AMES, Iowa Iowa State University Athletics Director Jamie Pollard acknowledged Friday that Auburn A.D. Jay Jacobs recently contacted him to speak with Gene Chizik regarding the Tigers’ vacant head coaching position.

It is Pollard’s understanding that Chizik has met with Auburn officials and is a serious candidate for the job. Pollard said he wasn’t surprised by Auburn’s interest in his coach.

“Auburn’s interest in Gene speaks to his (Chizik’s) reputation,” Pollard said. “We saw that same potential in Gene two years ago. He is an outstanding football coach, tremendous recruiter and inspiring leader. When your organization has talented staff members, other schools express interest in their services.”

Chizik and Pollard were not available for further comment.
