Gene Chizik Could Be in a World of Hurt

If all of the allegations against superstar quarterback Cam Newton are found to be true the real stooge could be Gene Chizik. Auburn can cease Chizik’s $60k monthly payments if there is an NCAA investigation under the terms of his contract with the University. Secondly, Chizik could lose $1.45 million in allocated bonuses because they are “subject to their being no major violations” for the football program. Finally, if he is fired from Auburn with cause due to violations he could be ordered to pay back $750k that Auburn loaned him to pay off his buy-out clause with Iowa State. Auburn can ultimately come back from violations and Newton will be just fine (see Reggie Bush), but could Chizik handle such a setback?
