Alabama AD Greg Byrne talked about Saban's new role back in January...

“He is going to be an advisor for us," Byrne said, via Tuscaloosa News "He’s been awesome. He and I talked during the coaching search. I mean, somebody asked me, 'Was he involved?' I was like, ‘Man, I’m not very smart.' Many people know that, but I’m smart enough to know when you have a chance to have Nick Saban involved with talking about coaching and football and decision-making and leadership, shame on me if I don’t take advantage of that."

I feel bad for the black guy who had that sweet $200k gig following Saban with the Gatorade cup. Is he still employed?

That would be Cedric Burns, he has been employed with Alabama for 36 years. He’s the only guy connected to Alabama football who can’t be fired.

This is nothing more than a recruiting tool. Let's be honest. "I'm still here. Come on over".

No sir, this is a fund raising tool. Saban brings in more money to Bama than anyone on that campus.

I like that the new coach will be unable to get out of Saban’s shadow literally. This will not go well for them and I will enjoy it thoroughly.

Panic Mode? The first six months of DeBoer couldnt have gone any better. Dude is straight up killing it on the recruiting trail. Just picked up a 5 star today and have a couple more that could commit any day. If that's panic Mode, I'll take that all day.

Saban signed 11 3 stars in a class once at Bama. Screw the stars. Can they play. Thats the question. People have this opinion that Saban ONLY signed 5 stars. Saban might have had 3 or 4 on average of in any of his classes. What is considered his best class in 2008 had 3 5 stars. Just look at other classes as well. 2010 class had ONE. 2015 had 3.

That extra 4 cents is funny as hell to me for some reason.

That's a bargain any day for some of Saban's advice on running an athletic department.

You never even think of proofreading do you you? It's embarrassing that a website gives you posting capabilities.
