It sounds like former Auburn football coach Gene Chizik could be back in the coaching game very soon.

According to Bruce Feldman, he interviewed for the Mississippi State job before pulling out of consideration. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Feldman added he “wouldn’t be surprised if Chizik returns to coaching.”

It’ll be interesting to see if Chizik ever gets back into the sport of football. He won a national title at Auburn with Cam Newton.

The Tigers had one of the greatest seasons in the history of college football under Gene Chizik. They absolutely toasted the rest of America that year.

Unfortunately, Chizik was never able to find that level of success ever again, got fired by Auburn and then spent some time at North Carolina.

If he does want to get back into the sport, then he’ll eventually get hired somewhere. Coaches with national titles aren’t just floating around.

If you can find one, you hire them. That’s the way it works. It’ll ultimately be up to Chizik. If he wants a job, he’ll get one.
