AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn's athletic department paid a private security company almost $75,000 to enforce curfews for Auburn football players last season.
The Montgomery Advertiser
The paper reports that Event Operations Group billed the athletic department a total of $77,200 for curfew checks that began two days before the first football game and ended just before the Iron Bowl.
The department paid a total of $74,884 after receiving a 3 percent discount for prompt weekly payments.
Former coach Gene Chizik instituted a curfew and used private security workers to enforce it six days a week last season.
Chizik was fired after Auburn finished 3-9 and didn't win a Southeastern Conference game.
