Multiple sources are reporting that pressure is mounting for Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin as offseason issues continue in the Plains. Per AuburnWire:
quote:

According to Justin Hokanson of On3, his immediate future is in serious jeopardy. This coming off the heels of firing Gus Malzahn and Harsin’s 6-7 campaign in year one.

The timing for this situation couldn’t come at a worse time. The coaching carousel during and after the 2021 season was one we hadn’t seen in some time. With the constant turnover of key coordinators and more speculation running rampant on social media channels and message boards, this news is less than surprising, to say the least.
Harsin went 6-7 in his first year as head coach and lost quarterback Bo Nix to the transfer portal this offseason, along with other players. Defensive coordinator Derek Mason recently left for the Oklahoma State job, while newly hired offensive coordinator Austin Davis resigned from his position after one month.

It will take Auburn a half decade to recover...and that's IF they make a good next hire.

I have no idea if the rumors are true or not and do not care...I do not care that much about the horrific ending to last season and how it happened. What I DO CARE ABOUT IS AUBURN...and a little advice for Coach Harsin, albeit a day late and a dollar short is this...MAKE FRIENDS NOT ENEMIES...or at the least MAKE AN EFFORT TO MAKE CONNECTIONS WITH THE AUBURN FAMILY... with the AU students, the AU donors, boosters...DO NOT make the AU athletic Complex seem like it is Stalingrad during WWII...under seize...no one on the inside is getting out and no one on the outside is getting in...I recall, Stalingrad was never taken by the Germans, Stalin was "victorious" and broke the seize of the city that bore his name...YET, it was nothing left but rubble, debris, and corpses... Are rumors planted by rival programs and even media to crate false narratives...absolutely...so that is why, Coach Harsin, you would be in better shape today if you would have MADE AN EFFORT TO CONNECT WITH THE AUBURN FAMILY, the AU students, Donors, boosters and even local beat reporters...all which you have alienated from AU Football since you arrived... you turned a welcoming, warm place into a cold, hollow entity the had the aurora of being under seize...Why didn't you contact all the local and state sports media people and set a time to meet with them, off the record to clear the air...any question fair game...just you and them??? You did not do that, you ran to ESPN...probably the worse platform you could have run to for AU people...if you do not know why then similar to what I thought during your intro pres conference...you haven't a clue... You made a comment that you were hired to coach so let coaches coach...I disagree with you and that is where you are missing the boat in a big way...YOU WERE HIRED AS AUBURN'S HEAD FOOTBALL COACH, THE FACE OF THE UNIVERSITY, AND INSTANTLY BECAME ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL MEN IN OUR STATE...Every HC in the SEC is expected to do a lot more than coach football...and Coach Harsin, you have failed miserably at making connections with any part of AU...you throwing AU admin under the bus about the OC situation will not serve you any purpose beyond add fuel to the fire...Sometimes it's best to keep your mouth shut, take the blame and move on...you have made a point from day 1 to alienate AU Football and to isolate yourself... NO SEC COACH CAN SURVIVE DOING THAT because you are being paid millions to do a lot more than just coach. You had your one opportunity to endear yourself to the Auburn Family and you gave us the middle finger...and now, outside forces are building against you plead your case nationally through ESPN will not work with us...ESPN will likely do what they can to control this narrative, dictate this narrative to place AU in a negative light, and place you in a positive light... There is nothing positive about not signing a single player during the February Signing period although at least 2 had provided silent verbal commitments to you as recently as 2 weeks ago...You hired a 30yr old coach with zero experience Coaching at the college level, had never been a coordinator at any level including junior high school yet you hire him anyway...do you think it was a coincidence that he decided to wait until 2 days before signing day to announce he would not honor his commitment to be AU's next OC...Having the verbal commitments back out and now having rumors that are aligned with Petrino if not more spewed across social media....if not true then have you not asked yourself why??? Have you not figured out you will have people targeting you paying kids and families to lie and manipulate and often it is not any AU faction trying to set you up but are our rivals... you really did not do yourself any favors by going to ESPN as I said...you haven't done yourself any favors by not going to local beat writers....you haven't done yourself any favors by running off more than half of Coach Malzhans last recruiting class which was his worst one yet was still higher than any you have had...it was ranked #11 in the nation...half of those players have transferred...Coaches and analysts leaving in droves...not leaving for championship-caliber programs but leaving for schools like UCF, Indiana, OKLAHOMA...STATE, and even FCS schools...Unprecedented in unprecedented times I get that but...initially, people dismissed the transfers and departures stating that the kid was buried on the depth chart...some were said to not be willing to put the work in...however when 1/3 of the team leaves along with coaches and you get left at the alter holding your junk...well, it's obvious it is not everyone else...perhaps invest in a mirror to look deep into and analyze what is being reflected back at you...Because you had an opportunity, the Auburn family welcomed you in, made you part of us and you rejected every one of us then locked us out after that...I doubt you would be facing this turmoil is you didn't think so highly of yourself and so little of others...but understand this, AU will be a championship program again with or without you...we always are...you need AU much more than AU needs you...don't ever forget that...
