    Well so much for their claim to be "All In". I guess now it's "All Out"

    I doubt it...from what I've heard, Petrino can't even get an interview with the Barn now. Now, perhaps this "search committee" will go over Jacobs head, which seals his fate, but if JJ has a hand...it won't be Bobby P.

    Yep the only thing I'd like to throw in their face is how you fire a coach after winning a national championship two years ago? And what did happen to ALL IN? They are so hypocritical. Some things never change!

    Gene seems like a good guy, and I never had a problem with him. He is going to get a nice buyout so we shouldn't feel too bad for him.
    Not if the NCAA turns up anything against AU with the latest investigation!

    And in which and how many directions do their recruits start to scatter? Wonder if there are any we will pursue? And plz don't bring up Rueben Foster.

    The clause was taken out of Chiz's contract last year...

    Oh. Yes. I forgot about that little nugget.

    Re: Breaking News: Gene Chizik fired!

    Here's clause 13(d) of his original and new contract:

    Paragraph 13 (d) of Chizik’s 2008 contract included a clause that would relieve Auburn from any financial obligation to the coach if the school’s football program was subject to NCAA investigation. From the 2008 contract Chizik signed:

    In the event an investigation is instituted by Auburn, the SEC or the NCAA into alleged major rules violations or significant or repetitive violations involving Coach and/or the football program, during the pendency of the investigation, University shall have the right, after written notice to Coach, to suspend payment of any amount owed to Coach under Paragraph 15 or 16.

    For Chizik’s new agreement with the school, Paragraph 13 (d) was completely deleted and replaced with this clause:

    Coach agrees he will comply with Southeastern Conference Rules and be bound by and comply with the enforcement, penalty, and other disciplinary provisions and procedures of the NCAA and of the Southeastern Conference, including but not limited to the provisions of Article 4 of the Southeastern Conference Constitution and the Southeastern Conference Bylaw 19.8.

    The new clause is a boiler plate statement designed to keep up appearances while removing all of Chizik's accountability to NCAA rules violations.

    Lets just hope Jay Jacobs still hires the coaches. Could be a silver lining with such turble news about Chiznik.

    Sounds about the same to me.
