"Alabama's option is right up the road"
Don't know who this guy is, but someone needs to shut him up

Quote:How long will Alabama go without a new head coach? Gregg Marshall and Richard Pitino essentially both said “thanks, but no thanks.” The search for the new Tide coach reminds me of Oregon’s search four years ago. It took 39 days before the Ducks hired Dana Altman. I’d say that worked out. The best option for Bama may be right up the road with UAB’s Jerod Haase.

I've been curious if they would actually consider going after him or if the BOT would tell them to stay away due to the current situation. I assume they are going to stay away whether they want him or not.

RE: "Alabama's option is right up the road"
I heard something that caught my attention this morning while listening to Gregg Marshall on Mike and Mike. He made a comment that AD Battle and people from the BOT were nothing but complete gentlemen to him during this whole process.

Why was the BOT involved in recruiting Marshall for the Bama coaching job? Is this a common practice with them?

They take everything else from us as they think it's theirs anyway so he may not be that far off base at least as far as UAT in concerned. Haase may not but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if they go after him w/ the blessing of Watts & Co

If I were Haase I would stay put and win some more with this young team, then watch my coaching stock rise. In other words, I don't see Haase leaving for the next few years.

Bama would hire a up and coming female coach before they looked at Haase. Too much pride to do such a thing. And it would not be the type of attention the BOT would seek at the moment considering everything that is going on with UAB Athletics and Watts.

I doubt Haase would take the bama job with everything that has gone down. Plus if it happened, then it would stir up the #freeuab movement and give more credence to our claims of interference. Maybe it will eventually force the NCAA get involved. You know boosters of another school controlling our school.

I really doubt anyone in the UA AD office is unaware of BBHC Haase and what he has accomplished at UAB. As Battle and company work their way down the coaching "food chain", they will hear more about Haase from their own money people. Those in the UA AD office are probably as fond of the idea of hiring him as they are any other UAB head coach. They still have a few names on their list before total desperation sets in.

RE: "Alabama's option is right up the road"
They'd take Louisiana Tech's coach before they would take UAB's, and they consider Mike White beneath them. I think he'd be a great hire, but after all the "splash hire" and "Sabanesque coaching hire" talk, the bammers would split a gut over it.

Hiring UAB's coach would be as bad or worse, and carries the risk of the BoT being crucified over raiding our recently extended coach to boot.

No way.

It did my heart good to see that Richard Pitino joined the list of those who said "Ummm, thanks, but no thanks."

Alabama is not a desirable job. Why would anyone want to coach there.
