Chizik Goes Up-Tempo With His Defense

Auburn safety Demetruce McNeal can tell a big difference in practice since head coach Gene Chizik — a former D-coordinator his own self — has taken over for Ted Roof’s old unit during bowl practice:

“It has been so much up-tempo with him.  You can see the big difference between him and Coach Roof.  Roof was kind of calm and tried to set things down.  Coach Chizik comes in the meeting room and everybody just stops.  I can tell a big difference now from the linebackers from when Roof was here.”

Chizik is running the defense as AU prepares for Virginia in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.  He’s also searching for two new coordinators… one of whom apparently won’t be Florida State’s Mark Stoops.
