Auburn's Bryan Harsin officially signs six-year deal with annual average of $5.25 million
quote:

New Auburn football coach Bryan Harsin has signed a six-year contract with the school that will pay him an average of $5.25 million, according to documents released Monday.

Harsin, who came to Auburn from Boise State in December, is signed through Dec. 31, 2026. His salary begins at $5 million and increases by $100,000 on Jan. 1 of each year of the contract. Harsin's bonus structure includes $100,000 for winning the SEC West Division and $250,000 for winning an SEC championship.

He will earn $200,000 for every New Year's Six bowl appearance; $300,000 for reaching the College Football Playoff; $400,000 for reaching the national title game and $800,000 for winning a national championship.

If Auburn fires Harsin without cause, it will owe the coach 70% of his remaining salary through the contract term, half of which will be paid within 30 days of termination. The remaining 50% would be paid out over four years, and Harsin's guarantee is not subject to offset or mitigation. Auburn had a similarly structured agreement with Harsin's predecessor, Gus Malzahn, who was fired in December. Malzahn was owed more than $21 million on his contract, and he received half of the amount within 30 days. UCF last month hired Malzahn as its coach. Malzahn earned $6,927,589 at Auburn in 2020.

If Harsin leaves Auburn before the end of the contract, he would owe the school $7 million in the first year, $5 million in the second year and $3 million in the third year. His buyout then drops by $1 million apiece in the fourth and fifth years of the agreement.

Harsin, 44, earned $1.85 million at Boise State in 2020. He comes to Auburn with a 76-24 record in eight seasons as a head coach.

Weird to think this dude is making $1.25+ Million per year more than Saban’s first contract at Bama.

Most all the coaches in the SEC are making near or above what Nick was making when he got the keys from Mal. Those coaches can thank Nick for their high dollar salary as well.

No doubt. I remember College GameDay signs from that first year calling out how much we had "overpaid" him, especially after dropping a few games late in the season.

Don't blame us. Saban has been the most underpaid coach in America throughout his entire tenure here.

I am all for these coaches getting as much money as they can. Some keep falling forward after failure.

Ten Bears tells me they all better enjoy because that trend has a shelf life of 6-8 more years before a real correction takes place. The South will be the last section to correct.

Like I said, that’s an increase of 25% in total compensation. Over a 14 year period.

What kind of change in your income have you experienced since 2007?

Ackshually

The rise in salaries from 2007 to now is nothing compared to the rise from the mid-90s to 2007, at least on a percentage basis.
