Jay Gogue was busy. Seriously. There was a previously scheduled meeting in Montgomery about education spending, and he couldn’t get back in time.
It had to have been some meeting for the Auburn president to miss Gene Chizik’s introduction as the Auburn football coach here Monday.
No matter how many good things he does for the school, the success of Gogue’s tenure now will be judged in large part on the success of the head coach chosen on his watch.
