Auburn needs a president the football team can be proud of.

Less than two weeks after Auburn University president Steven Leath had his ass handed to him by the board of trustees, he gone.

Steven Leath is leaving as Auburn University president, the university announced in a Friday night news release.

The decision was mutual between Leath and members of the board of trustees’ presidential assessment working group and came “after extensive discussions about the university’s leadership,” according to the release.

Yeah, I’ll bet it was mutual.  At least he leaves having signed off on that terrific Malzahn contract.  What a legacy!

    Maybe Auburn can just combine the positions and start the search for the new combo HC/College President.

  3. Didn’t Gordon Gee day he worked for Jim Tressel rather than the other way around?

      Dirtiest program in the SEC by far, and one of the worst in CFB. Starts with a really sick fan base but it goes through the Athletic Department, coaching staff, and ends in their administration. Should have been kicked to the curb long ago. Changing President’s names will not stop them. NCAA sold out on them long ago, nothing will change. Right there with old SMU and Miami, just like ohio and State Penn, all rotten.

    Not to go “all in”, but I can remember one other college president that I would have loved to see the regents give the boot.

    Love the story about Saban’s focus while talking football in a restaurant.

    I think this is exactly what Gordon Gee meant when asked if he was going to fire Jim Tressel, he said: “I just hope Coach Tressel doesn’t fire me.”
