Report: Auburn president considering a coaching change

"News" broke earlier this afternoon that Auburn president Jay Gogue has told AU Board of Trustees members that he is possibly planning to dismiss head coach Gene Chizik, according to AuburnUndercover.com. According to the report, Gogue has contacted board members about forming a search committee to name a new head coach "within days after the end of the season", should he decide to make a change

The report also stated the athletics director Jay Jacobs would be retained and that executive associate athletics director Tim Jackson, who oversees football, would be reassigned. 

Chizik's buyout presently stands at $10 million but drops to $7.5 million on December 1, according to AL.com.
