List from NFL.com of some hot NFL HC names- note no mention of Saban, but includes Chip Kelly and Bill O'Brien. Kelly would pretty interesting IMO. He's creative enough to tweak his offense, is a player's coach, and a lot of his tenets are starting to be implemented in the league (see New England meeting with him in the offseason to work on their newer no huddle offense).
With the head-coaching carousel threatening to turn (hello, Cleveland!), Daniel Jeremiah examines seven candidates who might be in line for jobs. Oregons Chip Kelly is at the top of the list.

Obviously CNS isn't mentioned since he will the duel coach of both the Texas Longhorns and Cleveland Browns
Someone mentioned him in the comments though. Say, for the same of argument, that we win the NC this year, and follow it up next year with another. That would be 4 in 5 years, to go along with the NC from LSU. I wonder if CNS would feel like this isn't challenging and want something different. People talk about CNS being motivated by his legacy. The only thing that concerns me about the NFL with him is that people generally consider him a failure at the NFL level. You know that has to eat at a guy like him. Not saying it will happen, but I also wouldn't be totally shocked to see him give it another shot at some point. I'm all for him retiring at Alabama after winning enough NC's to be Coach Bryant's equal though.
Like others above have mentioned, I just don't get the Chip Kelly thing. Maybe I haven't done my homework and he has some strong NFL ties.
What they do on offense will not work in the NFL. It's been proven not to work. There have been a few trickle up things (Wildcat) that were a fad for quite a little while, but anything that involves 10 million dollars running around the field with 11 guys chasing it trying to cash in isn't going to work.
If the 2010 Auburn Tigers defense can expose you........well I think yo.u get the picture
Yeah, looks like Oregon will go through turmoil with coaching change, first Belotti, next Kelly. Wonder who they will go after. Lots of Nike money to spend up there. Think Oregon is
so far off that they skunk-smell on Petrino won't be noticed up there? Petrino could walk in and take up where Kelly left off.......
There's a lot more crossover from Kelly's offense into the NFL than people want to think. NFL teams have been borrowing ideas from his stuff since he was an OC at New Hampshire. There's little to no correlation to anything Wildcat and the offense is really efficient on all levels, including passing. He'd obviously have to tweak a few things like the QB running it that much (but doesn't as much as people think already) and is smart enough to do that. I'm not saying he would come in and lead the league in points or anything, but it's a lot more feasible than many give credit for.

Charles what is your problem? Seriously? This list is crap with no mention of trooper taylor
You do bring up a valid question. I think the best advice would be to enjoy the moment and where Alabama is right now.
That is great advice to all of us.
