Chizik Book Tour Schedule

On the heels of winning the BCS National Championship, Auburn University head football coach Gene Chizik will be signing his new book, All In: What It Takes to Be the Best (Tyndale House Publishers), at nine locations in four different states in early July.

All In, releasing July 5, 2011, chronicles the remarkable journey of Chizik, who in two short years went from the maligned 5–19 coach of the Iowa State Cyclones to the undefeated, AP SEC Coach of the Year of the 2010 National Champions Auburn Tigers. David Thomas, author of Remember Why You Play and senior writer and sports columnist for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, is collaborating on the book. University of Texas head football coach Mack Brown will write the foreword.

All In: What It Takes to Be the Best is filled with never-before-told stories from Chizik's coaching career—from his departure from Iowa State and his heavily criticized appointment at Auburn, to his historic 2010 championship run. Coach Chizik opens up about the pivotal role his faith has played in his life and career and shares his time-tested secrets to success, both on and off the field.
