It appears that Alabama OL coach is headed to the Eagles.
If so, don't be surprised if Stacy Searels gets a call from Nick Saban.

Convienient for him(the Bama OL coach) and Bama to wait until after signing day. Pretty crappy although I know that goes on alot.
If they end up taking Searles from us, it'll be very convenient for us, too.
Which scenario has better odds?
A) Texas money whips him
B) Searles can't resist the chance to recruit his old territory and jumps ship?
True but atleast ours would not be deciet as we didn't want Searles to go.
Applewhite would have to do some negative recruiting on what it's like to work for Saban. Unfortunately, everything I've heard, read, and seen from Searles would imply that he would prefer to work for a guy like Saban more than a guy like Mack.
Even if Searles leaves for ALA, he will just return to UT when Saban comes next year.

Searels has worked for Saban previously at LSU.
.......Or does he see a sinking ship? I think we are about a 9-10 team next year so we will be good. However if one of those loses includes another annual ass kicking by the Stoops brothers .....then 9-10 doesn't look so good.

On the flip side, there's a lot of downside risk for Searles to step into that OL job the year AFTER losing Barrett Jones, Warmack, and Fluker. Not too mention only having one year with Cyrus K.
That's 4 first rounders whose shoes he has to fill. Quite a challenge. Meanwhile, if he stays at Texas following MacWhorter, he'll be considered an OL coaching God in about 3 years.
Okay, who are the possible replacements
isnt Wickline available from OSU or did he not get replaced at OSU?
If Searles is gonna work for Saban, seems like the better option would be for Saban to just come to Texas
If you want to label it deceit, it's more of Alabama possibly asking the Eagles to wait until after signing day to hire Stoutland. I doubt 'Bama wants him to leave.
I've got no problem with schools doing this. There's never a good time to leave.
Studrawa is rumored to be out at LSU.
Searels isn't leaving...
Hope you're right.
