Auburn Coach Bryan Harsin Signs a Six-year, $31.5 Million Deal

Auburn University and head football coach Bryan Harsin have agreed on a six-year deal that pays him roughly $5.25M per year. He spent the last six seasons at Boise State, and apparently the Auburn Tigers are putting all their eggs in one basket.

He has a solid 76-24 record as head coach in college football, but he hasn’t exactly proven himself on the big stage. One might call this faith–someone else might call a contract that pays $31.5 million as more of a guarantee. Either way, Bryan Harsin is here for the long haul, unless of course he’s fired. But he’s got some insurance just in case (check this out):

If Harsin is fired without cause, then Auburn must pay 70% of his expected salary of the deal.

The 44-year-old head coach made $1.85 million in 2020 with Boise State, so that’s quite the raise. Auburn went 6-4 last season and expects to be much better next year, based on the faith they’re putting in their new coach. We’ll see how it turns out.
