OC Update

Several sites have listed an article from the Huntsville Times that Michigan's former quarterbacks coach might be the front runner for the OC. Scot Loeffler has been seen at the Capstone this week.

MemphisTider lists some names that have been thrown out:

  • Jeff Brohm (OC at Louisville)
  • Norm Chow (fired OC at Tennessee Titans)
  • Tom Clements (QB coach at Green Bay)
  • Gary Crowton (OC at LSU)
  • Adam Case (QB coach at Detroit Lions)
  • Bryan Harsin (OC at Boise State)
  • Chris Hatcher (HC at Georgia Southern)
  • Chip Kelly (OC at Oregon)
  • Freddie Kitchens (TE coach at Arizona Cardinals)
  • Gus Malzahn (QB/OC at Tulsa)
  • Joe Pendry (currently on staff)
  • Jeff Rutledge (QB coach at Arizona Cards)
  • Steve Sarkisian (QB coach at USC)
  • Dabo Swinney (WR coach at Clemson)
  • Scot Loeffler (QB coach at Michigan)

RollBamaRoll has some good commentary about the Applewhite issue. Also, a good quote from Bear that I had to post, "But it's still a coach's game. Make no mistake. You start at the top. If you don't have a good one at the top, you don't have a cut dog's chance. If you do, the rest falls into place. You have to have good assistants, and a lot of things, but first you have to have the chairman of the board."

It would be nice to name a new OC before national high school signing day. I know our recruit openings are filling up fast. We need to make sure we save that one for Julio.

UPDATE - BamaOnline is reporting that Scot Loeffler former QB coach at Michigan arrived in Tuscaloosa late Thursday night. He is expected to interview for a position. It is unclear exactly what that position is. He has coached such quarterbacks as Chad Henne and John Navarre. As a graduate assistant at UM he assisted in the development of a guy named Tom Brady, you may of heard of him.

The Tide hosts the Bulldogs of Miss State tomorrow at 2:00 PM CST. Even if you can't watch the game, wish'em well. We can't start out 0-4!
