AUBURN, Ala (EETV) - Head Coach Bryan Harsin continues to bring his colleagues from Boise State to the Plains as Auburn announces Darren Uscher has been named director of recruiting and player personnel for the Tigers. Uscher worked with Harsin at Boise State for the past seven years and was their director of recruiting for the last five. 

“Our recruiting process is one that never stops and having a recruiting director like Darren who keeps the process continually moving and on track is extremely critical to the success of Auburn football," Harsin said. "Darren brings the ability to be in the moment and develop relationships with prospects and their families, manage the recruiting needs of our staff, while also working a step or two ahead as a must for recruiting in today's setting.”

Uscher will oversee all areas of recruiting, player personnel and roster management of Auburn football. He will work closely with the on-campus recruiting department and the Auburn Athletics compliance department. 

“I'm extremely appreciative and grateful for the opportunity that Coach Harsin has given me over the years and especially now at a place like Auburn," Uscher said. "To work at such a special place that's rich in tradition like Auburn is both an honor and a privilege, and one that I don't take lightly.”

Before working at Boise State, Uscher worked at Georgetown where he served as the director of operations, assistant recruiting coordinator and video coordinator. Uscher worked at South Carolina as a marketing assistant prior to working at Georgetown where he created and executed marketing plans for football, baseball, basketball and soccer. 

Uscher attended both South Carolina and Georgetown as a student, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in sport and entertainment management from South Carolina and a master’s in sports industry management from Georgetown.
