Assistant Coaches come and go but Saban still keeps bringing in top classes.
There are probably 40-50 great coaches all across the country who have sent Saban their resume over the past few days. Saban will backfill this position with a great coach and great recruiter.
JP worked his way up in less than 6 years went from an assistant coach at Hoover to the DC at a top 10 college program making 500k a year. I hope it works out for him down there.
Well, when you keep having the nation's No. 1 recruiting class ...
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
There is a comman theme here. All of these guys work for Saban. I heard Lance Thompson, with my own ears, say that recruiting at Alabama is easy because all you have to do is introduce the kid to Saban. LT didn't kill it recruiting when he went to UT; Sal didn't kill it recruiting when he went to UT. We'll see if JP recruits well at FSU. Whoever fills his shoes will recruit lights out at Alabama under Saban. The sucess of all of those guys as recruiters is directly related to their working for Saban. Not saying they aren't great recruiters, but they will all recruit better for Saban than for another HC.
