Auburn's Gus Malzahn Looks to the Future after BCS Loss


By Alabama News Network

Gus Malzahn says he'll draw plenty of motivation from Auburn's close call in the national championship game.

The Tigers coach said Friday he feels the program's future is bright and that they'll "work extremely hard to get back there and try to redeem ourselves."

Malzahn repeatedly referred to Auburn's future as bright at his end-of-season news conference after the Tigers' 34-31 loss to Florida State. Indeed, even with tailback Tre Mason and left tackle Greg Robinson leaving early for the NFL draft, Auburn figures to enter next season with a high ranking.

Malzahn says he has spoken with athletic director Jay Jacobs about raises for his assistant coaches. He expects to sign his own six-year deal "in the near future."

He says former starting quarterback Kiehl Frazier is transferring.
