    Can't recruit illegally in the NFL... so he loses his luster automatically.

    Pete Caroll broke almost every rule imaginable in the NCAA. He's got plenty of luster with the Seahawks.

    I swear people on these forums are so blind... half of you still hate Carroll and thought the Seahawks were stupid to sign him... How do you feel about it now? While we're stuck with Munchak and his bunch of clueless clowns, the Seahawks are in the playoffs with a solid, young team.

    Saban is a good coach that wins championships. You'd really prefer Chip Kelly over Nick Saban (and I like Chip Kelly)? Really?

    Bud won't pay the ~7-8MM he'd ask for otherwise I'd be all over it.

    I'll say the same thing I've said in every single "______ for our next head coach" thread. We can't really do much worse than what we currently have.

    He was in the league two years.


    Nearly made the playoffs with a **** team.

    Bombed the next year after a few bad injuries.


    Saban would be an excellent hire.

    Bud ain't gonna pay him.

    I'm high-fiving you for the effort you put into this.

    I don't want Saban, but if somehow he was our only option and it meant Munchak was outta here... I'd be all for it.

    I've said it before about Saban... He's an incredible college coach. Give him 5 years at UK and he'd turn that scrub team into a championship team. But this doesn't necessarily translate to success in the NFL. He was not well liked by his players because he continued to treat them like Freshmen in college rather than men.

    And let's be real... If he comes back to the NFL he'll bail on his team within a few seasons. He said his goal would be to win a championship with three different schools. I expect him to get that third title elsewhere. Who knows... Maybe UT one day.

    Either way, I can't wait to see him leave Bama. The whole state might mass suicide.
