Barbee Finally Signs Contract At Auburn

It took a while — 22 months to be exact — but Auburn coach Tony Barbee has finally signed his contract on the Plains.  The Opelika-Auburn News reports that the second-year coach actually inked the agreement back on December 7th.  It is a seven-year pact dating back to Barbee’s start date of March, 2010. 

The coach says he’s glad to have the issue put to bed:

“I’m glad it’s signed.  The contract was a bigger deal for everybody else but Auburn and me.  I was very comfortable with the letter of agreement we were working under.  It’s part of negotiations.  Things don’t always go as quickly as you want them to go.  It’s just part of it. 

Auburn had committed to me.  I had committed to them.”

Barbee’s contract — worth $1.5 million per year — includes a chapter on compliance that is identical to the wording in Gene Chizik’s contract.
