Report: Bryan Harsin interviewing at Arkansas State Tuesday

News broke on Tuesday morning that Texas Longhorns co-offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin is expected to interview for the Arkansas State head coaching job. Rivals believes that the interview is happening on Tuesday:

While Harsin taking the Arkansas State job would still seem to be indicative of some issues behind the scenes, it's important to point out that Gus Malzahn wasn't the first Arkansas State head coach in the last several years to move up to a better gig -- Hugh Freeze parlayed his year as a head coach there into the Ole Miss job. Steve Roberts was the longtime head coach there from 2002 until 2010.

Another candidate emerging for that job is former Florida State running backs coach Eddie Gran, who could also be in the mix for a gig at Cincinnati with old friend Tommy Tuberville. Gran is known as an excellent recruiter, but hasn't even been a coordinator at the college level, so he would represent a much more significant risk than Harsin.

As Ketchum mentioned, San Jose State is also a job that Harsin could consider, as the current athletic director for the Spartans was previously the athletic director at Boise State, so he has ties to the current Texas co-offensive coordinator. According to CoachingSearch.com, money may be an issue for San Jose State, which could require Harsin to take a paycut if he wanted the job.
