This will probably help Gene Chizik

This week in "Oh I'm so surprised, Auburn":
According to multiple sources, NCAA investigators have spent weeks looking into potential improprieties involving Auburn recruits, players, coaches, representatives of the school's athletic interests and third parties.

Assistant coaches Trooper Taylor and Curtis Luper have been scrutinized by the NCAA, sources said. Taylor is the assistant head coach and wide receivers coach, while Luper coaches running backs and is the recruiting coordinator. Both Taylor and Luper were taken off the road recruiting several weeks ago amid the NCAA probe, sources said. 
Level of surprise on a scale of 1-10 that Auburn and/or Trooper Taylor are involved in recruiting shenanigans: -7,883. And to answer the obvious question:
Sources told Yahoo! Sports in September that the NCAA has been investigating the recruitment of 2012 Auburn signee Jovon Robinson, whose Memphis Wooddale High School academic transcript was found to be forged and was subsequently declared ineligible in August to play this year at the school. The NCAA probe is believed to be more widespread than just Robinson but is not believed to revisit the 2010 allegations involving former star quarterback Cam Newton.
I see. Insert "so you're sayin' there's a chance" gif here.

And to answer the other obvious question: three. Gene Chizik has three days left at Auburn.
