Bryan Harsin Opened Auburn Practice To Fans, Good For Him

Bryan Harsin is looking to turn Auburn into a national title contender, and Tigers fans just might say he is off to a good start.

That’s because Harsin allowed fans to attend the first week of spring practice. Harsin arrived in December after seven years at Boise State.

The crowd for Saturday’s spring practice consisted of a few thousand fans.

“It was a good day today for us,” Harsin told reporters. “Our guys enjoyed it. This was good for us, not just because we had fans out here (and) playing in front of them, providing that environment. Just go back to last spring. There was no practice.”

Harsin has compiled a 76-24 record as a head coach overall. His former teams, Boise State and Arkansas State, went 3-2 in bowl games. The Tigers finished 6-5 last season.

“These guys did a really good job preparing themselves to get after it,” Harsin said of the first week of spring practice. “Some things were good, some things were bad. We will go back and correct it.”
