    Exclamation Latest Info Regarding Chizik

    I'm going to prefix this post with a disclaimer that nothing is final at this point, not even between Auburn and their lawyers.

    From what I have heard from a couple big donors, the rumor among those that would know first is that Chizik has been offered the job and either has or is expected to accept. This is the prevailing rumor amongst the very big donors but isn't confirmed.

    I have also had a couple players let me know that they have no idea what is going on but would not be surprised if Chizik was offered the job and took it based on how things have gone the past 24 hours.

    Nothing is final and these are just high-level rumors. Please don't kill the messenger if Auburn goes elsewhere with their decision.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Chizik's name in Dallas News Story....

    From an hour ago...


    Texas' Will Muschamp: No interest in Auburn


    08:57 PM CST on Friday, December 12, 2008


    By CHUCK CARLTON / The Dallas Morning News
    ccarlton@dallasnews.com


    When he became Mack Brown's designated successor at Texas earlier this season, Will Muschamp said he was willing to wait to become a head coach.
    Nothing has changed, Muschamp said Friday, after unfounded broadcast reports linked his name to the head coach opening at Auburn.
    "I have not interviewed for any jobs," Muschamp said in a statement. "I'm not interested in any jobs. I'm happy here, my family loves Austin and I'm going to be at Texas."
    Normally, Texas doesn't comment on job rumors at other schools.
    But WALA-TV (Mobile-Pensacola-Fort Walton Beach) reported that Muschamp was to be named Auburn's head coach Friday. While no announcement was forthcoming, the report received widespread play from print and broadcast outlets, including ESPN.
    By Friday afternoon, the report had been taken down on WALA's Web site. It was replaced by an interview with Muschamp emphatically saying there was "zero chance" he will leave Texas for Auburn.
    Muschamp served as Auburn's defensive coordinator in 2006 and '07 under the departed Tommy Tuberville before taking a similar position at Texas. He decided to become the Longhorns head coach-designate despite several lucrative openings.
    While Tuberville was successful at Auburn, the job carries several red flags. Tuberville enjoyed an uneasy relationship with key boosters. And a key part of the new coach's job will be competing with in-state rival Alabama, which has quickly become an elite program again under Nick Saban.
    The job has drawn several interesting candidates. The most recent to surface: Iowa State's Gene Chizik, a former defensive coordinator at Auburn and Texas, and TCU's Gary Patterson, who reportedly interviewed Thursday.

    Re: Latest Info Regarding Chizik

    Are these ISU donors or Auburns? What has happened in the last 24 hours besides the rumors or him leaving? Thanks, how could we ever kill you.

    This is an interesting statement. At least it was a quick cut if this is indeed it.

    Re: Latest Info Regarding Chizik

    ISU donors and also somebody in the athletic department. The past 24 hours was meant that the players have had an unusually hard time getting in contact with the Chizik and rumors had already started swirling amongst themselves that something was up.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.
