Arkansas State has found its replacement for Gus Malzahn. Their former head coach departed the school to become the Auburn Tigers’ head football coach.

The Red Wolves have hired the former Texas Longhorns offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin as its new head coach. Harsin was the Texas offensive coordinator for two seasons after spending the past 10 years on the Boise State coaching staff.

“We are extremely excited to name Bryan Harsin as our new head football coach,” said Red Wolves athletics director Terry Mohajir. “Coach Harsin has a proven track record of success, helping produce one of the best football brands in the country and also working with one of the top programs of all time. He has strong experience developing quarterbacks, which was important to me, and always puts his players first.”

Harsin takes over a Red Wolves team that went 9-3 this season. Malzahn guided the team to the Sun Belt Conference championship before leaving.
