    Chizik to Get Paid Even if NCAA Probes

    Auburn coach Gene Chizik's new contract allows him to be paid if there is an NCAA investigation into possible major rules violations, a departure from his previous deal.
    Chizik's new deal, released to The Associated Press on Tuesday, merely says the coach agrees to comply with Southeastern Conference and NCAA rules and disciplinary procedures and cites Article 4 of the SEC's constitution outlining the commissioner's authority and Bylaw 19:8, which deals with enforcement.
    The bylaw is under revision, and SEC spokesman Charles Bloom said it is not ready for distribution. Chizik's attorney, Russ Campbell of Birmingham, declined comment and Auburn officials had no immediate comment.
    The old one signed in June 2009 included a stipulation allowing Auburn to suspend pay to Chizik if his program is being investigated by the university, the SEC or the NCAA for "alleged major rules violations or significant or repetitive violations."
    Auburn has faced considerable negative publicity and NCAA scrutiny in the months before and after winning the national title.
    The NCAA is investigating the recruitment of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Cam Newton, whose father shopped him to Mississippi State in a pay-for-play scheme. Auburn has not been charged with wrongdoing.
    Plus, four former players told HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" in a March report that they were paid thousands of dollars during their college careers.
    Chizik was rewarded for winning a national title in his second season with a contract that places him among college football's highest paid coaches.
    His new deal, which extends through 2015, includes a sliding-scale buyout that starts at $10 million if he's fired this season.
    If Chizik wants to leave at any time, he'll owe Auburn $3.5 million.

    But wait.... there was no wrong doing and all of this Cam Newton business was "Total garbage" per Eugene. Seems strange that he would want that put into his new contract when he knows for a fact that no rules were violated last season.

    So Gene made sure that if he cheats he still gets paid. Must be more "blessings from above". It seems like the people that do the most talking about God being on their side turn out to be the biggest hypocrites.

    I'm sure Auburn doesn't mind now that they raked in a bunch of cash from the "title." Financially they are probably still ahead.

    Re: Chizik to Get Paid Even if NCAA Probes

    Knowing Auburn boosters and the way this has played out, chizdick, knows the boosters paid for Newton but is playing dumb. He is just telling the boosters/Auburn that he will keep his mouth shut as long as he gets paid. Tells me an assistant or the boosters will take the fall if anything happens.

    People shouldn't underestimate the boosters in this whole deal. Bowden and Tubberville did not want to play along with pay for play so the boosters got rid of them. If I was chizdick, I would want the same clause just to make sure I got my $$$

    The Cam Newton drama, this new contract, former players coming out stating they got paid.... this is what happens when you put big money boosters on the BOT. They run Auburn. Lowder damn near cost Auburn their accreditation as a university because of his corruption. Putting these guys in a position of power like that is INSANE. It goes beyond athletics.

    Lowder was appointed by the governor to the BOT at Auburn. After a term the governor was not going to re-appoint him to stay on the BOT. So Lowder simply got in bed with the candidate running against him in the governor's race (huge donations to his campaign), the old governor got voted out, the new governor re-appointed him to the BOT again. This is just another example of how corrupt these guys are. Yikes.

    If, and hopefully when, they get hard evidence against Auburn you would think they would consider a full death penalty with as deep as the corruption goes. Seriously, even the BOT is corrupt there.

    Thanks, I couldn't remember lowder's name but you laid it all out there. it is entirely possible that chizdick was hired while Lowder/boosters were paying players. Now chizdick just wants to get paid to play dumb. Or he did a good job keeping his nads clean and doesn't want to lose money because everyone else was playign dirty. It would be very easy for a coach at Auburn to look the other way. plenty of slime balls to do the dirty work

    This article sums Lowder up pretty well.

    Re: Chizik to Get Paid Even if NCAA Probes

    I wouldn't hate Chizik then and now for leaving Iowa State had he gone 19-5 in his two years here.

    The way he is cashing in is pathetic.
