AUBURN, Ala. (AP) Auburn's Bryan Harsin hired former head coaches as his coordinators on Thursday, bringing in Mike Bobo to run the offense and Derek Mason to lead the defense.
The new Tigers coach, previously the coach at Boise State, first announced he had hired his former Mountain West Conference counterpart Bobo. The hiring of Mason, a former Vanderbilt coach, was announced hours later.
Bobo was South Carolina's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach last season after five years as the coach at Colorado State. He also played quarterback for Georgia, where he was offensive coordinator from 2007-14.
