- Jay Jacobs, Athletic Director at Auburn University
- United States of America
The football program at Auburn University is in need of a fresh start and new energy. In two short years Auburn has gone from the number 1 team in the country to the very bottom of the bottom. Our great reputation has been damaged by controversy and now is the time for a fresh start.
We do not need to be hiring other coaches who come with their own controversy or who have all failed to put together a winning team in their coaching careers. Let's get someone with the skills to coach and the energy and desire to win.
Justin Wilcox has been a huge success as a defensive coordinator and assistant coach. In just one season at the University of Washington he took his team from 116th in the nation in pass defense to 9th. Since his career began, every team he has worked with has made record improvement in defense.
Football is in his blood, his dad is Pro Football Hall of Famer, Dave Wilcox of the SF 49er's. He is ready to take the lead on a big program and Auburn is in need of a winning defense that Justin Wilcox can provide.
We can hire a new head coach who has HUGE success as an assistant, but who has never had the job as head coach. No record of failure and no controversy, together Auburn University and Justin Wilcox can create a winning football program for many years to come.
He's a young 35 years old and has the skills and energy to make Auburn University number 1 again.
We, the undersigned Auburn University football fans, call on the Athletic Director, Jay Jacobs, to hire Justin Wilcox as our next head coach.
As members of the Auburn Family, we don't want damaged goods or failed coaches. We need the skills of Justin Wilcox to put us back on top and make us once again a program that instills envy and commands respect.
Justin Wilcox is ready to coach a Nation Championship team and Auburn is ready to be that team. Hire Justin Wilcox as the next head coach at Auburn University.
