College football fans react as Auburn fires coach Bryan Harsin

We saw the first coaching change in the SEC this season on Monday as Auburn made the unsurprising decision to fire second-year coach Bryan Harsin following a 41-27 home loss against the Arkansas Razorbacks.

This is a move that was expected by the end of the season, and some thought Harsin could be let go ahead of the Tigers’ bye week after they lost to Ole Miss two weeks ago. This news comes on the wake of reports that Auburn has hired Mississippi State athletic director John Cohen to the same position.

In less than two full seasons on the job, Harsin finished 9-12 with a 4-9 record in the SEC. Harsin is 1-9 in his last 10 games against Power Five teams with the lone win coming against Missouri thanks to a fumble at the goal line that bailed AU out, and he sits at 3-5 (1-4 SEC) this season.

Harsin certainly didn’t garner a lot of sympathy with his abrasive tone in press conferences this season after he narrowly survived a booster-led coup attempt in the spring. With Harsin’s short-lived tenure now at an end, it was a day of rejoicing for Auburn fans and others in college football that have a bone to pick with Harsin.
