The Auburn Tigers have fired Head Coach Bryan Harsin after just 21 games leading the football program. It appears in that time the team has not performed up to the level of expectation that the SEC program has for itself. The school is expected to name a new Atheltic Director in John Cohen and his first job will be to lead the program in a national search for a new Head Coach for the football program. Harsin’s buyout will be $15 million and comes just two years after the team decided to pay the $21.7 million buyout to former Head Coach Gus Malzahn.

In his tenure with the Auburn Tigers, Bryan Harsin led the team to an overall record of 9-12 and an SEC record of 4-9. The SEC has high standards for football and despite having less than two years the program has moved on. In a statement by the school they said the following: “Auburn University has decided to make a change in the leadership of the Auburn University football program. President Roberts made the decision after a thorough review and evaluation of all aspects of the football program. Auburn will begin an immediate search for a coach that will return the Auburn program to a place where it is consistently competing at the highest levels and representing the winning tradition that is Auburn football.”
