Auburn University is reportedly expected to retain Bryan Harsin as its head football coach despite an investigation into his handling of the program.

According to ESPN's Pete Thamel and Chris Low, Auburn is planning to make an official announcement regarding Harsin remaining with the team Friday.

Per Thamel, the investigation into Harsin was launched after 20 players and five coaches left the program following Harsin's first season as head coach of the Tigers in 2021.
