It'll be interesting what he will add to our offensive scheme. Saban will make him keep our offensive scheme and terminology for the most part, but each new OC always brings a new twist to the offense. I'll be shocked of he doesn't do well here.

Bama replaces a coordinator while they are still playing.

LSU has had weeks and still doesn’t have a D coordinator.

I'm thinking the first few games we will run the ball more and if we bring back Keilan we're going to be deadly.

O'Brien has almost an impossible task of trying to match Sarks offense of last two years.
He will forever be compared to that. Hope he is up to it.

He wont get enough credit for it, but he helped develop Watson into what he is now. He was adamant about developing his passing abilities to help elongate his career rather than having Watson lean on his athleticism/mobility running.

Did not know he was being given credit for Watsons development; thought he was pretty darn good in College.

It's a different game, you still gotta be coached in the pros. You can easily ruin any great talent with poor coaching.

BoB's offense is much more sophisticated than anything Clemson ran, and it helped Watson grow and maintain success as a passer. Relying on your legs first as a QB is often times not sustainable, whether by injury or effectiveness.

I'm thinking we'll be deadly regardless of whether KRob returns.

O'Brien's a very good coach.

Unfortunately for him (but maybe fortunately for us), he is a terrible GM.

I think it's a good hire.

Ok, but if Saban had used the time spent reeling in O'Brien prepping for OSU, would we have won by 50? Did O'Brien moving his office decorations into Sark's office distract Sark even further?

Seriously though, this seems like a good one. I haven't followed enough of his recent years to know what to expect of him as a playcaller, but Saban offensive hires often turn out differently than expected anyway and I think the biggest thing is that he has a track record of success. Really interested to see where we go for the OL hire.

Eagles fired Pederson. Stoutland may want to come back.
