Auburn has hired Gene Chizik from Iowa State as its next head coach. Chizik went 5-19 in his two years at Iowa State including a 10 loss streak this season in which he avoided playing Texas, Oklahoma, and Texas Tech. Congrats Auburn, looks like you got the man to lead you into further futility. Seriously, could this have been a worse hire? Turner Gill seemed like the obvious choice. I don’t know if it feels better to beat Auburn, or if it feels better for Auburn to beat Auburn.
Update: In an even crazier turn of events, Iowa State essentially told Auburn they could one up them. I mean, hiring an ex-Auburn defensive coordinator worked out so well for them last time… Will Muschamp has to be wondering why no one’s made an offer that exceeds his head coach in waiting status at Texas.
