Ha, touche cc. Good to see you - we don't hear enough from you!
Hart at UT repeatedly said they were only looking at coaches with head coaching experience. Kirby did not turn down UT. Malzahn was au's choice from the beginning. Kirby interviewing with them was just a dog and pony show. He asked them for control of the program, full disclosure of the NCAA investigations, and to be allowed to coach in the BCSNCG and was told no. Even if he was offered the job, which he wasnt, those are valid reasons to do so.
Lawd ham mercy!!!
There is nothing to fu(k!ng worry about...jeez! If he does leave, the administration NOW understands the road map required for success and the type of leader that must head this ship.
Of note, I DO NOT believe that CNS is going anywhere to coach after Alabama,especially for the next 2-3 years.

Kirby did not turn down Aubarn or UT. Neither offered. Period
Kirby turned down AU by default when he demanded total control and full transparency. The UT job NEVER really get off the ground.
PREACH IT BOOMS......PREACH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a lot of fear on this board. 92DT was literally just asking a question, and a very legit one at that. If any of you have played sports, you'd realize that it is EXTREMELY difficult for a competitor to maintain motivation while on top of the world repeatedly, and that being tagged as a failure in any area would make any competitor desire to prove the naysayers wrong. Saban is extremely process driven, but he is also a human being. He is motivated by the exact same things that we all are. I personally think he will stay in the end, but there is no way he doesn't take a look at the job regardless.
Either way, I'm a huge CNS fan and his book heavily influenced my training philosophy for my sport when I read it 4 years ago (I was 18 at the time). If he did leave, I'd become a huge Browns fan. Alabama will be fine regardless of what happens, as CKS would step up, learn on the job, and be here for a long time. Again though, I think CNS stays. RTR!
I think the OP has a few valid points and concerns. I mentioned in a few other threads that the Browns are playing great right now. I think we just need to pull for them and hope they end the year 7-9 or 8-8. If Shurmur does that he may keep his job. He has one of the youngest rosters in the NFL.
Healthy discussion, even if some people get their panties in a wad or get mad at reading stuff they don't have to read.
Wasnt flaming at all just frustrated. Might have come of strong didnt mean it that way. Also didnt down vote cause I like the discussion

I meant it as if he did turn it down. I had no idea.
I understand your feelings BUT HE IS NOT LEAVING. All of this continued chat on the message boards is a distraction to our team and to recruting. I have a family member on the Board of UA, he is not leaving ok Again, I understand your feelings but he is not going anywhere.
