Auburn's Harsin hires Mike Bobo as offensive coordinator

By The Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn's Bryan Harsin has hired former Colorado State head coach Mike Bobo as offensive coordinator.

The new Tigers coach, who was at Boise State, announced the hire of his former Mountain West Conference counterpart on Thursday. Bobo was South Carolina's offensive coordinator and quarterback coach last season after five years at Colorado State. He also played quarterback for Georgia, where he was offensive coordinator from 2007-14.

“I’ve wanted to work with Mike now for quite some time as he complements the many things we want to do with our offense,” Harsin said. “We are going to be very versatile in what we do and Mike’s offensive background speaks for itself.

"I’m really excited to combine forces with Mike as we create the Auburn offense, a high-powered, attacking and physical unit that will come at you in many ways.”

Bobo led Colorado State to bowl games in each of his first three seasons. His 2017 team set the school record for most total yards per game.

Bobo went 28-35 overall and 20-20 in the Mountain West.
