I'm oddly ambivalent.

His playcalling was very erratic at times--he pretty much cost us the A&M game last year when he abandoned the running game with 1st and goal from the 4.  But he still got great play out of AJ.

We'll see who Saban comes up with.  Too bad Petrino's off the table now.. ;)

I think many Alabama fans are not particularly opposed to losing Nuss.

Is Kiffin the favorite for Bama's new OC?

He was in Tuscaloosa ~3 weeks ago, which is why people think he might be in the mix.

I've never been sold on him as an OC, though.  He was a great QB coach, but the talent he had could make anyone look good.  See Nussmeier for the last two years as an example.

No favorites yet. As a QB coach it's tough to see him go, as an OC I'm not too upset, but he was really good. I think compared to McElwain I was more impressed with the timing of play calls. The anticipation of blitzs with screen passes and the timing of play actions, McElwain was just more consistent.

I wish him the best of luck, excited to see what kind of offense Alabama goes forward with.

kiffin spent a few days in t-town looking at film etc. in an 'advisory role'.... i think nussmeier was quoted as saying it's good to get outside opinions. some bama fans on the board i read that on were a little nervous about why Saban would have someone in like that. they were wondering if maybe nuss wasn't leaving. that was before the bowl game. that's the only thing i have heard.

I'm okay with Nuss moving on. He had his moments, but I wasn't overly impressed with his play calling.

I would be pretty excited about Neuheisel, no doubt. Would fill in the QB coach vacancy very well.

Totally okay with Nuss leaving, never forgave him for the A&M game last year (or 2 depending on how you look at it). He never utilized all the talent we had, his play calling was very questionable and maybe I'm old school but when the run game is working you stick with it, he tried to get a little too cute. Also, considering Kiffin came in to consult before the bowl game this makes me wonder if Nuss was either 1. on the hot seat or 2. Nuss was already looking for other positions and he alerted Saban. Personally, I'm excited about a new OC. Hopefully whomever it is can bring a fresh look to an offense that has quickly become predictable despite the talent we have.

My favorite candidates? The guy who gives Henry plenty of touches and Howard plenty of targets next year.
