Two Assistant Spots Left To Fill

Bryan Harsin’s inaugural staff is almost complete.

It’s been a slow, deliberate process by Bryan Harsin in building his inaugural coaching staff on the Plains. He was hired on December 22nd, 2020. With Auburn still having a bowl game to play, he elected to hold off making any staff moves until the Tigers got through that miserable game.

So this process really began on January 2nd. Auburn has since officially hired seven assistant coaches with another expected be officially announced soon. That leaves only 2 spots left to fill: Wide Receivers & Outside Linebackers.

I have to believe Auburn is closing in on its final hires. National Signing Day is on February 5th and the Tigers have 13 players to sign so there’s plenty of work to do on the trail. Judging by some of the previous moves we’ll likely all be surprised when those final two names are announced.

As always, I’ll do my best to keep things up to date with the latest news.
