Gus Malzahn Denies Interest In Arkansas Coaching Job, According To Report

When Gus Malzahn left the Auburn Tigers for the Arkansas St. Red Wolves, it was a shocker. One of the nation's best assistants, he took a job in his native state for less money than he was making as a coordinator. Some people just really like their native states.

But now that a much bigger job with much bigger resources has opened up just down the road elsewhere in his native state, of course Malzahn is going to be a hotly rumored candidate. But Malzahn says to Arkansas' 103.9 FM that he's had no contact with the Arkansas Razorbacks and that he's committed to staying at ASU:

Malzahn first made his name as a legendary high school football coach in Arkansas, with his innovative offense setting national records and winning state titles. He served for a year as Arkansas' offensive coordinator before getting a promotion onto the Tulsa staff.
