He is the son of Vince Dooley, and from his results at UT he might be related to Tom Foolery.

It makes me think there won't be a change at Auburn. Doesn't he have like a 7 million dollar buyout?

Buyout goes down if we wait a little while longer. I highly doubt Chizik has even a slim chance of returning.



Also read that they get to pay the buyout in monthly installments over a very long period of time making it easier for Auburn than having to pay it all out at once or in a short period of time. If he or any of the assistants that are fired find other employment during the buyout period, they get paid the difference or something to that effect. It seems likely that a lot of these guys will find employment somewhere else, probably not making as much but that will lessen the pain for Auburn. Found the info:

"Auburn would also have to pay to terminate the high-priced contracts of its national championship-winning position coaches (the richest of which pays receivers coach/assistant head coach Trooper Taylor $425,000 per season) and two-season deals for its first-year coordinators, Brian VanGorder (at $825,000 per season) and Scot Loeffler (at $500,000 per season). The total bill for a complete staff housecleaning could rise to more than $10 million --and that's before the Tigers start paying salaries for their new staff.

But there's some good news for Auburn, too. Each of the buyouts is payable in monthly installments over the length of the contract rather than as a lump sum -- Chizik's doesn't expire until Dec. 31, 2015 -- and any salary earned by the fired coaches could be deducted from the buyout. The contracts also require Chizik and the other coaches to "use reasonable efforts to obtain other employment and/or income from third parties.”

So factoring in the pro-rated buyout, the likelihood of deductions, and the incoming windfall from the future SEC network and new league TV contract, and it's fair to say Auburn can afford to start over. But being able to afford it and saying it's "affordable" are two different things -- even at an SEC school like Auburn, a $7.7 million price tag is still something close to a $7.7 million price tag.

So don't expect the buyout to stop Gogue when the time comes. But you can expect him -- and anyone working on the Auburn athletic budget -- to feel the sting all the same."

A good one too. He's really had a great first season with UCLA.
