    This is what the world is coming to. Rocker loses his job because some prima-dona player's prima-dona mom. UGA had the #3 ranked recruiting class in the country. Who cares if you missed out on a bad attitude player?

    the combo of CNS being a tough guy to work for and the rest of the world wanting CNS disciples makes this an annual occurrence. Couldn't care less about Sark other than giving him the OC gig probably played a part in both Cristobal and Napier leaving for OC roles out west. Not sure why CNS thought he was inheriting some subservient anti-Kiffin in Sarkisian but he screwed that one up. Really no impact whatsoever in the long run and now we have a couple months before Spring practices to get the right guy that wants to be here and will adhere to "the process".

    Wow, only 2 of 9 remaining from 2015. Saban does a great job though of hiring. The Locksley hire is a perfect example; he's a former D1 HC plus he was already on staff as an analyst, so there's no real "break-in" period. Also, it's a lot easier to coach 4 and 5 star talent then going to a ham and egg program w/ 2 and 3 star kids, so whoever he hires he'll be just fine.

    In 2013 Jimbo Fisher hired 6 new coaches in the off-season and won the national title...and did it w/ a redshirt freshman QB.

    There's been a lot of movement in the SEC this season. The DL coach that just took the Ole Miss job...just left for the UGA job. Amazing.

    IMO, the best hire this offseason was Canada going from Pitt to LSU as OC. I'm real interested to see what he does w/ that offense. Also surprising that Ed O fired Craig.

    agree about Canada to LSU ... great hire as long as that bumbling fool, Eddie O, let's Canada take control of that side of the ball. Loved watching him spread east/west at Pitt then hammer the ball up the middle. To drop 40+/game with Nathan Peterman as your starting QB and zero talent at WR was a monumental achievement.

    Bama OC interview list is Locksley, Godsey (I don't get this one), Martin (ugh), Helfrich

    first and foremost CNS wants a qb coach so can't figure out how Godsey gets an interview after the magic he worked with the Texans QB's ...

    Agree on Godsey. Makes no sense. Other than having the NFL background (I guess that helps w/ recruiting) I don't get it. Saban clearly wants to have more of a "college" style offense and has a DT type of QB...who will only be a sophomore. Hiring Godsey would be similar to going back to what McElwain and Nussmeir ran at Alabama.

    The real deal is he has missed on 2 big targets the last 2 years. Kirby is a recruiting machine and wants all his coaches to do the same. As good as Rocker was at coaching, he struggled recruiting. That doesnt mesh with how Kirby wants to run his program

    yeah but i think what CB was getting at is that it's a little concerning that the dog should be wagging the tail. This kid's mom is a fn joke. She wrote a 31-question survey for all of his suitors that included questions like "Will my son be able to choose his own major?" and "what time are football practices?" and "how does Aubrey choose his courses?" ... seriously, this is a bizarre individual to be dealing with.


    so to blame Rocker in getting into an argument with an obviously insane parent is a little harsh. Not to mention he is/was the lead recruiter on at least 3 of their biggest 2018 in-state recruits...

    normally i would agree that you can't be losing 5-stars because of arguing with a parent but in this case it might be for the best. As i mentioned on previous page Solomon was 1 of 2 5-stars that were thought of as the biggest potential busts. Some scouts believed they were #1 or #2 at their position but quite a few didn't have them in their top 50 at the position. But, we'll see ... he was the least of my concerns as far as Bama missing out on a big-time recruit. Parks wasn't far behind...i think he's a major project

    New Orleans area coaches considering boycott against LSU


    NEW ORLEANS ó Is LSU close to losing one of its most fertile recruiting grounds within the state?

    That might be what ultimately occurs on Thursday evening when several of the New Orleans Metro area high school football coaches gather to discuss a potential boycott of the LSU Tigers football program.

    Several of the areaís black head football coaches are meeting to discuss how coach Ed Orgeron handled the demotion of running backs coach and New Orleans area recruiter Jabbar Juluke in the aftermath of National Signing Day.

    Juluke, who was responsible for landing 3-star wide receiver Racey McMath and securing the commitments of 4-star quarterback Lowell Narcisse, 3-star tailback Clyde Edwards-Helaire and 3-star athlete Jontre Kirklin, was reassigned within the football program on Feb. 2, the day after signing day.

    Juluke is the former head coach at Edna Karr (La.) High School, where he coached the team to an undefeated state championship in 2012, the second in the programís history. He continued to recruit New Orleans after accepting a position on Louisiana Techís coaching staff and then for LSU over the past year.Area high school football coaches are unhappy with the way Orgeron handled the process, indicating that LSUís first-year head coach took advantage of Juluke through the final weeks of the recruiting cycle to sign the prospects to letters of intent, then dismiss him, sources told SEC Country.

    Julukeís questionable departure remains one of several marquee issues that the coaches plan to discuss at the meeting.

    Orgeron has become aware of the closed-door meeting later this week and has been in contact several of the head coaches that are expected to be in attendance, a source said. Orgeron has tried to stop the meeting and told some coaches he will devise a plan to try and correct the situation.

    The meeting remains scheduled, and it is expected that the head coaches will move to boycott LSU moving forward.

    Some of the schools expected to be in attendance include McDonogh 35, Edna Karr, Landry-Walker, Warren Easton and St. Augustine. These are some of the primary public schools in the city that have produced several LSU signees in recent years, including Leonard Fournette, Tyrann Mathieu, Jamal Pettigrew, Donnie Alexander, Isaiah Washington, Andre Anthony, Tyron Johnson, Sci Martin and, most recently, McMath.

    New Orleans is regularly LSUís most fertile recruiting grounds and has produced several of the programís top players in recent years. The source intimated that other SEC programs have gotten wind of the meeting and could capitalize on the boycott, most notably Alabama. St. Augustine alum Burton Burns recruits the New Orleans region for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.

    This is terrible, former UGA player, only 33 years old:

    Reinhardt University (GA): Defensive line coach Quentin Moses died in a house fire Sunday morning. Moses worked at Reinhardt for six seasons and played at Georgia and in the NFL. He was 33 years old.

    Lane Kiffin hired Charlie Weis Jr. (Charlie's fat ass son) as his TE's coach. The kid is around 23, 24 years old. He's been an "analyst" at Alabama the last two years. He spent his freshman year at UF as a "student assistant" (Charlie Sr. was Muschamp's OC in 2011)....then he followed his dad to Kansas for the disaster that Charlie Sr. put on as a "student assistant".....then went to Alabama as an analyst. I suppose Saban owed Charlie Sr. a favor? Why would Saban give that fat POS a job? And now Kiffin hired him as his TE's coach? WTF?

    New England Patriots tight ends coach Brian Daboll is expected to interview for the Alabama offensive coordinator job, a source told Fox Sports on Monday. The 41-year-old Daboll, who has been an OC in the NFL for the Chiefs, Browns and Dolphins, was a graduate assistant under Nick Saban at Michigan State from 1998-99

    I still think this kid can be decent if he learns a little accuracy...be interesting to see where he goes:

    Six weeks after saying he planned to finish his college career at LSU, Brandon Harris has had a change of heart.
    The quarterback announced Monday he will play out his eligibility elsewhere as a graduate transfer and has been given a full release by Tigers coach Ed Orgeron. Harris will graduate this spring, and he said in a statement on Twitter that he's excited to find the "best place" to further his education and playing career next season.

    Mel Kiper has 14 SEC guys in his 1st round mock draft.

    Saw today that Vandy's not going to have a spring game. That's a bad move, imo. As an SEC team, the SEC Network would have aired the game. It's a recruiting miss on Vandy's part.

    What's going on w/ Bama's OC search? They interviewed some odd candidates, imo.

    in addition to Daboll at OC expecting they hire ex-OC from Ole Miss, Dan Werner, in Sark's old analyst position to work with the qb's. that would be a great move as Daboll didn't get much out of his QB's as an OC in NFL

    Werner would be a good pick up for bama but there is a problem. If he is hired as an analyst it would be a violation for him to instruct or work with the QB's. He could enroll in grad school and be a Ga - that would get you around that obstacle. Or, you could champion an old bama tradition and ignore the NCAA.

    I agree with you on Daboll - strange hire. Hard not to be successful with all that talent, but on the surface it doesn't seem like his philosophy meshes with Hurts skill set or the direction bama has taken their offense the last couple of years.

    wrong again, deadlast.


    Everyone is expecting the new 10-coach rule to go into effect in April meeting so if Saban brings Werner on now as an analyst he can slide him into that 10th coaching slot for 2017 before Werner becomes a hot commodity. good try, though...way to come up big. let me know when you get something right

    it's saban's world...you're just living in it. should be used to it by now

    werner might want to hold out for an OC position anyway...i'm just telling you he's interviewed to replace sark with a 10th slot in mind

    two more leaving Tuscaloosa as our Director of Football Operations and Director of Player Development have taken new jobs.

    Add one more vacancy within the football department at Alabama that is in need of being filled. Alabama Director of Football Operations Justin Dickens is reportedly leaving the program, according to Matt Zenitz of AL.com.
    Where Dickens is heading next is unknown and unreported. Alabama has not officially made any statement regarding the status of Dickens, although it is worth noting his profile page on Alabamaís football website has been removed.
    Alabama hired Dickens to serve as the programís director of football operations in 2015 after he had spent one year at Michigan in the same role. Dickens also spent three years in the Michigan program working with the football programís public relations and media relations efforts.

    ______________________________________________________________________________




    Ole Miss has completed a search for its defensive line coach.

    The university officially announced the hire of Alabama's Freddie Roach as defensive line coach Thursday night. Roach has been the Crimson Tide's director of player development the past two seasons.

    ďFreddie brings instant credibility to our defensive line room,Ē Hugh Freeze said in a statement. ďHis coaching skills and passion for the game make a him a great fit for our staff. As a highly successful player and coach, Freddie has been a part of championship programs, and we look forward to having his experience on our team.Ē
    Scott was hired to replace Chris Kiffin, who took the defensive coordinator job on his brother Lane's staff at Florida Atlantic in December.

    RT, I'm going to type this real slow. Pay close attention. I said if he was hired as an analyst it would create a problem. Didn't say it would be a problem if he is moved into a coaching position.

    As for the 10 coach rule, not everyone expects it to go into effect this year. Actually, people who keep up expect just the opposite. The original proposal passed in October was amended this month with a new start date of January 2018. With a majority of non-power 5 schools opposing the amendment it could get pushed back even further. I know that will not sit well with saban (or should I say, in his world) but it is what it is.

    Seriously rt, I'm just poking fun at you in a joking kinda way. Werner is a damn good coach. If you guys get him on board - be it coach, analyst or what not - he will be an asset.

    Brandon Harris made headlines this week with the announcement that he is leaving LSU in search of more playing time. The class of 2014 signee entered the 2016 season as the starter, but was benched in favor of Purdue transfer Danny Etling. With Etling returning, as well as a pair of highly rated freshmen coming in, Harris figured his best opportunity was to finish his career elsewhere.
    Harris is far from alone. In the 2012-15 recruiting classes, 36 SEC quarterbacks eventually went elsewhere looking for playing time, with varying levels of success.
    Here’s how those four recent classes compare by the numbers:
    2012

    QBs signed by SEC: 16
    NSD signees who graduated from SEC school: 6
    Graduated as quarterback: 3
    Transfers: 11 (Kentucky signee Patrick Towles used graduate transfer)

    The 2012 class can be uniquely counted because these careers are over, with the possible exception of Matt Davis, a former Texas A&M signee who transferred to SMU and suffered a season-ending injury early in the 2016 season. Davis could possibly receive a sixth year of eligibility.
    Out of the 16 signees, only Bo Wallace (Ole Miss), Perry Orth (South Carolina) and Towles (pictured) can really say they spent their college years as SEC quarterbacks from enrollment to graduation. There were a couple position changes among the SEC grads, as Auburn moved Jonathan Wallace to receiver and Kentucky’s Jeff Witthuhn became a fullback.
    Credit: Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

    Of the 11 transfers, five finished their careers as starting quarterbacks:

    • Patrick Towles, Boston College (Kentucky)
    • Jalen Whitlow, Eastern Illinois (Kentucky)
    • Nathan Peterman, Pittsburgh (Tennessee)
    • Matt Davis, SMU (Texas A&M)
    • Skyler Mornhinweg, Columbia (Florida)

    2013

    QBs signed: 23 (Vanderbilt’s Chad Kanoff changed decision after signing)
    Graduated from same school: 6
    Graduated as SEC team’s starting QB: 1 (Josh Dobbs, Tennessee)
    Active SEC starting QBs: 1 (Austin Allen, Arkansas)
    Signed with baseball minor leagues: 2 (Texas A&M’s Kohl Stewart, Mississippi State’s Cord Sandberg)
    Transfers: 13

    Aside from the baseball minor leaguers, the other 20 signees who enrolled with SEC schools all hoped to be career starters. The only SEC starter to graduate from the class is Dobbs, with Allen likely joining him after a fifth year.



    Of the 13 transfers, only three are documented successes. Anthony Jennings became Louisiana Lafayette’s starter after leaving LSU. Former Tennessee signee Riley Ferguson is considered Memphis’ top quarterback. Former Texas A&M QB Kenny Hill started for TCU this past season.

    The jury is still out on a pair of active transfers: Former Alabama QB Cooper Bateman has landed at Utah and former MSU QB Damian Williams announced in December that he’s heading to Texas State.

    QBs signed: 15
    Actively on SEC rosters: 6
    Current SEC starters: 3
    Transfers: 8

    Even though all 15 signees are three years removed from high school graduation, none has made the jump to the NFL after their junior or redshirt sophomore seasons. Nick Fitzgerald (Mississippi State), Drew Barker (Kentucky) and Sean White (Auburn) are the three SEC starters, though White might lose his starting job this spring.
    There have been eight transfers, with four involving other FBS programs: Kyle Allen (Texas A&M to Houston), Will Grier (Florida to West Virginia), Rafe Peavey (Arkansas to SMU) and Jacob Park (Georgia to Iowa State), having already taken place. Allen, Grier and Peavey all sat out this past season as part of transfer rules.

    Alabama QB David Cornwell announced he was transferring prior to this past season’s College Football Playoff, and has signed on at Nevada. A pair of 2014 signees, Elijah Staley (Mississippi State) and Kendrick Doss (Ole Miss), have gone the junior college route in their transfers.
    Harris is reportedly deciding on his next school.
    2015

    QBs signed: 15
    Actively on SEC rosters: 9
    Current SEC starters: 2 (does not include UT starting WR Jauan Jennings)
    Transfers: 4

    The 2015 class is notably low on transfers, but that could change if some of the backups don’t see playing time in their future. Signees from this class at Arkansas (Ty Storey), Auburn (Tyler Queen), LSU (Justin McMillan), Tennessee (Sheriron Jones, Quentin Dormady) and Texas A&M (Jake Hubenak) are all on the active rosters, but haven’t been named starters.
    There are a pair of active starers from the class: Missouri’s Drew Lock and Vanderbilt’s Kyle Shurmur. The biggest success story, Ole Miss’ Chad Kelly, is off to the NFL.
    The class had a pair of high-profile transfers by Blake Barnett (Alabama to Arizona State) and Kyler Murray (Texas A&M to Oklahoma). Former South Carolina QB Lorenzo Nunez and Mississippi State’s Nick Tiano also left to find a better fit.

    it's saban's world...you're just living in it. should be used to it by now

    werner might want to hold out for an OC position anyway...i'm just telling you he's interviewed to replace sark with a 10th slot in mind
    RT, there's actually talk that the 10th assistant won't get voted on until next year (due to Group of 5 schools complaining they cannot afford the additional position):

    There is some key pushback against the proposed delay of a 10th assistant coach.
    CoachingSearch broke the news Tuesday that the MAC proposed delaying the implementation of a 10th assistant coach (if it passes), to January, instead of immediately in April, citing timing and budget issues. But Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby says it’s not worth waiting
    "(The committee has) talked about it at length. Tell me if you think it's less disruptive if it's Aug. 1, Dec. 1 or Jan. 15?" Bowlsby told The Associated Press. "There's going to be disruption no matter when it goes into effect."
    The vote on the amendment and then the 10th assistant proposal comes on April 14.
