He has had balanced offenses, with multiple 3,000 yd seasons. His reputation made him a top choice for the two of the top three teams in the country. Every QB he's coached has improved. I think I would say yes. Diaz has also coached against him a few times I think. Not always a reliable indicator, as Shannon/Nix proved, but I think in this case, Saban and Smart wanting to hire him is a good sign.If he wasn’t tied to Bama would those who like the hire still like it?
Can’t be for bigger $. We broke the bank to beat out Bama & UGA for him. You think UGA wanted James Coley over Enos? lolz
Well, then I'll just continue being the ignorant one then, since you clearly must know "people who have worked with the individual"
Its all "guess work" sparky....its a message board for opinions.
I wanted a bigger name for bigger money.....that's all. Same for OL coach. Same for S&C coach.
Rooting for the guy like hell...I hope this will be his best coaching stop ever, because to this point...Alabama for one year is his clear highlight, surrounded by 4-5 star purchased talent EVERYWHERE, including his position.
Few issues with that point. First off, Georgia’s offense and Alabama’s offense were very, very different this year. Georgia’s looked much more like Bama of years past with a lot of running, short passes and the occasional deep shot. Alabama was much more downfield.I hope you're right. But I'm not enamored with this, and I don't think kids will be excited to play in the offense.
And even if they were, why wouldn't they just go to Georgia or Bama to do so? The key about hiring someone with spread concepts is that it would allow us to sell something most SEC teams (who are the schools stealing the South Florida talent) aren't equipped to sell. Instead, we get Georgia- or Bama-lite. It's just frustrating.
