If Diaz is out this is the man Texas has got to be hunting for... Don't know who he is time in the the bans mizzou game.... He is the guy that orchestrates their D. Watch and give me fees back
Kirby Smart won't leave Alabama for anything less than a HC spot imo.
Agreed. At Alabama he is able to dominate with superior players and not as effective offenses. Exposing himself to spreads would only hurt, not help.
Nick Saban orchestrates that D and I want him as head coach. Pay him 10 million
Bring back Greg Robinson as a "special consultant"
Guys I'll admit Manny has his problems. But no DC will be effective with a soft team. And the HC sets the tone for a teams toughness. WM knew that. He went about it the wrong way spilling info to JS but it doesn't mean his opinions were wrong. This team needs NEW leadership. Leadership doesn't come from the DC. Its comes from the guy at the top.
If you feel their is not effective offenses in the sec why did they win 6 straight titles. Put OU or Wvu in the sec and it would be the same outcome they beat the doormates to the sec and get manhandled by the big boys. He is sabans predecessor I don't see why they won't offer it
Until Mack is gone any staff changes would just be like polishing a turd.
I didn't say that. I said you have less of a chance to get crapped on, as there aren't air-raid offenses that get tons of snaps. I think Smart's a good coach, and obviously Saban is a great one. I'm just saying why would he come here to be a coordinator, when it could only expose something. Right now his defense is almost flawless.
Multiple teams have had an opportunity to hire Smart, but haven't. I've read he doesn't interview well. Not sure if that is it or not.
Smart would not be a good hire at Texas. There are better candidates to pull from who are proven winners within the conference, including Briles and Patterson.

Briles doesn't excite me. I would be fine with Patterson. I just haven't seen enough defense from Briles for me to want him.
Do you really think either of those guys would give UT the time of day or would be good fits on the 40 acres?
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
Patterson would turn Texas into a machine.
Kirby wont leave for anything less than a high level HC job. For the guy who called him Sabans replacement, he has to go get some time as the head guy somewhere else first. Alabama will go after a big time guy when Saban retires.
Again, he has interviewed at high level jobs and doesn't get offers. There is a reason, but I don't know what it is. Bobby apparently has heard more.
