Gene Chizik fired as Auburn Head Coach
So, it’s official, Gene Chizik has been fired as the head coach of Auburn Football. There were rumblings earlier today but now it’s become official, a press conference to announce this move is expected at 4:30 ET sunday evening.
Despite the recent struggles, I want to thank Gene Chizik for the 2010 season. Even though most will blame the title on Cam Newton, he had a tough job of keeping a distracted team focused and staying motivated through it all. Many other teams would have crumbled, but instead they stepped up and did what several other great Auburn teams failed to do — to win it all.
But in the end, it was the right move.
War Damn Eagle Coach Chizik.
