AUBURN, Ala. — On Tuesday, a Sports Illustrated report cited an anonymous source that stated Gus Malzahn had once described Texas as his "dream job."
When asked about it following Wednesday's practice, Malzahn professed his fondness for his current position.
"The response is I’m tickled to death to be the head coach of the Auburn Tigers," he said.
Malzahn, in the first year of a five-year contract, has led Auburn to an 11-1 record (7-1 in SEC) and has the team in Saturday's SEC Championship game, where it will face No. 5 Missouri.
While still the coach at Texas, Mack Brown has had to fight off speculation about his job all season. Brown, in his 16th year leading the Longhorns, has the team ranked No. 23 in the latest BCS Standings.
Texas plays at No. 9 Baylor on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
