I'm interested in JJ's comment that this is a "real, working committee" which implies to me that the previous one wasn't. I'm also interested in his statement about Crawford being a "turnaround" expert and that we need a little turnaround. Sounds like Crawford will be involved in a little more than hiring a new coach. Who knows - he may be a serious candidate to be the next AD. If he's involved this early, it would certainly guarantee and easier transition process when JJ "retires".
From Goldberg's article on al.com
[The coaching search committee is Jacobs, Bo Jackson, Pat Sullivan and Mac Crawford.
"This is a real, working committee and I’m proud to be part of this distinguished group," Jacobs said.
The Auburn faithful know Jacobs, Jackson and Sullivan. Who's Mac Crawford? A former fullback who former chairman of the board of CVS/Caremark and Caremark RX, Inc. Now, he's a private equity investor.
"He is a CEO turnaround expert," Jacobs said. "We probably need a little turnaround here. He is very objective. He’s not an emotional guy. He’s every business oriented, with business sense and business savvy. He’s well respected by the Auburn football community. It’s really a blessing to have Mac a part of this. We all know Bo and Pat. Certainly, having Pat, who is a current head coach, is awful helpful when you are sitting with potential head coaches. Certainly, Bo brings something to the table, and Mac as well."]

"you're so vain, I'll bet you think this post is about you, don't you? Don't you?"
This whole "committee" is just CYA for Jacobs. He is an embarrassment.
