Ex UT and Auburn defensive coordinator Gene Chizik appears to be the next head coach at Auburn. Chizik was toiling away at Iowa State for the last couple of years.
So after many Muschamp rumors, Auburn goes back to the first D-coordinator that Mack lured away to Texas.
This surely isn't a WOW hire for Auburn. Chizik was definitely an up and comer at Texas which is why it was so puzzling that he would take the Iowa State job. He was 5-19 at Iowa State over the last two years.
This now leaves Iowa State looking for a head coach. They got pretty lucky when Chizik accepted the position, so I'm not sure where they go from here.
