Charles Barkley is pushing hard for Auburn to look beyond former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino’s baggage and hire the coach to replace the recently fired Gene Chizik...
NBC 38's Christina Chambers spoke with Sir Charles Barkley Tuesday. He’s pushing hard for Petrino. Barkley was against the hiring of Chizik from the beginning throwing his weight behind Turner Gill to be the next head coach, but says this time, Auburn needs to get it right, and it starts with Petrino.
“I understand he has some baggage but he’s a hell of a coach, and we shouldn’t try to play judge and jury and moral judge. He made a mistake, he admitted to his mistake, we have to hire a guy who we know can win, and that’s him,” said Charles Barkley over the phone. “It’s unfortunate about what happened to Chizik, but it’s time for Auburn to move on,” he said.
