Auburn, AL (Sports Network) - Two years after leading Auburn to a surprising national championship, Gene Chizik is out as the Tigers' head football coach.
Chizik, with the help of Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton, guided the Tigers to the top of the college football world in 2010, but this year's squad was rarely competitive and finished with a 3-9 record, including 0-8 in the SEC.
The move comes a day after Auburn was humiliated in a 49-0 loss to arch-rival Alabama in the annual Iron Bowl.
