The former Auburn football coach will join SiriusXM Radio, serving in an analyst role on its college sports channel. The announcement came in a press release on Thursday. Chizik will host multiple shows each week on the SiriusXM College Sports Nation, which is channel 91 on the satellite network. He will make his debut next week, getting on the air for the first time on July 23 alongside host Mark Packer on “College Sports Today.” The show airs from 3-6 p.m. ET.

“SiriusXM College Sports Nation is a tremendous source of information for college football fans and I’m excited to be a part of it,” Chizik said in a statement. “We’ve got a lot to talk about with the season approaching, from the standout teams and players to watch to realignment and the college football playoffs.”

Chizik was fired as the Tigers’ head coach last November after posting a 3-9 record in his final season. He went 33-19 overall in four seasons at Auburn and won the BCS National Championship with the Tigers in 2010.
