Did Gene Chizik Coach at Largo High School in Florida?

by H.A. Shaffer Sr.

In the 50s at Largo high school Fl. we had a coach named Gene Chizik would the coach at Auburn be any kin? They look very much alike.

Thank You

Answer: Well, you are onto something. Apparently that was his dad. Gene Jr. also coached the team later. But, in the 50's it would have been his dad who was also a war hero and principal of the school.

Here's an article about it:

Gene Chizik Sr. actually became the Principal at Largo High School from 1968 - 1986. He passed away sometime in 2002. So he never got a chance to see his son coach the national championship team.

There's actually a picture in one of the yearbooks showing him playing catch with Gene his son.
