The Auburn Tigers have lost 10 of their previous 13 games under head coach Bryan Harsin.
Today, in an official statement released by the school, Auburn decided to part ways with Harsin after just less than two seasons.
In a tweet posted by Russell Steinberg this afternoon, it was also noted that Auburn still owes Harsin nearly $15 million, or roughly 70% of his remaining salary.
"Auburn will owe Harsin around $15 million, or 70% of his remaining salary," Steinberg tweeted Monday.
Harsin coached 21 games for Auburn, compiling a 9-12 overall record and a disappointing 4-9 mark in SEC play.
The Tigers, now 3-5 on the season, will likely need to win three of their next four remaining games to become bowl eligible.
In light of the news, it's worth mentioning that Auburn isn't the only team in college football to pay a hefty buyout after firing their coach this season.
After letting go of Scott Frost in September, the University of Nebraska paid upwards of $16 million for their head coach to walk away.
Auburn will travel to Mississippi State to take on the Bulldogs this Saturday.
