Auburn Athletic Director Jay Jacobs To Step Down By June 2018

Auburn Athletic Director Jay Jacobs To Step Down By June 2018”

Jacobs also acknowledged the growing amount of controversies associated with Auburn athletics.

Auburn athletics director Jay Jacobs announced in a release Friday that he will step down from his position with the university.

"The last several months have been a particularly hard time", he said in a column penned to Auburn fans on Friday afternoon, via 247 Sports. "Across several sports, a series of controversies have arisen", he said. He also was a key figure in negotiating the school's nine-year extension with Under Armour, was the men's basketball sport administrator and helped support the administrative staff of the football program. "Janet and I wish Jay and Angie the very best, and we look forward to his continued service to Auburn as Athletics Director Emeritus". But as I consider the future and what is best for Auburn, I have prayerfully decided the time has come for me to step aside. "Sometimes a new direction and new leadership are helpful in moving beyond current problems".

In his short time in Storrs, Benedict brought back football coach Randy Edsall, who in turn hired Rhett Lashlee as offensive coordinator and former Auburn assistant J.B. Grimes as offensive line coach.

In October, a former track and field coach alleged he was discriminated against in a suit and said he was assaulted by a fellow assistant coach.

After news broke of his impending retirement, Jacobs released a heart-felt letter to the Auburn community that details his earliest memories as an Auburn fan all the way through the highest highs of his tenure as athletic director. He led the coaching search to hire Gus Malzahn after the team fired title-winning coach Gene Chizik.
