Dysfunction has reared its ugly head at Auburn once more


May the LSU Tigers see an unfamiliar face once they journey to Jordan-Hare Stadium on Oct. 1, 2022?

Rumors are flying on the plains at the moment with questions in regards to the Auburn Tigers’ present head coach, Bryan Harsin, and if he’ll nonetheless be main the crew out of the tunnel in 2022.

Coach Harsin completed the 2021 season 6-7 with a loss to Houston within the Birmingham Bowl. Since then, Auburn has had 19 gamers enter the switch portal and the Tigers completed with the No. 18 recruiting class within the nation. They signed all of ZERO gamers on nationwide signing day.

If Auburn chooses to maneuver on from Harsin after just one season, will probably be the third totally different Auburn head coach that LSU has confronted up to now three years.

The streak began with Gus Malzahn in 2020. LSU traveled all the way down to the plains on Halloween night time the place the LSU Tigers got here up quick 48-11. Malzahn completed with a 68-35 report as the top coach at Auburn. He was 2-5 in bowl video games with one nationwide championship recreation look. Malzahn was let go earlier than the Citrus Bowl towards Northwestern in 2020.

Final Yr, Auburn traveled into Demise Valley and escaped with a slender victory 24-19. Auburn scored 14 unanswered factors within the fourth quarter to retake the lead from LSU and safe the win. On the time it was seen as a monumental win for Bryan Harsin and with how Auburn throws round contract extensions, I’m stunned he didn’t get a brand new contract on the spot. Particularly contemplating it was the primary time in 20 years Auburn received a recreation at Tiger Stadium.

Every part went downhill after that. Auburn had sufficient ejections throughout video games this season, I suppose they determined they wanted to proceed the pattern off the sphere as effectively. It looks as if the one fixed on the Plains lately is the Jumbotron.

If the administration decides to fireplace Harsin with out trigger he can be owed $18 million resulting from his buyout. That might make it probably the most for any coach this cycle surpassing the $17 million that LSU is paying Ed Orgeron, however at the very least he received one thing of significance.
