The Auburn Tigers have zeroed in on their next head coach.

The Tigers are reportedly set to hire Boise State Broncos head coach Bryan Harsin. The news of Harsin’s hiring by Auburn was first reported by Pete Thamel and then corroborated later by Bruce Feldman.

Harsin, as Feldman tweeted, went 69-19 in his tenure at Boise. This included six division championships in the Mountain West, as well as three Mountain West Conference championships. He earned five 10+ win seasons, including two 12-2 campaigns and one Fiesta Bowl win in his first year in 2014. He went a robust 45-8 against Mountain West opponents and went 27-2 over the last four years and 33-4 since 2016.

Harsin has built up a very strong pedigree in taking over one of the strongest Group of 5 programs in America for the last two decades. He should prove to be a very intriguing hire at Auburn, given the difference in geographical footprint and history. But thus far, Harsin has proven to be a very successful head coach, and his reputation precedes him as such.
