Said that only way Chiz survives is if they beat Vandy, Tx A&M and UGA in the SEC along with New Mex and Al A&M...which is not going to happen. That said I asked him who would be on the short list of canidates.
He said head coaches would be in no paticular order:
Holgerson at W.Va
Franklin at Vandy
Trooper will be retained as he is "too valuable as a recruiter."
tifwiw...he is an auburn alum and was an all-sec player in the early 60's who is very well connected. As we all know Pat Dye is the man behind the curtain and a change at athletic director wouldnt be a huge surprise but would only serve as a window dressing.

Mahlzahn took a pay cut to leave Auburn.
Holgersen can't compete in the Big12. And won't leave so soon
Franklin won't put up with Pat Dye.
Petrino probably. Not sure if they can win with him since they don't have a QB.
Kirby is too smart to compete in the same state as his current boss.
WHO CARES WHAT HAPPENS AT AUBURN!!!!!!! WE SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON US!!!!! WHERE THE FRONT RUNNER EVERYBODY ELSE IS FOLLOWING!!!!
I don't get these rumors that state "they will retain TT or BVG".
There is no way they will get an elite coach if the AD tells him he doesn't have full control over selecting his staff.
Also, Kirby isn't going anywhere unless it's as HC.

That is like Bama fans having another Christmas if that happens!
Well jazzmg, you do. Remember about 16 days ago when you commented on here about auburn's Quan Bray & his arrest? Now, what were you saying?
So basically he is saying bowl game or you're out.
Well, ... Bye!
PS: I see most of that wish list passing on the job if it comes with the caveat of keeping troopah. I don't see any of them agreeing to not having control.
Question: Is "too valuable as a recruiter" code for he employs the bagmen and knows too much about how the pay for play process works?
I don't think Petrino would put up with Dye either. There is a reason he has turned them down twice before. IMO
"If you can handle the PAIN of discipline, you will never have to deal with the Pain of Disappointment" - Coach Nick Saban
Holgerson and Dye could be drinking buddies. A perfect fit.
Considering Holgo's reputation as a "direct" kind of guy, I can only imagine his reaction to Dye's attempts to interject. Also, how does such a family/Christian based group respond to Holgo's Price like activities?
Petrino will end up at UT. Auburn won't be able to pull a big name coach.
Petrino would develop a QB. Its not the talent level that is the problem at AU, its player development. Chiz's staff is terrible at it. Petrino would probably mold a Frazier type into a decent QB. Dye would have to go though. Petrino doesn't seem like the type to put up with an overbearing administration.
They can't afford to have TT leave but it has nothing to do with his value as a recruiter.
I would love for auburn to hire Petrino. He can't recruit with Saban and he can't beat Saban on the field.
I hope the keep trooper that will show just how stupid they are.
I laughed out loud.
"BINGO! That was a goody!" - Coach Bryant on Sunday afternoons with Coca Cola & Golden Flakes
Would love the Petrino hire since it would make Dye look like an even bigger hypocrite with all his Chizik is a great man comments.
