Auburn football: Bryan Harsin future unclear amid upheaval

His program rocked by upheaval, Auburn football coach Bryan Harsin faces an uncertain future as his players publicly debate his leadership and the school president offers a noncommittal comment in response to rampant speculation.

“There have been a lot of rumors and speculation about our football program,” outgoing president Jay Gogue said during an Auburn Board of Trustees meeting Friday, according to AL.com. “I just want you to know we’re involved in trying to separate fact from fiction. We’ll keep you posted and make the appropriate decision at the right time.”

Harsin has been at Auburn for only one season, going 6–7, the Tigers’ first losing season since 2012. Auburn started the year 6–2 before flailing in the final month of the regular season and losing its bowl game against Houston. The Tigers were on the verge of a signature upset victory over Alabama in the Iron Bowl but surrendered a 98-yard drive for the tying touchdown in the final seconds, then lost in quadruple overtime.
