Saban weighs in on Cochran leaving.

“Scott did a really good job for us here and was a big part of our success, but he was looking for a new career path,” Saban told ESPN. “He wanted to get on to the field coaching and would like one day, I think, to be a head coach. We didn’t really have anything here to offer him along those lines, and Georgia did. I understand him wanting to take on that path.”

Is it bad? Yes. Is it devastating? Absolutely not. There are great S&C coaches who will love to come to Bama. I think Saban not putting up much of a fight is telling - I have been saying over the past few years that the injury bug could very well be from the S&C program not evolving. I am appreciative for Cochran's work at Bama, but he can be replaced.
When did the injury bug start to biting at Bama?  Was it about the time that Kirby left for UGA?  Or before?

CNS knows more about coaching positions than anyone. He has brought many coaches along their path. I just wonder who will take Cochran's place for our recruits during their down time time here before A-Day. RTR!

You are right about this. There was so many torn ACL's and MCL's every year I don't know the cause but I know it needs to be fixed. RTR!

Yep. Great motivator.  Maybe not great with Xs and Os.   


You have to wonder if Kirby sees things differently, of if he just wanted to get CSC out of Bama.   Tinfoil Hat

I can see him as a special teams coach.  Also, many people working under him as S&C coach.

What is the word on who CNS is talking to for this position? I wonder about the guy from Oregon. RTR!

If we match up the bits of information we have gotten lately, perhaps Scott Cochran expected to get the position given to Butch Jones.

I don't see this as a negative beyond possible short-term hiccups with the translation.  The players will have to get used to the new guy, but I'm sure there are plenty assistant S&C guys sticking around to help out with that.  Cochran had become more of celebrity than most S&C coaches around the country, but that doesn't mean there aren't plenty others out there just as good as him.

Fresh ideas are often needed to make progress.

I'm okay with it.  UGA got a short-term PR win, but they are getting a rah-rah guy for an on-field coach.  Will he be a recruiter??  What experience does he have with coaching special teams?

I'm afraid special-teams coaches have a short life.  Theirs is a thankless job.

Well the new ideas brought in will be good. CSC was identified because he was at Alabama if anywhere else would he have had such popularity? RTR!

From what I hear, that's a home run hire.
