Nick Saban is the G.O.A.T (Greatest Of All-Time). He has proved this over and over again. Now, he’s won more National Championships than any other College football Head Coach ever, seven. The thing that makes any argument against him harder is he doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.
The most recent leak of Saban pitching to a recruit just further states the facts, and you can’t argue with it.
He doesn’t offer McDonald’s bags full of money or a new Dodge Challenger, no, he offers the recruits a challenge to be better. Saban’s Alabama Program has produced more NFL players than any other program in the last 11 years, a lot of his assistants have gone on to become Head Coaches. They also Continue to be in the big game and continue to dominate records, awards, and recruiting.
He wins. The program is more than just a dynasty. No college team has accomplished more in 11 years than this Saban led program has. This upcoming season the Crimson Tide not only has the best recruiting class coming in with seven, five-star players so far, they also could have the best coaching staff college football has seen.
The Departure of Steve Sarkisian seems big to Lane Kiffin (head Coach at Ole Miss), Jeremey Pruitt (Head Coach at the University of Tennessee, until a couple of weeks ago), or Kirby Smart (Head Coach at Georgia) would ruin the program as well. The assistant jobs at Alabama are like a revolving door it happens every year or two. The two new hires create another record for the program, Alabama now with 3 Former NFL head coaches. That becomes the most former NFL head coaches ever on a college football staff. Several programs have had 2 former NFL head coaches on their staff but none have had 3.
Bill O’Brien will be Alabama’s new Offensive Coordinator coming off a poor start in his 6th season as the Houston Texans Head Coach and his second season in the GM role as well. O’Brien also worked as the Head Coach at Penn State before taking the Texans job. This role may be a downgrade for him but the chance to work under Saban always proves well.
The other former head coach and new hire is the new line coach, Doug Marrone, who was the Jacksonville Jaguars head coach for the last 4 years. Before that, he was the Head Coach of Syracuse and the Buffalo Bills. Marrone like O’Brien brings a ton of experience this will be interesting to see how it plays out.
Lastly, the other former NFL head coach on the staff is none other than Nick Saban ( Miami Dolphins Head Coach). Nick Saban is the G.O.A.T, while he may not have had much success in the NFL he has proven to be arguably the best coach that college football has ever seen.
Nick Saban’s recruiting class this year has the highest overall grade of any class in the last 15 years, Considering they are coming off a National Championship win and now have 3 former NFL Head Coaches on the staff the level of success can definitely continue.
On top of all the other success, Alabama has had 3 Heisman Trophy winners in the past 11 years. Not only is this the case, but several other Crimson tide players have been nominated for the award as well. Not to mention this year’s Heisman Trophy winner Devonta Smith.
