Gus Malzahn refutes report about reduced contract buyout

Larry Brown Sports

Gus Malzahn has refuted a report that says he accepted a reduced contract buyout in order to remain at Auburn.

Malzahn received a monster 7-year, $49 million contract after leading the Tigers to a 10-4 season last year that included a win over rival Alabama. Malzahn was also being mentioned in connection with the Arkansas vacancy last year, which may have increased his leverage.

But Auburn disappointed with a 7-5 season this year, which put pressure on him, and a report last month said the coach agreed to a reduced buyout in order to keep his job. Malzahn says that is not the case.
