If Auburn believes that Smart will leave Alabama for an "assistant" job on the plains they are more delusional than the Ga Puppy fans......and that would be an epic accomplishment.
I dont think OP meant that kirby was being considered for an asst job at AU. He is a current asst being considered for the HC job. I would think AU would be pretty far down on KS wish list given what else is likely to be available , the disaster that AU has become, and the fact that he would disqualify himself from succeeding Saban if he took the AU job.
^^^I think this is correct.
Why wont AU win some games for Chiz?? Damnit!
If Trooper survives this potential colossal purge, I will forever LMFAO at AU more than I ever did.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
So true. So very very true.
Holgorsen - Has a good thing going at West Virginia. I think he would look at the AU roster and see talent, but no QB. That doesn't exactly work for his offense.
Franklin - Could jump at the job. They have talent on that roster, at least according to the recruiting services, and he could turn a manageable schedule into an 8 to 10 win season.
Petrino - Seems like a match made in heaven.
Malzahn - I think he's had his fill of the Auburn Family.
Kirby - I doubt it.
One thing is certain here, even off the field, Auburn has lost. If they are willing to set aside their beloved "Auburn Creed" to hire a coach with questionable ethics (Petrino, Holgersen, Trooper Taylor) then they've sold their souls to win in football.
I dont think TT will be kept by any staff. He has his own non auburn issues right now.
Well, Lets just say he has been sent to the principals office.......
They've already trashed the Auburn Creed.
Turn the page rookie!
No incoming head coach worth his salt will have his choices for assistants dictated to him as a condition of his hiring.
not trying to one up the OP but I have a family member who is pretty big fan supporter of Barn and he says that Dye will get Chiz one more year with a huge change over with Asst coaches...If Chiz cant win next year Jacobs,Dye and Chiz will get sent packing because they are realizing they will not a get a quality coach with PFD in the way...Next coach will get a CNS like deal not the money but a total control type deal..I agree with the last part thats the only way to get a big time coach is to get out of his way...RTR
Did he turn them down before? I thought he was basically hired and then the JetGate stuff came out and they had to back off.
Petrino knows where the bodies are buried down on the Plains, which makes him all the more likely, IMO.
For non-auburn issues? TIA.
This! You cant make the statement that you will get a good coach, then also say TT will be retained! A real coach will want to hire his own assistants.
He would recruit better at au than he did at arky. Recruiting would be "taken care of" for him at au. The guy made arky a top 10 program and he would have better talent at au. Would be beat Saban at au?no. But not sure why you would want him at au when he would make them a top 10 program.
A real coach wouldn't want to be associated with that clown.
My question is who is going to send Dye packing? Dye runs the program and controls Jacobs. The only way Dye would get sent packing is if the University President did it or Dye stepped down. We know he will never step down on his own. And if the President had the power it would have already been done. Dye has been on the school payroll for 20 years since being fired and they have allowed him to remain there. No way Dye is sent packing. The guy will run that program until the day his liver dries up.
My manager is a big barner and he keeps saying a lot of other boosters miss having Lowder around. No one else has the balls or $$ to stand up to Dye
