Gus Malzahn continued to state that he isn't a candidate for other open positions around the country, including Texas, where his name has been connected for some time.


AUBURN, Ala.Gus Malzahn claims he isn't a candidate for the open position at Texas.

Or any other job, for that matter.

That's why Malzahn made sure to state his contentment with his current job on Monday.

"I'm a good fit for the Auburn Tigers," he said. "That's why I signed the contract the day before the SEC championship. Like I said before, I'm tickled to death to be here."

Malzahn agreed to a new, six-year deal on Dec. 5, which is set to pay him $3.8 million per year starting next season. For each subsequent year he stays at Auburn, that base salary would rise by $250,000, bringing the entire worth of the contract to $26.85 million.

The exact parameters of the deal, including the buyout, have yet to be released.
