Phillip, I've heard you talk a lot about being confused about why people act like it's a big deal or maybe the sky is falling when Auburn loses its coordinators, but the same doesn't seem to apply to Alabama. Could it be that it's because CGC puts his assistants out there and doesn't just consume all the oxygen in the room? Maybe this is just a small price to pay for the benefit of allowing assistants to be high profile. In many people's eyes, Malzahn, Trooper, and Luper had as much to do with our NC as CGC did. We almost packaged it like Clinton did when he ran for President and mentioned Hillary as a 2 for 1/buy one get one free deal. So, I can certainly see why change in our staff gets more attention. Frankly, nobody cares who works for Saban because the press knows he's the dictator and he'll just fill in the blanks and probably keep winning. In my opinion, Chizik is doing the right thing to give assistants the opportunity to be high profile. It sure paid dividends so far.
It's a new day in Auburn football!
