    "Quite a few of you guys have been talking about Charlie Strong popping up in Tuscaloosa. While we have not confirmed it's a done deal, we expect Strong to join the Alabama football staff in an off-the-field role"

    lol, suck it Gators.

    Genuinely curious why you seem so against even bringing him on as a position coach? If anything It will be nice to have him help Golding figure some things out.

    I could see if there were some suggestions of guys who’d they’d rather but you have to imagine that Strong is gonna be a hot name on the DC circuit soon enough

    Recruit elite athletes then coach them up as one of the more respected Defensive guys out there. We can’t get Golding to land a single guy and his coaching is about as impressive as the beer selection in the Naturday thread

    I could easily see him as an analyst now and then possibly moved to co-DC if someone else on the field leaves during the off season. Lets Strong get the title without demoting Golding and it wouldn't be the first time Saban has taken the co-DC route.

    I don’t think he’s shown any ability whatsoever to adapt to the ever changing dynamic of modern offenses in college football. He more or less looked clueless at USF once Taggart’s recruits were gone and I don’t think at this point in time he carries enough weight on the trail to make up for that. I’m all for getting rid of Pete, but I’m not sure a 60 year old bordering on has-been status is the proper replacement.

    Implicit in Owsley ’s trashing of Strong is that he loves Pete Golding

    Golding is def a problem. But being too high brow to even consider strong is laughable

    Thank goodness a great recruiter and by all accounts a very good defensive mind is “only” an analyst :loldog:

    Gump would be an upgrade over Golding. Most of the high school coaches at big schools would be too

    I mean yall do know that Strongs teams at Texas and South Florida were pretty horrendous on defense right? His Texas teams couldnt handle that air raid big 12 stuff to save their lives which is the trending offense in the SEC.

    I want Golding gone but I feel like we could do much better and find some more up to date young DCs out there. I'm all for getting Strong at LB coach and maybe let Sunseri move into an administrative role
