“Coach Stoutland did an excellent job with our offensive line along with each and every responsibility he had while he was here at the University of Alabama. We appreciate all that he did in terms of his time and his dedication in contributing to the success we’ve had over the last two years. He’s an outstanding coach and he will do a great job with the Eagles. We wish him and his family the best.”

Chris...It would be interesting to get a comment or two from Coach Stoutland about his experiences at Alabama. I know all Alabama fans want to thank him for his contributions and wish him well in the NFL
Chris, have you heard any names swirling around that may be in line to replace CJS? TIA

I feel like this statement is a "Mad Lib" where you just plug in the coach and other teams name. Part of the process. Can't waste time on goodbyes. Thanks Stoutland!

We will try and get him down the road, and no, I don't think there's a front runner to replace Stoutland yet. Wednesday was NSD and Saban is headed to Lake Burton on Thursday morning.
Thanks coach Stoutland.Good luck with the Eagles....RTR
Seems like the popular name on here is Will Friend, but I am thinking about Mike Bloomgren from Stanford. He was a grad assistant here and got a Masters here as well. He has NFL ties which is another thing Saban likes. Here is his profile

Chris, do you get the sense that his departure may have any connection with the Miami shenanigans? Not that he didn't do a fantastic job coaching our line, but one has to wonder if our discovery of his involvement (however minor it may have been) with the mess at the U might have resulted in CNS encouraging him to move on. Maybe not, but one has to wonder a bit.
This is funny but true. Thanks for coming by. I will bring in another coach and never miss a beat
Looks like he got the OC job about ten days ago.
Mike Bloomgren has been elevated to Andrew Luck Director of Offense / Offensive Coordinator, while continuing to coach the offensive line. Bloomgren has been Stanford's Run-Game Coordinator the past two years.
Head coach David Shaw today announced three internal coaching staff changes for the Cardinal offense in 2013.
I was thinking the same thing, but then realized he had taken over as offensive coordinator for Stanford. He is not going to take a demotion, even if we paid him more.
No Bloomgren. Jimbo Fischer would be after him next year.
Chip Kelly has put together a 20-man coaching staff for the Eagles, plus a sports science "coach."
Defense: Bill Davis (defensive coordinator), Jerry Azzinaro (defensive line / assistant head coach), Mike Dawson (defensive quality control), John Lovett (defensive backs), Todd Lyght (assistant defensive backs), Bill McGovern (outside linebackers), Rick Minter (inside linebackers), and Erik Chinander (assistant defensive line).
Offense: Pat Shurmur (offensive coordinator), Greg Austin (assistant offensive line),
Bob Bicknell (wide receivers), Bill Lazor (quarterbacks), Ted Williams (tight ends), Justin Peelle (assistant tight ends), Duce Staley (running backs), Jeff Stoutland (offensive line), Press Taylor (offensive quality control)
Special teams: Dave Fipp (special teams coordinator), Matt Harper (assistant special teams coach).
Josh Hingst (strength and conditioning) and Shaun Huls (sports science coordinator) are also a part of the staff.
Pretty damned good staff ol chip has gotten together up in Philly..should do great things..

Absolute home run by Chip Kelly. The Eagles' OL this year was atrocious outside of Evan Mathis (incidentally an alum) and all he did was grab arguably the best OL coach in the NCAA.
Wish him all the best. A lot of our recent turnover hires seem to have been upgrades so I'm optimistic about who Saban will find.
Wait...the offensive coordinator's title is named after a QB just 1 season removed from playing there?
I realize it wouldn't happen, but I would love to see the replacement be Hudson Houck getting lured out of retirement to be reunited with Saban. Houck is getting up there in age, but I'd love to have him for a few years.

Kind of lame that they would do that IMO.
So what happened to Pep Hamilton?
you didn't know Burton Burns was the Mark Ingram Executive Officer of the Running Backs?
Very confident that Bama will find a great OL coach to replace Stout. I hope we can get a guy with South Florida ties on the staff also. I believe that was Stoutlands territory, and next year South Florida is loaded.
First Round QB money talks.
