Auburn president Jay Gogue is preparing to possibly replace football coach Gene Chizik, according to a report from AuburnUndercover.com.
The website reports Gogue has informed some members of Auburn’s Board of Trustees of his plan. Here’s more from the report:
“Gogue also told the trustees to whom he talked that he plans to retain athletics director Jay Jacobs and reassign executive associate athletics director Tim Jackson, who oversees football.
“In telephone calls with some members of the Board of Trustees last week and early this week, Gogue said he intends to form a committee to help with the decision and plans to move quickly, ideally naming a new head coach within days after the end of the season should the decision be made that Chizik will not be retained.”
Louisville offensive coordinator Shawn Watson is a potential candidate to replace Chizik, according to AuburnUndercover.
To be clear, the report doesn’t state that Gogue has decided to fire Chizik. Gogue is preparing for the possibility, according to AuburnUndercover.
That’s with the expectation that things are about to get worse for Auburn. The Tigers (2-7, 0-6 SEC) will host Georgia on Saturday before playing Alabama A&M at home and Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
At that point, the possibility of Chizik being out might turn into a reality.
