Auburn coaching candidate says he hasn't been contacted by Tigers
When the Auburn Tigers fired coach Gus Malzahn on Sunday afternoon, some names quickly started circulating regarding his replacement.
There was Hugh Freeze, Kevin Steele, Billy Napier and others, including Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal.
But, on Monday night, Cristobal spoke with the media and said he has not been contacted by the Tigers in their coaching search thus far:

Mario Cristobal said he hasn't been contacted by Auburn. Said he doesn't know if his agent has. Said he trusts Oregon can get his contract extension done.

Of course, coaches aren’t always the most forthcoming people when it comes to coaching rumors, so we’ll see what happens with the coaching search moving forward.
Where will the Tigers turn if Cristobal is indeed out of the running for the open job?
