Saban: We don't hire people to come in and do what they do

Alabama has opened Spring practice with three new assistant coaches.

Former Clemson defensive ends coach Chris Rumph is the new defensive line coach.

The offensive staff has two new coaches with former Miami (FL) offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland and former Louisville quarterbacks coach Mike Groh joining the staff. Groh will coach the Alabama wide receivers.

Although Spring practice has just started, Nick appears to be in mid-season form.

Saban explained, “We don’t really hire people to come in and do what they do. We hire them to do what we want them to do. … I’m pleased and happy with the staff chemistry that we have — the way the guys work together.”

Our Saban translator broke down the aforementioned quote in other words. Basically, Saban is saying, “I know what the hell I’m doing. I just need a couple of guys to implement my plan, recruit, and keep players accountable. Aight, now, if we can do that, then I will make sure the right team in this state plays for the national championship.”

ESPNU will televise Saban walking around in a light blue sports coat on April 16th at 3 pm EST.
