Congrats to Groh for advancing his career. Looks like we picked up someone young and very aggressive and has ties to the Carolina's. Ill take it! RTR
You'll never achieve great things until you believe that's what's supposed to happen
Napier will do a great job in both of those departments. Already familiar with the program from his time spent with the team before and is a very good recruiter.

Really hate to lose Groh, but can't fault him one bit for taking that job! This is a great sign IMO, we are used to seeing our defensive coaches getting promotions and moving on, but this is a first with offensive coaches, Groh and Stoutland both getting jobs in the NFL says just how great our program is right now! I coach Mac got a HC job, but it was at Colorado State, these are two position coaches getting NFL jobs!
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
So if you want to be a head coach or coach in the NFL go to work for Nick Saban, seems pertty simple to me...
I'm happy with the hires and for the work done by Bama coaches but F Urban Meyer and his comment after the NC game about Bama not turning coaches over.
napier is a great hire! hate to lose groh but napier is also a great recruiter.
Hate to lose Groh, but what a great opportunity, best of luck to him
Groh was fantastic. Really hate to see him leave. No doubt in my mind our WR's were more technically sound under him than anyone in recent memory. Learned a good deal from him on route-running and footwork at last year's coaching clinic.
With that said, I'm sure it will be plug-and-play with Napier. Good times.
Groh was an upgrade over CC in terms of developing WRs. Hopefully Napier will be another upgrade.
Hope we get Tee Martin

FSU does not like the hire
Noles247 has learned that Billy Napier is headed to Alabama.
I think Billy Napier's notice went something like this. "I've worked with Coach Saban, and sir, you are no Coach Saban!"
Jimbo's response, "But, but I've tried to hire everyone that has worked for him, and, and I just started an Oatmeal creme pie regimen..."
First thing I'd be telling him lol?
Napier - meet JF, Josh this is your new recruiter.
3rd post down on the FSU board reacting to the hire: "What a punch in the dick"
Another in response to how bad this sucks for them:
"Sure as sh*t does. But we'll just see what happens as a result.
I used to love that Saban was at Bama, because it meant hell for UF. Now, I think it's time for Saban to go and die. "

Talent and QB play had alot to do with the Wr production. He was a good coach and a great recruiter but the new guy will be just just as productive.
Hahaha, thanks for posting. +1
Sometimes, you just gotta know when to stay and when to Groh...
I wish him the very best!
He came, he Grohed, and now he's gone...
You won't live long in life if you can't make fun of yourself with a horrible sense of humor.
DaxStax <<< Not funny.
