CHIZIK JOINS THE NET: USA TODAY's Dan Wolken reports former Auburn coach Gene Chizik is "joining the SEC Network as an analyst," and he will make his first studio appearance with the Utah State-Tennessee game on Aug. 31. His "primary role will be as a studio analyst on Mondays and Tuesdays but will contribute to other SEC Network programming." Chizik also co-hosts a college football-themed show on SiriusXM Radio, and he said, "I've really enjoyed the media side of it. It's fun when you can do what you love to do, which is analyze college football, watch games, break them down both before and after and it's just fun for me and it's really been great for me" (USATODAY.com, 8/21).
