Jacobs non-committal

Live from AUO: Jay Jacobs neither confirms or denies the Gene Chizik stories.

He says The Process is ongoing.

Asked if he got his guy, Jacobs said: "Nope, we're still in the process."

Asked how close he is to a resolution, Jacobs said: "If everything continues to go well in the next few days, that would help narrow down the process pretty well. We'll go from there. We've just got to move along. It's been good so far."

Asked directly if Chizik is Auburn's coach, Jacobs said: "we're still working through the deal."

ALSO OF NOTE: Protesters were in attendance at the airport. Several were boisterous. This is not a good sign for Jacobs, Chizik or Auburn in general.

That leaves room for Chizik NOT to the the HC, right?

JGT at 7:44 yesterday

'This has NOTHING to do with Auburn in any way, but ...

the Yankees and A.J. Burnett have agreed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract.

This, to me, is more far-fetched than Gene Chizik interviewing for the Auburn job.'

I am guessing Jacobs won't take the cigar out of his mouth at the press conference and say, "I love it when a plan comes together," like I hoped.

scottatl, does this mean they go after Peavy again?

In other news, ESPN reported that the University of Auburn hired Gene Chizik as it's head coach. This is how relevant Auburn is with this hire.

Jacobs commments tells me that he has little to do with this hiring process.

So I guess when everyone was getting excited about Muschamp, Jay Jacobs sez to emself, "Wow, these people will apparently love me if I just pick an ex-D coordinator who left for Texas. Now watch this..."

"Chizik has called assistant coaches from other schools to compile his new coaching staff, said someone familiar with the situation."

Bad sports month for me

4:30 PM  
Blogger Roman said...

Asked directly if Chizik is Auburn's coach, Jacobs said "we're still working through the deal."

That confirms that the offer is on the table and more or less confirms that it has been accepted in principle.

Something else has been confirmed for me today as well and that is this: The vast majority of posters on football message boards and blogs are people with nothing worth saying who insist saying it over and over again. The quality of posts seems to have some non-linear inverse relationship to the quantity.

Since JGT has been mentioning and PMarsh (among others), I don't feel that it should be out of line to link PMarsh's commentary on the hiring of Chizik. Go read.

And please, stop with all of the melodrama already. It was old before it even began.

4:30 PM  
Blogger AUTiger3 said...

Still no official word from either ISU or AU other than Jacobs saying "Nope" when asked if he had his guy. That's good enough for me to hope this isn't happening.

Well, at least he has been a head coach.

He has coached in the SEC.

He, um, knows Auburn and the area.

Um, he, well, probably still has some orange and blue clothing... and um, well - lets see... um...

I can see it already, our recruiting is going to be AUSOME.

Coach Chizik: Hey son, this is Coach Chizik. We'd love for you to be a part of the Auburn program, I'm going to get things turned around.

Recruit: This is who?

Coach Chizik: Gene Chizik, I'm taking over at Auburn and guys like you are going to help us get back to 3rd place in the SEC west.

Recruit: Sorry Coach, Neil Callaway is on the other line. I'm sticking with the Blazers.

4:32 PM

What if they hired him to make one last slap at CTT?

There is a linear relationship between the position of my middle finger relative to the rest of my hand...

Well, since he has been an unsuccessful head coach before, at least he knows what NOT to do. Muschamp didn't even know that.

4:34 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

This is what is on the front page of Iowa State's Rivals page:

"According to multiple reports, Gene Chizik will be Auburn's next head coach. No, really, they actually hired him. While it's bad news for Iowa State that its here today and gone tomorrow head coach of the past two seasons was a titanic failure and colossal bust, it's good news that the decision makers at Auburn can't count and have unburdened Iowa State of its most unprepared, overmatched and incompetent head coach of the modern era."

This is sad.

Stay classy Auburn fans. I'm not crazy about the hire either, but dang, can we at least wait till the end of 2009 before we burn a good man in effigy.

4:40 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

Well, not that I am a Chizik guy, but for all the negativity, he was the DC on the 13-0 Auburn team. He was the DC on the National Championship Texas team that beat USC. Hmmmm. Only bad decision he made was going into a tough situation at Iowa St hoping to turn it around. If he is the next Auburn coach, I do believe his pedigree is better than Boom. I would rather have Paul Johnson. But, it seems beggars can't be choosy. Recruiting is about working non-stop. I don't think a losing coach with the Dolphins had much pizazz with young recruits, but when they see you over and over, well, that's the difference.

On the basketball side, the same would go for Billy Donovon at UF. Not much sizzle to hire him, but he is relentless when it comes to recruiting. Sizzle has less to do with recruiting than does hard work.

4:49 PM  
Blogger Will said...

I don't get where everyone says that ISU was a tough gig. Haven't other people won there in the past? If so, why did Chizik struggle so much?

It seems to me that the only argument in favor of Chizik is, he was a great DC at AU and TX, only one prob there, we aren't looking at hiring him as DC. I noticed that ISU's D gave up over 34 pts in 9 of their 10 losses this yr and gave up over 50 to two of their opponents. Of course those two opponents who scored fitty were in the top 15 at the time...I suspect that he'll play against more than 2 top 15 teams each yr if he comes to coach at AU.

We lost some tough games this yr, but we never gave up a half a hundred. GC did it twice.

I am still standing by earlier contention that the Chizik pick is one where they scare us with it to make the other candidate seem better. Had Chizik stayed at Texas, I think everyone would have felt better. He was ill-advised to take the Iowa State job.

I only pray to God that I am right.

One thing is for sure, it does not seem like Auburn has had Chizik done and dusted all along. I had drinks with an Iowa State assistant coach a few weeks ago and he knew Tubs was in trouble, but nothing else with regard to Auburn's future HC being his boss.

4:55 PM  
Blogger FSJ-Midnight Mover said...

Supposedly Chizik wants to tell his players first according to what I read on al.com.

Have no idea if that is true or not, but it might explain the wimpy responses from Jacobs.

Blogger GregD said...

If it is Chizik - AU fans will support him once the dust and shock settles.

4:55 PM  
Blogger McBain said...

Jay G., I am still holding out hope that this is not true. How can this hire be justified? I'm sure the President's inbox is exploding. This cannot go through if true. This job is going to be difficult enough. AU does not need to have a divided fan base on top of everything else. What is your feel for this?

4:56 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

Honestly, and I know I drop his name all the time, but Howard Schellenberger is a better choice for a Head Coach...Am I right?

What is the saying, better to keep your mouth shut and have people assume you are an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. Well, Gene unfortunately has removed some doubt about his head coaching ability.

Let's assume that for the sake of argument that his record at Iowa State was of no importance, then his decision to take that job should tell you something about his decision making abilities. CTT took over a bad ol miss program suffering from probation and turned it around.

A very burned out CTT is still better than anyone on the interview list.

At least when they replaced me at Uof L they got Rick Pitino. Think about that for a moment.

Denny:

I'm a better choice for HC...

If its Chizik, I think it shows AU was suprised by Tub's walking.

If he builds a great staff and recruits his tail off, we'll just have to wait and see.

4:59 PM  
Blogger Steve from Columbia said...

scottatl, I disagree. This is a bold move. I wish I had the testicles required to make a move like this.

Folks, with regard to Chizik, there were many people that wanted him as the head coach before he jumped ship for Texas.

Another thing to note is that Iowa State got worse, not better, when Chizik showed up.

Did you just start a post with a "Howard Schnellenberger is a better hire," then end it with a thought about keeping your mouth shut? That's funny, seeing as how that crazy old man has no idea how to keep quiet.

5:06 PM  
Blogger Denny Crum said...

I believe, for all intents and purposes, that it is done. Too much other circumstantial evidence is being to pile up.

Then the only that is left to do is for him to assemble a killer staff and for Auburn fans to get behind their program and quit this talk about giving up seats and not going to games.

The most important pick will be OC and the rest of the O staff. I am curious to see what happens.

I mean about keeping a mouth shut is like Chizik went someplace and removed some doubt about his headcoaching ability. Meaning he has a lot to prove now, more so than if he hadn't been the HC at Iowa state and lost 10 straight. That is why Schenllenberger is a better hire.

Although I didn't think they would hire him, I did mention Chizik's name at the beginning of this. I only did it to compare him to Boom to point out that a good DC doesn't always make a good HC. So, if he is the new HC and he becomes great, you're welcome, if he stinks, I'm sorry.

Kent St. and South Dakota ST. (which is not near Memphis.. sorry guys, had to throw it in) and ISU lost to UNLV. Almost as bad as losing to ULM.

This last year of Auburn football has been a prime example of stupicide. We have been committing serial stupicide. It started with the hiring of Franklin. It continued with the firing of Franklin.

Jeez - I fell asleep again and something happened. I thought I was dreaming.

Auburn hasn't officially announced Gene Chizik as its new coach, and one of the big reasons for that is he first wants to tell his Iowa State players good-bye in a team meeting, said someone close to Chizik on Saturday afternoon.

The deal is done. Chizik, who has been Iowa State's coach for two years, is tentatively scheduled to be introduced as Auburn's new coach on Monday. He was Auburn's defensive coordinator from 2002-04.

How can you believe anything from him? The protesters heckling him certainly knew Chizik was the coach. Are AD's like coaches themselves now? You know they're lying when their lips are moving?
