Financial Consequences: The Cam Newton investigation could have serious financial ramifications for Auburn head coach Gene Chizik. Under the terms of his contract, Auburn could suspend his $60,000 monthly payments if there is an NCAA investigation. The $1.45 million in bonuses he’s eligible to receive are “subject to their being no major violations.” If he’s terminated with cause because of violations, he could be forced to repay a $750,000 loan Auburn gave him to buy out his contract.
