Report: Auburn preparing to end Jay Jacobs’ tenure as athletics director

There’s been a lot of news surrounding Auburn’s athletic programs lately. And now, the school is reportedly laying the groundwork to make a major change.

According to Kevin Scarbinsky of AL.com, Auburn’s president and board of trustees have preparing to end Jay Jacobs’ tenure as athletics director. Scarbinsky reports that the transition was originally going to take place after football season, but the recent situations regarding the softball and men’s basketball programs are speeding the process up.

The softball program is being reviewed for a Title IX complaint involving former associate head coach Corey Myers, who allegedly had improper relationships with student-athletes.

The men’s basketball program is involved in the ongoing FBI investigation for bribery and conspiracy with recruits.

Jacobs has been the school’s athletics director since 2004.
