    how soon people forget that this guy made Christian Hackenberg look good.

    I think this is a great hire.

    he was never a bad offensive coach. shitty personnel decisions are what killed him in Houston.

    I don’t recall hackenberg looking that great but he’s gonna be coaching the best players so it’ll be hard for him to fail

    It’s amazing how little parity there is without teams being able to spend more than others on personnel (legally).

    Elite leadership goes a long way.

    Is Alabama bringing in 25 five star recruits every year?

    No. It can get better.

    One positive is Saban & ole Billy Buttchin should have some epic sideline screaming matches that should be entertaining to watch

    We tend to have a couple of non-recruiter coaches on our staff at a time. We usually rely on 3 or so heavy hitters which we already have in Charles Huff, Karl Scott, and Jeff Banks

    Our OCs do very little recruiting. Even when we had Kiffin and Sark, you just never hear much about them on the trail.

    All players- every single recruit has won a national championship and most get opportunity in NFL

    To QBs- have a Former NFL head coach as your position coach

    All a recruit needs to hear

    There are a lot of "wow" stats regarding this run, but that's got to be the craziest/most impressive.

    Quit being pedantic. Every recruit who has stayed for at least 3 years has won a title.

    Nevermind how their tenures as NFL HCs went, are there other recent examples of departing NFL head coaches immediately becoming college assistants? Maybe there's some obvious ones I'm not thinking of

    Kiffin went Oakland to HC at UTenn
