Gus Malzahn donating $2 million toward football operations building

1:14 PM ET

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn and his wife, Kristi, have pledged a $2 million gift that would go toward a proposed football operations building.

“I love Auburn and am excited about our future,” Malzahn told ESPN.

Auburn’s current football operations building was built in 1989. Allen Greene, Auburn’s first-year athletic director, made a pitch to the school’s board of trustees on the need to build a football-only complex during a Thursday workshop with board members.

Malzahn is in his sixth season as Auburn’s head coach. He signed a seven-year, $49 million contract extension this summer after Arkansas showed interest in bringing Malzahn back to his home state.

He joins Florida State’s Willie Taggart and Alabama’s Nick Saban among coaches who have recently given back to their schools. Taggart gave $1 million to Florida State’s athletic facilities fundraiser, and Saban and his wife, Terry, have committed $1 million for renovations to Bryant-Denny Stadium.
