Gus Malzahn wants to see how far he can take Auburn

Arkansas can make Gus Malzahn an offer he can’t refuse Arkansas can make Gus Malzahn an offer he can’t refuse

With Auburn losing 28-7 to Georgia in the SEC championship on Saturday, all the talk surrounding the Tigers immediately turns from the College Football Playoff to Gus Malzahn's future.

Kamryn Pettway, the team's leading rusher a year ago, was ruled out by Malzahn earlier in the week as he recovers from a fractured shoulder blade that could sideline him the rest of the season.

But having just wrapped up his fifth regular season at the helm in Auburn, Malzahn told ESPN he would prefer to stay on The Plains. I love my players. Devan Barrett is a guy you could see on the field, too.

Johnson had a huge game in the first matchup against the Bulldogs, and the Tigers offense will have a significant void to fill if he is unable to play or is put on any kind of play count. "He's playing at a high level right now". "You're talking about Alabama, Georgia, and of course, I'd throw us in there". "You play really good teams and they're not going to get in there and miss tackles".

"He's about as one-track minded as it gets", Johnson said. "Any time you've got one of the best players in all of college football and you're not for sure if he's going to play, as a coach, it concerns you". "I really don't hear anything outside of what goes on in the locker room, really, or in our building".

Asked about the latest reports regarding the Razorbacks' interest in him Friday in a press conference previewing Saturday's game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Malzahn declined to comment.

"That had nothing to do with the game at all", he said.

Malzahn was asked about the rumors tying him to the vacant head coaching position at Arkansas, but he did not comment on that or his reportedly ongoing contract negotiations with Auburn. "That man was focused on winning an SEC championship, and that's what we were focused on".

Malzahn confirmed the exchange he had with Smart after Auburn's 40-17 upset of Georgia on November 11 where he told Smart he would see him in Atlanta.
