Gene Chizik isn't bitter about getting fired by Auburn and still believes he can be a successful head coach. Beyond that, he is coy about his future coaching plans. Chizik shed little light Monday on when he hopes to get back in coaching, or whether the former defensive coordinator would be willing to go back to being an assistant. He worked for ESPN on national signing day and said he's been consulting defensively with some teams. He has mostly stayed out of the public eye for the past five months. Chizik can be afford to be choosy about his next job since he received a $7.5 million buyout after his November firing, paid in monthly installments. ''I can't pigeonhole myself whether I want to be this, this or this,'' Chizik said. ''I'm very confident in my abilities, both as a head coach and as a defensive coordinator, absolutely.'' Getting fired after a monumental collapse two years after winning a national championship hasn't ...

During Auburn’s spring game, Mincy slipped through receiver Dimitri Reese‘s blockers on a screen and lit him up with a devastating blow. Moncy was flagged 15 yards for targeting the receiver above the shoulders, which leads to an automatic ejection. That’s right, a player was ejected...
