AUBURN, Ala. (KFSM) - After being pursued by Arkansas, Gus Malzahn will stay at Auburn after getting a new contract from the school, according to 247Sports Brandon Marcello.

According to the report, Malzahn has agreed to a deal that will keep him at Auburn after overtures from Arkansas. The numbers are not yet clear, but the deal will stretch at least five years and could include a raise to as much as $7 million, according to his source.

CBS Sports reported earlier on Sunday (Dec. 3) that Arkansas had offered Malzahn a seven year deal that was worth close to $50 million. Malzahn, a Fort Smith native, was the Razorbacks first choice to replace the recently fired Bret Bielema.

Auburn won the SEC West and was ranked No. 2 in the College Football Playoff before falling to Georgia, 28-7, in Saturday's (Dec. 2) SEC Championship game. The Tigers were selected to face undefeated UCF in the Peach Bowl.
