He is a Bowden (and when I say Bowden I mean Bowden family, Terry, Tommy, and Bobby) protege, not a Saban protege. Saying J. Fisher is a Saban protege would be just as incorrect as saying Will Muschamp (who is, in fact, a Saban protege) is a Tommy Tuberville protege.
I know it's important for the national media to prop up Saban as much as possible, which means crediting him for the success of as many head coaches in his "tree" as possible, but we don't have to repeat the myth.
Sorry, just wanted to get that off my chest.
Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
J. Fisher I think actually is married to Bowden's daughter if I remember correctly.
I don't think it matters anyway... all of the coaches you listed have been National Coach of the Year. Hopefully he took all of the good from each. I would love to have him at my school!
No, he's not. His wife is from Piedmont, AL, no relation to the Bowdens at all.
No, she's married to Jack Hines. The Fishers were long time family friends with the Bowdens. I'm not sure what their relationship is like now.

I agree fully.
he spent way more time with the bowdens than he did with saban. besides, that saban tree aint looking too good lately. sunseri, kevin steele, and dooley are the latest failures, and please don't tell me how good tennesses defense was this year. lol
