Auburn head coach has been busy preparing for the Florida State Seminoles in the National Championship, so it is not surprising he has not responded to rumors about the Cleveland Browns to this point. that changed today when asked about the NFL.
In a non-deniel, denial, Malzahn did not say ‘no’. He did say he is happy at Auburn though. It is unclear just how legitimate the interest the Browns reported interest is at this point as rumors are flying all over the place.
Malzahn has also been linked to the University of Texas and at one point there were reports that said that was his dream job. Auburn gave him a nice pay raise and that seemed to end that for the moment.
Malzahn’s rise in the coaching ranks has been nothing short of meteoric after he was the offensive coordinator foe Auburn’s National Title team with Cam Newton, going to Arkansas State for a year and then leading Auburn to the National Championship this season.
