.....or will he be satisfied being Nick Saban's version of Mickey Andrews?

Or waiting for Saban to retire to take charge of the juggernaut? He's allowed to be picky with his first choice of schools.

He'll get tired of waiting and take some HC job in the SEC. My guess is it'll happen before Saban gets ready to leave, which may be a while depending on his motivation.That's how I see it going down at least, but make no mistakes about it...he hasn't been overly active in moving on.

Why would you though? We can make assumptions of him not wanting to leave his shadow or progress in his career, but when you're this successful and make this kind of money at a young age, what's the rush? He's only 37, so obviously he has many years left to prove his worth as a Head Coach. Calling plays for the nation's best program and best defensive unit year in and year out, well that's a job worth taking advantage of until something big comes along.

Right at a million dollars a year and job security.  Where is Gene Chizik today?  It is a rough and tumble profession and you have to step out in the right direction or you'll fall right under the wheels of the bus.

I don't think he's as hot a commodity as fans seem to think. There were some big jobs open this off-season and apparently nobody bothered to call him.


I'll go with the idea that any coordinators that have 3 NC rings, no matter their participation in preparation, will be a hot commodity. But what do I know, guess I'm just a homer.

I have no doubt that he's received calls about being a coordinator. But y'all used to claim he was waiting for bigger jobs to come open. The "bigness" of the jobs that have come open the past couple years has been pretty big. He hasn't gotten any of them. Thus I'm forced to conclude that either he just doesn't want to be a HC, or those programs haven't offered him a job. It's a logical conclusion.


Which jobs you eluding to? Maybe it's my Bama eyes again but I'm glad he didn't move on to Tennessee or Auburn, and realistically...how "big" are they right now? There are big jobs and then there are, "Is this the right situation for me?". Quite honestly I didn't see a fit for him in any of the job openings, maybe Arkansas but why would he want to play against Bama every year? I call that being realistic too though haha.

By your logic, teams should be lining up for Gene Chizik.

Its convenient being a D coordinator when your given the best highschool recruits year in and year out and have Saban as the HC. No doubt he's learning a lot from Saban tho

It is your Bama eyes. The offers simply don't get any better than UT, Auburn or Arkansas. If he didn't want any of those because he would have had to play Bama every year then I doubt anybody would really want him, because if you're not driven to compete with the best, then why should anybody hire you?

I don't think anybody except Auburn had serious talks with him though. Apparently nobody at Wisconsin or Texas Tech or any of the other BCS programs showed interest either.


Well then if it's my Bama eyes, it's your Georgia eyes. You obviously have posted a little jilted since he turned down UGA, that's alright though...we get that. Maybe you should consider him to be "spoiled" or "snobby" then? Why move on from Bama when it's realistically the job he could ultimately have? None of those jobs compare to it naturally, you know it...I know it.

Auburn is a dumpster fire with idiots running the show, Tennessee the same but more of a chance to rebound. Arkansas is Arkansas, a solid job but too tall of a task. Personally it doesn't hurt my feelings at all if he's not a "hot commodity". Means more success here at Bama for us fans, but the fact his name comes up in every head coach opening leaves me to believe you're just as biased on this topic as I am.

I aprecciate that you are trying to rain on the Bama parade.
I just don't have the strength to join you.

yeah he had 2 basically, and 1 as a head coach, so really hes a hotter commodity than smart. Do I believe you're wrong? no, do I believe your logic is shitty? yes.

if you honestly believe auburn will not rebound within the next two years you are more of a homer than I thought. That or you just haven't been paying attention...

To even bring up Gene Chizik, after his dumpster fire of a season...compared to a coordinator who hasn't even had his shot...

Yeah, both of you have shittier logic.
