Strength Coach Scott Cochran Explains Why He Left Alabama For Georgia
Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports
After 13 years, Alabama strength coach Scott Cochran left to join Kirby Smart at Georgia. He's finally breaking his silence about why he left...

”I’ve always wanted to coach and I found the best opportunity. Coach Smart gave it to me and I had to jump on it,” Cochran explained on Friday, via Matt Zenitz of “. . . I think everything happens for a reason. Timing is everything and, at the time, I felt like I was in a good place. Now, I feel like I’m in a great place!”
Is that really an explanation though?

YES Nick is a total Dick. Great coach, miserable to be around. No concern for others, insulting, demanding, self-centered. If a guy wants to coach and gets an offer elsewhere, he takes it unless he has some other issue.

Coach Saban should’ve tried Scott as the Special Teams Coach. It couldn’t be much worse than we’ve had.

I think I'll trust Saban's judgement on that. For a guy that's been around that long, there must have been a reason he didn't offer the job to him or try to keep him.

He’s a Coordinator at Georgia. He was a S&C coach at Bama. Nothing hard to figure out here.

Guess it’s better to coach than cheerleading on the sideline the whole game.

Why would this even be on a LSU board? I get more Bama info here than on TideFans. Thanks Tiger Droppings.
