While we will find out a lot about Pruitt's coaching ability as a DC, we already know he is a great recruiter... However, how much do we really know about his coaching ability?? Right Now, in my humble opinion our MOST IMPORTANT assistant coaches are Burton Burns, Jeff Stoutland, Mike Groh and Kirby Smart... While they are all IMPORTANT, I am referring to the way that those positions played this year and their attention to detail...
You guys may have different ones you think are more important, that is the great thing about this board is that we can come together as a fan base and discuss these type of things...

Gotta look at it this way: EVERY departure of an assistant is an Opportunity for an Upgrade.

This. As a business owner, I have always viewed personnel changes with this exact philosophy.
And it's not a slight to the departing party (I'm a business owner too). Heck, even Saban has said this himself in the past.
Will he coach through the championship game like Mac did?
From a post I read, that answer is yes...
I would include rumph as well good sir
I think Saban and Jimbo have a lot of respect for each other, and I expect that to mean Jimbo wants Pruitt to do it the right way. Plus, he gets Musberger and Herbstreit talking incessantly about Pruitt leaving for FSU during the game and whether his head was right preparing his players. You can't buy that type of pub for your program.
I was always under the impression that Jimbo didn't like Saban?? Wrong impression?
Like and respect are not always congruent.
