What would you do?
We have a very limited budget and for recruiting this is awful. UAB needs a coach now and apparently the current staff has not done much recruiting lately. Hire Niblett from Hoover. He knows the high school players in the state. We should play some if not all our games in Hoover are if possible Regions Downtown. We can afford Neblett and we need recruits if we played in Hoover our crowds would be larger. Would I love to hire someone else. Definitely, but we cannot afford that. He can't be worse than Callaway.

Niblett is a high character guy, and a winner.

I'd be okay with the hire. I would not be okay with moving the games to Hoover.

The only thing more humiliating than your coach willingly taking a demotion to get away from you is replacing him with a high school coach.

Are we trying to see how low we can push the program.

High school is not college. Unless a high school coach has a lot of college coaching experience, it would be a huge joke to hire a high school coach.

I'd rather stay at Legion Field than play at the Met.

+1

Also, some of the people on here act like we can't afford anybody. McGee was making more than a lot of other head coaches around the country, so it's not true. Also, our DC was one of the top paid assistants in CUSA, maybe THE top.

We can afford a quality coach. We just need some good timing and maybe a little luck.

Been to several high school FB games at the Met. I like the Met. Enjoyed watching high schools play there. It is not D1. Not even close. UAB cannot play at the Met.

There are plenty of coaches that would crawl to Birmingham for a HC job. I just wonder if the next coach gets some of the same dumb ass questions from radio and tv media? lol
