What about Bill Napier - WR coach and a very good recruiter for Bama. He makes $375k, we could double that with an recruiting coordinator title.

 

Also, LSU RB coach Frank Wilson would be great.

 

Some great names, Brewster, Orgeron, Wickline/Klemm, Napier, Mathis/Porter - we could be in business by Jan 15 and do some damage in 3 weeks.

I think both of those are good, even great names. I'd be on board with Frank Wilson but not with Napier. Keeping Wyatt is extremely important because him being retained probably will land us Damarkus Lodge and Siverand. Also gets us in it for Newsome and the other names that are going to emerge in the next month since it's combine season. Should also help us keep Hemphill, can't stress enough how important it is to keep him.

Do not want Applewhite around. It's time for him to go and get some experience somewhere else.

 

 

I know this will be unpopular, but I am wait and see on Bedford. I think we could do better. He did a pretty bad job at OSU. It may have been talent...I don't know. Strong may really run this defense anyway. If so, then it won't matter.

Strong has his fingerprints all over the defense. Bedford brings familiarity and coaching chemistry with Strong as well as a Texas alum. He's a perfect fit. This is one of those unique situations where the fit is much more important than the sexy pick.

 

Claude Mathis would be a huge hire. He's a guy I touted over Porter. I forgot to put him on my list. It would also give me an IN with the coaching staff, so there's that.

I've always heard nothing but great things about Claude Mathis!

 

I would like to see Bob Shipley retained in the AD in some function. I have no insider knowledge, but my understanding is that he is well-respected.

 

Hook 'em!

This is just my personal opinion, but I think Coach Strong should keep Wyatt, Porter, Akina and maybe Giles. Then bring in Bedford and Moorer from UL, grab Bob Bostad from FA, hit a homerun with Herman or Montgomery. Also find the best TE/ST coach available.

 

Heck no on Akina. He was great teacher in the pre-spread days, the game has passed him by.

Not a bad hire But I think he wants someone with more experience. Tom Herman, Scott frost, etc.

 

No as well on Wyatt as the primary OC. Really need a OC/QB Coach who can do both really well. Keep Wyatt in same position and allow him to continue to develop is OC knowledge. His primary background is WR coach so gap in QB development.
