It’s been a terrible year at Auburn for head coach Gene Chizik. But what he’s dealing with today probably puts the rest of his woes/issues in perspective.
Auburn University has confirmed that Rita Chizik — the 86-year-old mother of the coach — passed away this morning:
“The Chiziks appreciate the prayers and support that have been sent from the Auburn family. We ask that everyone respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
Our condolences go out to Chizik and his family today. Sad story.
