Auburn’s head coach Gene Chizik is currently one of the top paid coaches in college football now making $3.5 million up from the $2.2 he was making, and Auburn fans everywhere will agree, it’s worth it! Coach Chizik has signed a 5 year contract extension with the tigers making him Auburns head coach through the 2015 season.
Former University of Central Florida defensive coordinator, Iowa state head coach, and University of Florida Alumni Gene Chizik has been Auburns head coach replacing Tommy Tuberville since 2008. In the two years Chizik has been with Auburn he has worked wonders for the Tigers taking the team from 5-7 record to 8-5 record and a victory over Northwestern in the 2010 Outback Bowl in one year.
The 2010 season was by far the best of his coaching years when he led Auburn to an undefeated season including the biggest comeback in school history when they played Alabama and went from being down 24-0 to defeat them in a 28-27 victory. Than into the SEC Championship game beating out the Oregon Ducks for the title. Chizik has a 22-5 start with Auburn and as of now they’re on a 15 game winning streak and not to mention his 4 coach of the year awards. I personally am truly honored to not only have such a remarkable head coach but also an honorable individual with astounding charisma. Looking forward to many more years with Gene Chizik as the head coach of the Auburn Tigers! War Eagle!
