GENE CHIZIK CONTINUES TO GET PAID DESPITE PROBE
Thu, 16 Jun 2011 01:27 PM EDT

The new contract for coach Chizik allows him to continue getting paid despite an NCAA investigation of possible violations of rules which is a departure from the previous deal that he had. The new deal released by the Associated Press yesterday says that the coach agrees to fully comply with Southeastern Conference and the NCAA rules as well ad disciplinary issues and cites Article no. 4 of the SEC’s constitution which outlines the commissioner’s authority and the Bylaw 19:8 which talks about the enforcement.

The bylaw is currently under revision, the SEC spokesman Charles Blood said that its not yet ready for distribution. His attorney Russ Campbell of Birmingham has declined to make a comment regarding Auburn officials. The old contract was signed back in 2009 and includes a stipulation which allows for auburn to not be paid if his program is currently inter investigation. It reads “alleged major rules violations or significant or repetitive violations.”

Auburn has been the target of lots of negative publicity as well as strict NCAA rules scruitnity in the months prior to wining the national title. The NCAA is also investigating the hiring of Heisman Trophy winner quarterback Cam Newton, who was shopped for by a pay for play scheme. But auburn has yet to be charged with any wrong doing.

Then there is this story of HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel in which for former players said back in March that they were paid money during their college careers. Chizik was also rewarded for wining the national title this second season which now places him among the highest paid coaches in college football. His new deal extends right through 2015 and includes a buyout of $10 million if he is fired this season. Basketball spreads

If the coach wants to leave the school at anytime he will need to pay $3.5 million. He can also make a million in bonuses which includes $100,000 for winning the SEC championship game and $50,000 if he plays in it and the same amount if he wins the BCS bowl game. With all this money being offered it is no wonder that players and coaches are both so willing to win, unlike other colleges where players are coaches are more or less underrated.
