“Auburn’s interest in Gene speaks to his (Chizik’s) reputation,” Pollard said. “We saw that same potential in Gene two years ago. He is an outstanding football coach, tremendous recruiter and inspiring leader. When your organization has talented staff members, other schools express interest in their services.”
When was the last time an AD actively campaigned for a better school to steal his football coach?
UPDATE: Nice work, Pollard--Chizik to Auburn.
