By Alabama News Network

Auburn has given football coach Gus Malzahn a new six-year contract worth $3.85 million annually.
   
Athletic director Jay Jacobs announced the first-year coach's new deal Friday, the eve of the third-ranked Tigers' game against No. 5 Missouri for the Southeastern Conference championship in Atlanta.
   
Malzahn has led Auburn to an 11-1 season after taking over a team that won three games and lost all eight SEC contests in 2012.
   
Jacobs says, "we want coach Malzahn to be at Auburn for a long time."
   
Auburn hired Malzahn last December and gave him a five-year contract worth $2.3 million annually.
   
The new deal includes a $250,000 raise each year.
   
Auburn is in line to play in the Sugar Bowl and possibly for a national championship with a win over Missouri. The Tigers upset No. 1 Alabama last weekend.
