AUBURN, AL (WBRC) -

Auburn University of Athletic Director Jay Jacobs announced Thursday that football head coach Gus Malzahn will get a contract extension and raise in light of this season's successes.

Malzahn's contract has been extended for six more years.

"The new contract includes a raise and extension and is our statement that Auburn is committed to Coach Malzahn for the long haul. While this season has been remarkable, I'm equally excited about the future of our program under his leadership. The future of Auburn football is very bright," Jacobs said in a press release.

The extension increases Malzahn's annual salary to $3.85 million beginning next year and he'll get a $250,000 increase for each subsequent year.
