Gene Chizik has been told that he is out at Auburn as the Tigers head coach a source just told me.— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) November 25, 2012
When’s the last time a head coach got canned two years after winning a MNC?
Filed under Auburn's Cast of Thousands
Saw in another report that all the assistant coaches were fired also and that they could re-apply with the new head coach.
Just another footnote to Aubie’s “We are family MNC”.
All in/All out.
YESSSS! That right there is a sort of poetry.
It’s what them Japanese call a haiku– Barner style. :)
Poor auburn….. Not that’s what cheating does for you. They spent all their money on cam they couldn’t afford anyone else Go Dawgs we always get the last laugh on aubum
Does he get to keep all those cool short sleeve warm up jackets?
I bet you could get Chiz’s book real cheap in the bargain bin. It would make a great Christmas present.
Going to the relatives in Columbus!!
“Working with Jacobs on the search committee are noted Auburn alumni Mac Crawford, Pat Sullivan, and Bo Jackson, the statement said. ”
Lets hope bo doesnt lead the interviews /questioning- that could take a while.
Bo Jackson I think.
Where have you gone, Pat Dye? An “All-In” nation turns its lonely eyes to you
Chizick is gonna have to find a new stick of gum
Karma is a beyotch!
I hate Auburn as much as the next guy but it is really scary to think that we were not far from their level of derpitude a few years ago, all we needed to have was an offensive coordinator who was actually as bad as many people thought Bobo was. The main difference between us at our lowest and Auburn was our ability to score points, but we had an element of fans trying just as hard as they could to run off our coaches on our competent side of the ball as they could.
It is a thin line I fear. I think Auburn’s problem is with player development and strength and conditioning. From Heath Evans’s comments, it sounds like they did little or nothing, and it caught up with them.
Chizik gets $7.5 mil in monthly installments over the next 48 months. It’s going to be tough living on $156k/month.
that is the real story–hard to feel sorry for him–and I don’t-we had a special brotherly rival–now we don;t
Agree. I used to have a warm regard for them but I think Saban has turned them a bit deranged. This is evident in the # of posts that read “I’ll always appreciate CGC for that magical 2010 season…” Or better yet: “he’s a good man that made a bad hire with Loefler but Jacobs is the real problem…”
you think he will see it….
Before it’s all said and done….With the Lawyer’s and everybody else who has their hands in the pie it will be 6 or 7 years and then it won’t matter.
Jim Donnan has a whole warehouse full of stuff that Chizik may be interested in for investment purposes. And a whole freezer full of popsicles.
This is a sad day for Bulldawg Nation. Auburn was a guaranteed W for the foreseeable future with that guy on the sidelines.
there’s no guarantee that the next guy will be any better than Chiz. The same dopes who hired him are hiring the new guy. Chiz couldnt help that the economy cratered and their money guys all went bust. It’s hard to hire new talent when you suddenly dont have the same big budget that brought you Cam Newton.
I thought I would never see the day that College Football became so much about the money.
Crazy fact about Auburn’s last 3 coaches.
Terry Bowden fired from AU 4 seasons after 1993 undefeated season,
Tommy Tuberville fired from AU 4 seasons after 2004 undefeated season.
Gene Chizik fired from AU 2 seasons after 2010 undefeated season.
At least they had 3 undefeated seasons.
Hey, they paid a lot of money for those undefeated seasons!
I thought Bowden ran away midseason. He wasn’t fired, was he?
he was forced out..he may have technically resigned
If you were to offer me an undefeated season and a BCS title– with the caveat that that our team must then fall off a cliff for 2 seasons causing our coach to be fired as a result– I still think I would accept the offer of a magical season and a BCS title. Nobody remembers the the 9-3 and 10-2 seasons, it is the titles that we treasure. Chizik and a BCS title and 7.5 million coming to him. Hard to feel sad for him.
Scott, I’m really,really, really glad that’s a hypothetical scenario.
Maybe Chiz and SOD can go fishing together..maybe Bill Dance will let one of them wear his hat.
Goldman Sachs would like to talk to you about purchasing some mortgage backed securities.
Ultimately, you play to win the title. Period. Everything else is window dressing.
But who will coach the team for the bowl game?
So how much would Chiz get for a tell-all?
How much you wanna bet there is a nondisclosure agreement somewhere in his contract?
Of course there is , you fool. Are you familiar with the laws on such things.?
That clause will be Beefed Up before its all said and done.
Yes, I am actually. Not from a lawyer’s perspective, just as someone who has read and signed a few of them.
Nope…had to say everything the date it was signed.
