I'm gonna maintain that I need confirmation before I believe that.
How many think Auburn would hire Kirby more because they think it would hurt Bama, as opposed to hiring him because he is the best man for the job
No offense, but I live in Auburn and I think that's the last reason they would hire him. They're much more concerned about getting the right guy, and most of them I have talked to are worried about hiring Kirby because 1) They're not sure how much Kirby has actually been calling the defense and 2) They're afraid he will up and leave if he gets the chance to go to UGA or come back to us. Having said that, I think they'd enjoy seeing our meltdown if they did hire him.
I can understand #1, but #2.. they don't have to worry about in my opinion. If he leaves and goes to Auburn, Kirby will never be the coach at Alabama, and the chances at Georgia would greatly diminish. Now I realize that we have had assistant coaches that were at Auburn before Alabama, but we will not hire a head coach from Auburn.
