Ledger-Enquirer: Chizik Contacted by NC State
Richardson said Auburn defensive coordinator Gene Chizik has been approached by North Carolina State about its defensive coordinator opening.
Chizik, who is a finalist for the Broyles Award handed out to college football's top assistant, would be an outstanding hire by the Wolfpack.
In his third year as defensive coordinator, Chizik has led an Auburn defense that is first nationally in scoring defense, fifth in total defense and in the top 10 in both rushing and passing defense. Auburn is the only school in the country to be in the top 10 nationally in the four major defensive categories.
Pack Pride will have more on the situation as it develops.
