How ’bout this? “In a 27-year coaching career, Chizik had never left a job because of somebody else’s decision.”
That’s what happens when you’re the guy with the program that turned in the fourth-worst offensive and third-worst defensive showings in the SEC in the last six years. Maybe we should be impressed that Auburn managed to win three games last year, given that.
It’s obvious Chizik wants to coach again. That’s why he spent the time strenuously objecting to Selena Roberts’ report the other day. (By the way, “we did it right” includes spending $77,000 to have private security enforce Auburn football player curfews during last season? Ho-kay, fine.)
“It’s been a time of reflection. I’m not one to dwell on the past and look at all the ‘what-ifs’ and things of that nature, but naturally, you reflect,” Chizik said. “But I’ve also stayed busy. I’m in a place right now where I’m continuing to map out a plan.”
Careful with that kind of talk, Geno. Remember what happened with the last SEC head coach who had a plan.
