Auburn’s Bryan Harsin Not “Seriously Into The Mix Right Now”, Report Says

Auburn Bryan Harsin is eligible for the bowl at 6-5 overall. Recent speculation has surfaced that Harsin may be in contention for another job following the vacant Washington Huskies position. However, Harsin is not “seriously in the mix”, according to a report released Monday by John Talty of

Harsin was recently listed on the Washington Coaching Hot Board 2.0, via Dawgman. Links to the former Huskies head coach Chris peterson was one of the reasons Harsin could be in the running.

However, according to Talty’s latest report, Harsin doesn’t appear to be in contention at the moment.

“I know there have been reports linking it to the opening of Washington, but I have heard from several people that Auburn HC Bryan Harsin is not seriously in the mix for this job at the moment ”, Talty tweeted.

Harsin was Boise State’s head coach from 2014 to 2020 after Peterson left for the Washington position after the 2013 season. Peterson was at Boise State from 2001 to 2013 as offensive coordinator (2001-05) and coach -chief (2006-13).

Harsin was a graduate assistant under Peterson in 2001, tight ends coach from 2002 to 2005, and offensive coordinator from 2006 to 2010 before returning in 2014 as head coach.

Washington sacks head coach Jimmy Lake November 14. Leaving the lake, which sparked a strong national media response, came after he was originally suspended for Washington’s Nov. 13 loss to Arizona State for his actions in the Huskies’ Nov. 6 home loss to Oregon.

Lake hit a Washington player, linebacker Ruperake fuavai, on the sidelines in the first quarter of the loss to the Ducks. Lake’s $ 9.9 million buyout is due monthly for the next three years, but reduced by any further compensation, according to Christian Caple.

Harsin, meanwhile, must reassemble his team for the Iron Bowl against Alabama following the recent skid.

After the 21-17 loss to South Carolina, Harsin spoke about how disappointed he was that his team were left empty and lost their third straight game.

“Well, disappointed with the outcome of the game, and certainly the end of it. ” Harsin said. “So we had our opportunities as the match continued to not be in that position, with still, hopefully, a chance at the end of the match to be able to score, to set up a training that can earn it. We did not have this opportunity. Then it’s about the little things in the game and not putting ourselves in that position. We have done some things. I thought we were playing hard. In any game, it comes down to execution. It’s about putting our guys in the best position to be successful, and we didn’t do it enough tonight to win the game.

“We have to go back, and we have to look at the things that we can do better and really focus on the things that have happened this season in our training, in our preparation, certainly from this game and doing, again once, an emphasis that we have to find a way to make it show up in games and play four quarters. That was the mindset leading up to this game: it would be a fourth quarter game on the road against a good team, and we just didn’t have enough opportunities there at the end to complete all four of the football the way we wanted. “
