Updating the Auburn coaching search

In college football, Thanksgiving week means essentially three things: rivalry weeks, such as Auburn-Alabama in the ‘Iron Bowl,’ Ohio State-Michigan in ‘The Game,’ Washington-Washington State in the ‘Apple Cup’ and Oregon-Oregon State in the old ‘Civil War;’ it means the onset of the Football Championship Subdivision Playoffs; and it brings coaching searches in many instances to or near their conclusions.

That’s where things stand now at Auburn University, which fired the ill-fated Bryan Harsin midseason and has worked to secure its next head coach in the Tigers’ ongoing, perpetual battle to escape Alabama’s elephant-sized shadow.
