the job swap chatter.  It's obvious Gus wants to be at Auburn and has unfinished business here.  War Eagle!

He'll get another raise next year, but it was a bold move to prove that he doesn't give a Posted Image about money or the political side of CFB. It's all about Auburn football, baby.

As much as I would love to buy into the possibility that Gus will likely stay with Auburn long term, I just can't bring myself to be confident in that after all these coaches in the past that claim the same thing bolt off to the NFL or something when they see another zero or two added to their paycheck. Money talks and I won't believe Gus is truly here for the long haul until probably year 4 or 5. Until then, I remaine elated that he will be here next year and will be hopeful but realistically  skeptical about how long he actually stays.
