Chizik opens up about major life decision

Former Auburn national championship football coach Gene Chizik wrote a column Friday for USA Today in which he expressed his love for Auburn.

He also explained why he has no regrets about walking away from the sport in order to concentrate on being a better father.

In the column, he identified the day he decided to make a change.

“In 2016, as I walked to another two-a-day practice at North Carolina, I watched carloads of families moving into the freshmen dorms,” Chizik wrote. “My family was doing the exact same thing 500 miles away. That’s when it hit me.

“It was time to make a change.”
