Malzahn Didn’t Jump For Vandy… Would He Jump For Maryland?

Auburn’s Gene Chizik said last night — less than two weeks before the BCS Championship Game — that it’s possible Maryland officials will make a run at offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn.

“To the best of my knowledge, there are possibilities of contact.  I have not talked to anybody personally, but there are possibilities of contact in there.  I can’t give any details because I don’t have any.”

Malzahn was scheduled to meet with the press yesterday, but chose not to.

When James Franklin was allowed to leave (for the Vandy job Malzahn turned down) and Ralph Friedgen was forced out, it was believed that Maryland was locked in to hire former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach.  But according to ComcastSportsNet Washington, Leach might not be the frontrunner.

Maryland officials — according to the network — have already interviewed SMU’s June Jones and Malzahn in addition to Leach.  I guess an already conducted interview would indeed constitute “possibilities of contact.” 

Jones has publicly pulled himself out of the running for the Maryland job.

Malzahn was given a $1.3 million per salary just two weeks ago when he elected to stay at Auburn and turn down Vanderbilt.
