AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Auburn’s Bryan Harsin has hired former head coaches as his coordinators, bringing in Mike Bobo to run the offense Derek Mason to lead the defense.

The hiring of Bobo was announced first on Thursday and then Mason was announced as the defensive coordinator later in the day.

Bobo is a former head coach at Colorado State and Mountain West rival of Harsin, who coached at Bowie State before being hired by the Tigers. Mason was the head coach at Vanderbilt before he was fired late in the season.
