Jacobs: Auburn review finds no evidence of fraud

(Continued)

The Tigers finished last in the SEC in both football and men's basketball.

Auburn fired Chizik after the team went 3-9 and didn't win a Southeastern Conference game in an unprecedented fall two years after winning a national title. It was the Tigers' worst season in 60 years.

Men's basketball coach Tony Barbee is returning after the Tigers went 9-23 and 3-15 in SEC play. They lost 16 of their last 17 games and set a program-high for losses.

Gogue's committee includes former Mississippi athletic director Pete Boone, former California-Berkeley AD Dave Maggard, ex-LSU administrator Judy Southard and businessmen Mac Crawford and John Irwin, along with former Auburn player Quentin Riggins.

University spokesman Brian Keeter said outside experts sometimes help with reviews of academic departments and called this move "the responsible thing to do."
