I think this guy might be the best RB coach in the business. I know he has had some talented backs to work with, but that talent still requires develpment. I feel he has done a phenomenal job of developing all of the RB talent that we've had.
There is no doubt in my mind that he is the best in the business. And as hard as it is to believe, he might be the single best position coach in the nation.
I had the chance to ask Mark Ingram about Burns and he said straight up taught him more about football and the intricacies of RB position than anyone else by far. Then he said not only did he make me the football player I am, he taught me how to be a man. He's impacting the guys lives off the field as well. Great man and great coach!
I don't think we give coach Burns enough credit. With the possible exception of DBs (for an obvious reason), our RBs have maybe been our most fundamentally sound, dependable position group in Saban's tenure.
Totally agree. Looking back over the last few years and our development and on field production at the RB position is nothing short of amazing...especially considering the D-lines these guys have to run against in the SEC. Big props to Coach Burns
Hard to argue with Burns' product on the field. Definitely one of the best. It might not be discussed a ton, but his pedigree and resume resonates with RB recruits.
