Auburn AD Says He’ll Work To Keep Malzahn

Asked if he would work hard to keep Gus Malzahn at Auburn, athletic director Jay Jacobs said: “No doubt about it, no doubt about it, no doubt it.  That’s what we’re going to do.”

Then he better get out the checkbook.  If reports are correct that Vanderbilt is offering anything close to $3 million a year then it’s hard to imagine Jacobs being able to keep his coordinator.  And that’s to say nothing of other possible offers that might come Malzahn’s way.

Jacobs understands that.  “It gets to the point when you have an opportunity to become a head coach at a BCS college, it’s a tough thing not to do sometimes.  We’ll certainly do what we feel like is right, and certainly for what Gus has done for this program.”

Auburn fans should hope — if multiple schools come after their offensive guru — that he feels:


1.  He’s not ready to be a head coach yet

or

2.  He wants to prove that his offense will thrive in the SEC, at Auburn even without Cam Newton


If he doesn’t have those feelings, then it’s going to be tough to keep Malzahn at Auburn.
