Auburn and its wide receivers coach Kodi Burns have settled on terms for a new contract, first reported by SEC Country's Justin Ferguson.
"He's going to be at Auburn for a long time," head coach Gus Malzahn confirmed at Tuesday's Senior Bowl practice.
Burns, whose initial 2-year contract worth $350,000 annually was set to expire Jan. 31, was hired by Malzahn in February of 2015.
The logistics of Burns' new contract have yet to be released by his alma mater. Under Burns' command in 2017, Auburn finished the season with three receivers boasting 500-plus receiving yards for the first time since 2010, including Ryan Davis' record-setting year, in which the junior broke the program record for receptions in a single season.
Burns' recruiting prowess helped the team land a quartet of talented wideouts for the 2018 class, including three-star Shedrick Jackson, nephew of Auburn legend Bo Jackson, and four-stars Seth Williams, Matthew Hill and Anthony Schwartz.
