According to multiple sources around Arkansas State and Texas, Arkansas State will name Texas Offensive Coordinator Bryan Harsin as their head coach.
Here is the tweet from Astatenation:

And here is the tweet from Mike Craven, a Texas insider:
This guy knows his stuff RT @cravenmike: I’m hearing from a pretty solid source that Bryan Harsin will be the head coach at Arkansas State.

Now this makes sense from both sides. For Bryan Harsin, he wants to be a head coach. Not only are you taking over for a program that has won 19 games the last 2 season and the last 2 coaches both got SEC head coaching jobs. For Arkansas State, you get a guy with a proven offensive background that might stay for a few years and coach the Red Wolves to a few more Sun Belt Conference titles.
