AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn has fired coach Gene Chizik.
Auburn announced Sunday that Chizik was dismissed two years after leading the Tigers to their first national title since 1957. The Tigers closed with a 49-0 loss to No. 2 Alabama that was the second-most lopsided Iron Bowl game ever and worst since 1948.
The move came after a 3-9 season without any Southeastern Conference wins. It was the most losses by an Auburn team since an 0-10 season in 1950.
Chizik had three years left on a contract worth $3.5 million annually. The announcement came after a team meeting.
The Tigers were outscored 150-21 in their final three SEC games.
He finished 33-19 and 15-17 in SEC games.
