Default Gene Chizik out at Auburn?

http://www.cbssports.com/collegefoot...ball/20890280/

Guess a national Championship only goes so far.

Quote:
It looks more likely than ever that Gene Chizik will not survive his Auburn team's disastrous 2012 to coach again in 2013.
The Sporting News revealed details of a Thursday report from 247Sports affiliate AuburnUndercover.com (pay link), one citing multiple sources claiming Auburn president Jay Gogue has told members of the school's board of trustees that he is making preparations to fire Chizik.
Though the final decision on Chizik has not been made, the report states Gogue intends to form a committee to help with the search for Chizik's replacement, a search that could begin “within days after the end of the season should the decision be made that Chizik will not be retained.”
The only potential candidate named by the sources was (somewhat surprisingly) Louisville offensive coordinator Shawn Watson.
The report indicates that embattled Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs will remain in his current position but that executive associate athletic director Tim Jackson -- who helps oversee the football program -- will be reassigned.
Gogue issued a statement on Oct. 25 that "the football program will be evaluated in an objective, thorough and professional process" at the close of the 2012 season but he has had no other public comment on the Tigers' 2-7 record, one that will likely lead to the program's worst season since 1952.
Chizik's dismissal would represent an unprecedented fall from grace for a coach only two seasons removed from winning a national championship. That the gears are already turning toward his departure is hardly unexpected given the Tigers' abysmal performance this season. Despite returning a wealth of 2011 starters, the loss of offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn has left the Tigers at 116th in the FBS in total offense. Among SEC teams, only Kentucky is outgained by a wider margin per play than the Tigers' mark of minus-.79 per-snap. Barring a miraculous upset vs. Georgia on Saturday or Alabama in the season finale, the Tigers will finish 3-9 and 0-8 in the SEC.
The possibility of those miracles likely represents the only reason that Gogue's decision isn't final yet. But without Chizik pulling off one of them, it's now next to impossible to imagine him coaching on Auburn's sideline next season.

Chizik has proven to be an average to below average coach unless he has an amazing talent at qb. Given Auburn's history/tradition, I'd be surprised if he didn't get canned after this year.

If they had any other QB besides Newton in 2010 they wouldn't have won the MNC; the guy was just a beast.

Outside of that year his tenure at Auburn has been on the bad side of mediocre.

It wasn't just Cam, it was Gus too.

Once he lost Gus, he was done.

IF he beats Georgia and Bama, he will keep his job. The players need to keep their chins up and play hard for their coach. They have the talent to win, but not the coaching to win

He was hired to keep his nose out of the athletic booster's business. He was told to just coach and did not ask questions.

I heard on 107.5 this afternoon their top choice is Shawn Watson, OC for Louisville. I have no knowledge about this situation, but he really seems to be a
stretch......no SEC experience. I'm sure all the Allbarn people are real excited about this.

This.

You'd think this would eventually come back to bite them. Bowden was talking to everyone that would listen until they paid him enough to shut up, so maybe Gene'll come out of this a very rich, unemployed man.

They also had a team loaded with upperclassmen that Chizik didn't recruit. Some of those other players went to the NFL. Newton was great but he fell into a perfect situation of Malzahn and lots of mature players on both sides of the ball.

He'll get his $10 mil (or $7.5 mil after Jan. 1) and he'll be perfectly fine.


Auburn, on the other hand, they need to make a solid hire and I don't see Watson being that hire.

yeah, terrible head coach. He failed at Iowa State too. He made 2 good moves, getting Gus and getting Cam. They're gone, he's had amazing recruiting classes, but his teams have been bad since then.

He needs to be fired. He was an awful hire.

There are so many better options out there to be HC at Auburn.
