Harsin fits the mold for Red Wolves

Posted: December 13, 2012 at 12:54 a.m.

Bryan Harsin, introduced Wednesday as the new head football coach at Arkansas State, comes to the Red Wolves from Texas, where he spent two years as the co-offensive coordinator. He will be the third coach for Arkansas State in three seasons when the season opens next year. Harsin said he will not be involved in coaching Texas when it faces Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl.

It took less than 10 minutes Tuesday for Bryan Harsin to convince the search committee he was the right choice to replace Gus Malzahn as Arkansas State’s head football coach.
