Auburn has hired Boise State’s Bryan Harsin as its head football coach, luring him away from his alma mater and into the powerful Southeastern Conference.
The 44-year-old Harsin is 69-19 with three Mountain West titles in seven seasons at Boise State. Auburn fired Gus Malzahn earlier this month after eight seasons, a surprising move after a 6-4 season — and one that cost the school more than $21 million to buy out the former coach’s contract.
Harsin had sustained success at one of the top Group of Five programs. He also replaced Malzahn at Arkansas State.
