Bryan Harsin deflects question about Auburn QBs, recalls hiring Eli Drinkwitz at Arkansas State
Bryan Harsin deflected a question about Auburn’s quarterbacks, and TJ Finley’s availability during his appearance on the SEC coaches media teleconference on Wednesday.
This game one day after multiple reports suggested that Finley would be unavailable for this week’s game against Auburn because of a shoulder injury.
“All those guys have been at practice. Our guys are always at practice,” Harsin said.
Harsin will have a reunion of sorts with Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz, and they have a history as Harsin hired Drinkwitz when he took over at Arkansas State.
“That was my first head job at Arkansas State,” Harsin said. “Eli was on the staff with Gus and Gus had left. … I got a chance to get to know that staff well. Once I did my press conference, I went into my staff room. … Talked to him for 3-5 minutes. … Eli came to my office and introduced himself and said he wanted to be there.”
