Auburn took away some of the distractions out of the Distraction Bowl. The Peach Bowl looked like a matchup with a pair of coaches in Central Florida’s Scott Frost and Auburn’s Gus Malzahn whose futures were in the spotlight. However, late Sunday, a person familiar with the situation told the AP that Malzahn has agreed to a new seven-year deal to remain at the school. The person spoke of the deal on condition of anonymity Sunday because it hadn’t been officially announced. That should end any ongoing debate about Malzahn, who faced questions about whether he’d stay with the Tigers or move on to Arkansas where he was considered a target for that job. The questions for Frost, introduced as Nebraska’s new coach Sunday, and his bowl role with the Knights will continue. The undefeated, 10th-ranked Knights (12-0, No. 12 College Football Playoffs) will play No. 7 Auburn (10-3, No. 7 CFP), the Southeastern Conference runner-up, on Jan. 1. Frost was hired by Nebraska shortly after UCF won a 62-55, double overtime shootout with Memphis to capture the American Athletic Conference. Frost was introduced Sunday as Cornhuskers coach and reiterated that he would coach the Knights in the bowl game. “I don’t want to leave the players down there without a coach,” he said. “They deserve to have the best chance they possibly can, especially in a bowl game they qualified for.” Malzahn’s team fell to playoff-bound Georgia in the SEC title game Saturday and there were plenty of postgame questions about his plans. Malzahn was steadfast and firm that he would stay at Auburn. “That’s where I want to be,” he reiterated Sunday. Malzahn has done well keeping outside talk away from the Tigers, said Auburn running back Kerryon Johnson. “If you know Gus, he doesn’t even look at outside noise,” Johnson said after Georgia’s 28-7 victory. “He’s about as one-tracked minded as it gets. That man was focused on winning the SEC championship.” Frost, the former Nebraska quarterback, couldn’t hide his decision from his players, and the team tweeted a celebration photo after its AAC title win with the caption: “Good luck back home, Coach.” UCF interim coach Troy Walters said Saturday was an emotional day,
