Committee completes review of Auburn Athletics program

Posted: Updated:

A six-person committee has completed a review of Auburn's athletic department.

Committee member Mac Crawford said Monday the review found that the department is "in good shape" overall. He says the committee feels athletic director Jay Jacobs can make the needed improvements.

Auburn President Jay Gogue says the review focused on academic and support services for student-athletes, financial management, customer service, competition and management structure.

Gogue says he and Jacobs have spoken at length about the committee's findings. He says they focus on steps to improve overall operations, better interact with fans and alumni and "enhance the game day experience."

Gogue and Crawford did not mention specific potential changes or findings. Jacobs is scheduled to address the Auburn Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday with an update on the athletics department.
