MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- When Gene Chizik and his staff were let go at Auburn, ESPN 300 wide receiver Earnest Robinson (Pinson, Ala./Pinson Valley) wanted to reopen his recruitment. The AU commit was close with the former staff, specifically assistant coaches Trooper Taylor and Tommy Thigpen.

“Me and Thigpen and Troop, we’re really close, so it really shocked me and everything,” Robinson said. “I had to think what I’m going to do now because I didn’t know what coaching staff was going to come in. I still had my options open.”
