Who do you want as head coach?

Sarkisian is the best bet with, believe it or not, the lowest risk, imo.  If he hadn’t been an alcoholic, he would more than likely still be coaching at USC. USC is the Bama type job of the West coach. When a coach gets hired there, he’s earned it. If he didn’t work out for us, it would just be bad luck. There little room to say that he was a dud hire. And we took a risk in his ability to coach like Malzahn, Tubs and Chizik.

And hell if none of what I just said convinces you, Saban thinks he’s worth the risk. And Nick Saban is infinitely better at evaluating everything football than anyone on this board or even anyone envolved with Auburn at all. So I trust his judgment. Lol

Don’t know if it’s a positive or a negative with Sark but he would potentially continue the booger-picking trend we’ve had with the current regime. So, there’s that....

By the way; past the Cristobal/Brady level of potential candidates, there is also Billy Napier who is currently killing it as the HC at Louisiana in his third season there. They beat the piss out of #

The mentality of “we might end up worse than the mediocrity we are certain of” is such a loser mindset. You need look no further than our own men’s basketball program to see the incredible difference

Since we went down that road lol...

I like Crystobal and he’s second on my list to Sark, but I just don’t get why someone who doesn’t have ties to Auburn would leave Oregon where he has the facilities, Nike machine, and very little competition to come here and deal with all of us during an era where Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas AM are on the money with everything they do recruiting. 

All I can say is he has been in contact with certain Auburn people for over a year. I believe Saban wants Mario to replace him when he retires MC want no part of that.

Anybody that needs further evidence that Cristobal should take over our program should take this under consideration.

I always thought that Dabo was the heir apparent to Saban. That’s interesting. If I was Mario I’d be all over that job. Saban has that program basically running itself at this point.

Dabo won't take that job. You never want to be the guy that replaces "the guy"

Dabo as well as MC want no part of replacing a legend as big as Saban at this time........take a look at what happen to Ray Perkins replacing the bear......did not work out to well.....

True. Poor Cam and Stidham. Though I think the Bama fans for the most part understand that they caught lighting in a bottle twice with Bear and Saban. I’m not sure they’d be calling for the head of coach who was just “normal good”. Maybe I’m wrong though.

This. Talk about an impossible, thankless task. Someone will take the job, obviously, but just look how it worked out for Ray Perkins back in the day....

No disrespect at all but you are dead wrong..........

That places is a recruiting machine now. I’m interested to see just how much someone is even going to have to put forth effort to keep them at an elite level. 

I bet Gus could have them losing by 40 to Georgia in 3 seasons, though.

They wandered in the wilderness for about 15 year before Saban got there. The place has built in advantages, above and below board, but folks are minimizing how good of a job Saban has done. I hate the guy but it will be impossible to replicate and nearly impossible to sustain.

And, to further the point, Auburn is in position to get the guy that somebody with the ultimate credibility thinks is the guy that could take us to another level. We are also at a point where the vast majority of the fan base realizes our current coach has to go, the timing being the only issue. If we stay true to form we will d**k around until we end up with the next Tuberville/Chizik/Malzahn. I was SO hoping that Jethro moving on would allow us to run the AD like a professional, multimillion dollar business instead of a Mom&Pop (“family” if you will) shop. I have a sick feeling that I’m destined for disappointment here (and equally certain that the Gus defenders will consider me a heretic and not a “true fan”).  Ah well: que sera, sera

This gives me hope. If MC wants to come here send the dadgum jet! I have zero doubts he would produce a highly competitive offensive and defensive line, both of which are vital to SEC and national college football success. The dude has the right mindset, especially if Satan wants him to take his place at Bama. The guy is constantly reading books on military strategy, leadership techniques and football scouting, navy seals, etc. Like the saying goes "read to succeed". It would be interesting if he brought Moorhead and maybe hired Derek Mason for the DC position. Always helps to have former head coaches to give insight and input to better the program. But again, my hopes will likely be shattered when Gus ends up staying till 2023.

And actually now that I think about it even though the hs connection excuse is bull Gus hasn't been building our HS connections. If anything he made them worse, we don't have good relationships with Auburn or Phoenix city really......we don't have them in North Alabama.......I can't believe people even try to bring that excuse to the table really

Why would Dabo even think about leaving Clemson? With FSU in shambles, and Miami with still a long way to go, they have virtually nothing in their way to the ACC title and likely playoffs every year.  With USCe in disarray, they're not seriously challenging in either recruiting or on the field.

Anyone who minimizes what Saban has done at bama is just not being realistic at all.  He is arguably the best program builder (and sustainer) ever to coach CF!  I don’t like him or the school where he made it happen, and I especially don’t like their fan base, but it’s true.  Saban is the best.

I'm just gonna say that this is an underrated response and deserves more likes.

He is not. If he does it will be for the NFL
