Auburn University has moved on from head coach Bryan Harsin, the school announced on Monday morning.

Harsin, 45, led the Tigers to a 9-12 record over his season-and-a-half as the head coach. Auburn went 6-7 in Harsin’s first year, losing five games in a row to finish the season, including a 17-13 loss to Houston in the Birmingham Bowl. The Tigers started 3-1 in 2022, before losing Harsin’s final four games.

Harsin was the subject of a February 2022 investigation into allegations of mistreatment and wrongdoing within the football program. After the investigation, Auburn announced Harsin would remain the football coach for the 2022 season.

The announcement of Harsin’s firing came hours after John Cohen resigned from Mississippi State, where he was the athletic director. According to reports, Cohen will take the same job at Auburn, though there has not been a formal announcement yet.

Auburn has not named an interim head coach.
