When Alabama beat Georgia for the National Championship on Jan. 8, 2018, Nick Sabanís on-field coaching staff consisted of:

Brian Daboll, Jeremy Pruitt, Burton Burns, Mike Locksley, Brent Key, Joe Pannunzio, Karl Dunbar, Toshi Lupoi and Derrick Ansley. https://trib.al/EBnmK3B


Quote
As we sit here 374 days later, only Pannunzio remains on staff, and even heís coaching a different position than he was in 2017. (Pannunzio was tight ends coach then; heís now running backs coach).

Locksley, Lupoi, Gattis, Key and quarterbacks coach Dan Enos (who was hired prior to the 2018 season) have departed in just the last few days, since the Crimson Tide lost 44-16 to Clemson in the national title game. Itís a startling amount of turnover in a coaching staff, even one that has been in near-constant flux like Sabanís has over the years.

Itís worth noting that Locksley and Gattis both left for promotions (Locksley to become head coach at Maryland, Gattis to become offensive coordinator at Michigan), while Key took a job at his alma mater (Georgia Tech). But Enos (offensive coordinator at Miami) and Lupoi (defensive line coach with the Cleveland Browns) left in moves that could be considered lateral.

Itís been reported that Saban is leaning toward bringing back Steve Sarkisian (who briefly replaced Lane Kiffin as offensive coordinator for the 2016-17 national title game) as offensive coordinator, and it appears likely that analyst (and former Tennessee head coach) Butch Jones will stick around as an offensive position coach. But it remains to be seen what Saban will do with the other positions, including the all-important defensive coordinator.

The question is, when does this constant coaching turnover start to affect the Crimson Tide on the field? Has it already?

Yes, Alabama went 14-1 and reached the national championship game again this past season. But even the biggest Crimson Tide fan will tell that the wins over Georgia and Oklahoma this year werenít the 60-minutes-of-domination postseason victories weíve seen in the past against the likes of LSU, Notre Dame, Michigan State and Washington.

Can confirm that Alabama is expected to hire Sal Sunseri for a defensive coaching position on the staff, as first reported by @TimWatts_BOL.

Was on the Alabama staff from 2009 to 2011. His son, Vinnie, is now a GA at Alabama.


Alabama has hired former Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood as OL Coach.

JB, to answer your question as to what it means... perhaps it means those coaches were tired of having to be around so many dumb people in that hell hole of a state and jumped at a chance to leave. LOL

Was Sabanís first OC at Bama back in 2007.

Do not expect Chris Simms to arrive next in a big white limo.

Saban may be a tough boss, but itís clear heís not so bad that someone wouldnít want to work for him twice. Bo Davis, Jeremy Pruitt, Joe Pannunzio and Billy Napier can attest to that.

Now, Applewhite, Sunseri and Sarkisian are following in their footsteps https://trib.al/eELiY7m
