We Were Wrong About The Auburn Head Coach Situation

Dumont WalkerSenior Analyst IDecember 14, 2008


Let me be the first to apologize to all of our readers, and anyone else out there who may have read some false information concerning the coaching vacancy at Auburn. On Friday, I received a call from a typically very reliable source who gave me a heads up on who would be taking over at Auburn.

After doing a little snooping around, it appeared that my source was correct so I ran with the story. As it turns out, I could not have been farther from wrong. Will Muschamp is not the head coach at Auburn. The new head coach is Gene Chizik.

To be fair, I don't know anyone who saw Chizik as being a potential fit for that job. To be honest, if I were an Auburn fan I would be furious. Tommy Tuberville had one bad season and he was chased away, and you replace him with a man who has a record of 5-19 at Iowa State? That move does not make a lot of sense to me.

Chizik really has no coaching legacy or a proven track record, but he was employed by Auburn at one point, so I guess that was enough to give him the job.

Anyways, the point of this post was to apologize, because we were wrong here at Walker-Sports, and unlike most media sources, when we botch a story, we don't mind admitting it.

Cheers,
