Chizik Era (2009-2012)

  • On December 13, 2008, Auburn University hired Chizik to succeed former head coach Tommy Tuberville
  • In his first year, Chizik led the Tigers to the 2010 Outback Bowl, a fairly quick turnaround for a team that went 5-7 the year before
  • The next year, he led the team to a 14-0 record and the BCS National Championship—the first undisputed national championship in school history
  • With the loss of several players from that team who opted to go pro, Chizik’s third team slipped to 8-5.
  • The 2012 season, however, was more than disappointing as the team finished 3-9 and was outscored 150-21 in its final three SEC games—including a 49-0 loss to Alabama in the Iron Bowl.
  • Overall, Auburn went 33-19 (.635) during Chizik’s tenure as head football coach. However, not counting the 2010 national title season, his record was 19-19, including 7-17 in SEC play.  The 2010 season was the only winning conference record that Chizik had as a head coach at both Iowa State and Auburn.
  • Chizik was fired after four seasons and it cost Auburn $11.09 million
