Carver's Johnson would de-commit if Chizik's fired

By

G.W. Carver senior quarterback Jeremy Johnson let his future plans be known loud and clear.

Friday afternoon, Johnson sent shockwaves to fans and alumni on the Plains when he tweeted that he would de-commit from Auburn if head coach Gene Chizik would be relieved of his duties. AL.com first reported Johnson’s tweet.

“I’m committed to auburn and coach chiz if he get fired then I’m gone he has no reason to get fired he not out there playing,” Johnson wrote on his personal Twitter account (@MRSUPER6A).

The 6-foot-5 standout didn’t shy away from those same comments following G.W. Carver’s 16-13 victory over Stanhope Elmore in the first round of the AHSAA Class 6A playoffs at Cramton Bowl later that night.

“I am just going to make the right choice for me,” Johnson said. “It’s not about satisfying fans or anybody else; it’s about the best choice for me. So, if they fire coach Chizik I am going to open up.”

Auburn (2-7) is currently enduring one of the program’s worse seasons. Rumors have been whirling for some time now as to whether Chizik, who led the Tigers to the BCS title two years ago, would eventually be fired following the conclusion of the season.

The Carver quarterback said he take a hard look at Ole Miss or LSU if he de-commits.
