Paul Finebaum doesn’t expect Auburn football to keep head coach Bryan Harsin around much longer with games against Georgia and Ole Miss looming.
When will Auburn fire Bryan Harsin? Paul Finebaum has a guess.

“If the end was near last week, the end is nearer this week,” Finebaum said. “I really have to anticipate it’s either at the end of this week or the next.”
Finebaum was sure to say he doesn’t have any insider information regarding the timing of the firing. He’s going by a gut feeling based on the feeling around Auburn right now, which is pretty dire.
Paul Finebaum doesn’t think Bryan Harsin will survive the next two weeks
The Tigers are 3-2 and just blew a 17-0 lead over LSU. They barely beat San Jose State. They got blown out at home by Penn State. They barely beat Missouri. The fact that Missouri almost beat Georgia is probably Auburn’s biggest win of the season so far.
Of course, that’s just going to make it worse if Georgia beats the pants off of Auburn this week when they play.
The Bulldogs have struggled over the past two weeks. They just lost the No. 1 ranking to Alabama because of it. You can bet they will be looking to take out their frustrations on Auburn on Saturday. it could get ugly
Losing to Georgia may not be the death knell for Harsin but another road game against a highly ranked opponent could certainly do the trick. They get Ole Miss after the Bulldogs.
Realistically, Harsin is on borrowed time. He’d need a miracle to pull off wins in the next two weeks. If he doesn’t win and manages to hold onto his job, teams like Arkansas, Mississippi State and Texas A&M are capable of pushing things over the edge even before Auburn finishes the season at Alabama.
