Malzahn up for coach of the year; plus new contract talk.

Posted: Updated:

Going into the season no one expected an SEC Championship matchup between Missouri and Auburn.

After losing efforts last year, both Missouri and Auburn have had an incredible, unbelievable, dream turnaround seasons.  

Because of that, both Gus Malzahn and Gary Pinkel have been honored today. Malzahn and Pinkel have been named to the finalist list for the Maxwell Football Club Coach of the Year Award. Duke’s David Cutcliffe was also named as a finalist.       

The amazing turnaround on the plains could also mean more money for Gus Malzahn. According to the Associated Press, Auburn AD Jay Jacobs talked today about planning to meet with Malzahn after the season to discuss a new contract worth more money. 

Right now Malzahn makes 2.3 million making him in the 4th lowest paid coach in the SEC.

Missouri and Auburn will kickoff at 3:00 p.m. in the Georgia Dome.
