Chizik has no contract after 5 months as coach

By  | 

Auburn, Ala. (AP) - Gene Chizik is working under a letter of
agreement more than five months after he was hired to be Auburn's
head football coach.

Auburn officials say they expect a formal agreement to be
finalized soon.

The university released a copy of Chizik's two-page letter of
agreement Monday in response to open-records requests from the
Press-Register in Mobile and other media outlets.

The agreement states that Cizik will make $1.9 million a year
for five years plus unspecified performance bonuses. Former head
coach Tommy Tuberville was scheduled to make at least $3 million
this year.
