The Auburn Tiger Head Coach Gene Chizik is really on the hot seat. He had an amazing 2010 season with quarterback Cam Newton and running back Michael Dyer but thinks haven’t been going so well in Auburn, Alabama in 2011 and 2012.
In 2011, Ted Roof was the defensive coordinator and that seemed to be most of the problem. In 2012, Brian Van Gorder came in and it didn’t seem to help very much. Losing tight end Phillip Lutzenkirschen to injury didn’t help on the offensive side of the ball either. Scot Loeffler hasn’t been a stellar offensive coordinator as well. He came on to coach Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators as quarterback coach in 2009 and it looked as if Tebow become worse under his tutelage. Joker Phillips was just fired as the head coach of the Kentucky Wildcats yesterday by Mitch Barnhart. Could Chizik take over at Kentucky? Will Auburn even let Chizik coach out the end of the season?
