Ron you beat me to it...this irritates me. What chances do you see something like this going down?

Not again! C'mon Texas, two DCs is enough...
You know, I don't know. I think there's a decent chance Texas promotes Major Applewhite and hires another co-coordinator to help.
I don't see Gus going to Texas. I doubt he wants to be co-anything. Plus from what we heard throughout the season, Mack treats he assistants a little differently than CGC. Texas' offense is a mess and would take a couple of years to correct I believe. If he is thinking about a HC job, why go through that.
Seems to me that this may not be a great move for Malzahn--this is a different situation than when Chizik left.
Chizik wanted a stepping stone to a head job. Malzahn is already there; he is close to being able to pick his spot as a head man. Perhaps one more year--or this year.
Mack Brown is starting to close out his career; probably looking for one more big season. Then when--if--Muschamp takes over Gus must fit in with the new staff. Or, could be that Muschamp may not want a hurry up offense with the defense he has.
My guess is that Gus is looking for a head job--not another OC job--at this point.

After this year, I don't think money will be the luring thing for Malzane.
I think it is head coach or nothing to be honest.
Malzane says he loves Auburn and everything about it.
Ur playing at an elite level right now where you are, have a chance to win a title.
Why would, given these aspects, would Malzane leave? I beg to say he probably isn't on the final candidate list. All you can ask for as a OC is to compete for NC's and get paid sufficiently for your services while you wait for the right opportunity to become head coach, if that is your priority. I think we have that covered thus far. The head coaching job at Texas is two deep at this point. What is so great about that?
I think Malzahn is very happy at Auburn. The main key is for his head coach to let him run his offense. He is an offensive guru and a genius. I think that he enjoys that side of the ball so much and Gene Chizik lets him do without standing on top of him like Houston Nutt did at Arkansas. Although he may wanna be a head coach one day, he is very happy being in the position he is in. Head coaching envolves so many other things besides just running and an offense. I'm not so sure he would enjoy all these other responsibilities very much. All Auburn has to do, is make him the highest paid assistant coach and he will stay here for a while and become the hottest coaching candidate around. Then he could pick his job, especially at a great school. Chizik has already proved that taking a bad job is a bad idea!!!!! I think he will take Chiziks advise!
Pay Malzahn a million! Give all his children free college. Lets have the #1 offense for years to come. And watch Nick Saban give up and move to the NFL!!! It's would be worth it!!!
I just read some of the comments on that article and two of their members mentioned that they have heard rumors that Malzahn's agent has contacted Texas with interest in the job. Of course, that could just be a bargaining chip to insure a payraise at AU. I can't imagine him moving his family for anything less than a HC position. I suspect an agent's job is to keep his name out there all the time so when the time comes you snag the best HC opportunity. We shall see. I'll be disappointed in him if he jumps ship, honestly. Of course, it's his life to live....I just don't see how he gains anything going to Texas, except perhaps a much larger recruiting field.
