Sources: Bryan Harsin is working on hiring away a current SEC offensive coordinator

Sources tell FootballScoop Bryan Harsin is seeking to bring South Carolina offensive coordinator Mike Bobo in for the Auburn offensive coordinator position.

Bobo was retained by new Gamecocks head coach Shane Beamer, and just two days ago had a new 2-year deal worth $1.2 million annually approved by the board of trustees, but sources tell FootballScoop that Auburn is seeking to hire Bobo for the offensive coordinator position on Bryan Harsin's new staff.

Prior to landing the offensive coordinator job at South Carolina, Bobo spent five seasons as the head coach at Colorado State, where he went 28-35 overall.

Bobo is best known for his time at Georgia. A quarterback for the Dawgs himself ('93-'97), Bobo went on to serve as quarterbacks coach from 2001-06 and then offensive coordinator from 2007-14.

After the dismissal of Will Muschamp at South Carolina, Bobo filled in the final three games of the season as the interim head coach.

Thus far Harsin has brought his strength coach (Jeff Pitman) and chief of staff (Brad Larrondo) from Boise.
