I liked Nussmeier's playcalling more than McElwain so I hate to see him leave.  However, Saban now has an unique opportunity to find the perfect coach for a brand new QB.  

It's time to think outside of the box.

Is Kiffin the favorite for Bama's new OC?

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.
Reports are that Kiffin is interviewing for the position today; Cecil Hurt tweeted that a hire is expected in 48 hours.

Not exactly sold on Kiffin, even less sold on Rich Neuheisel, whose name has also come up.

Even less on Neuheisel? Less than Kiffin? Well hell Neuheisel is a great QB coach, both are suspect play callers I would have to say.

I guess we'll have to see, but like I said in the other thread I trust Saban's judgement.

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

don't be, he's an expert at getting institutions into a lot of trouble.

The SEC's problem with Alabama today is the Tide doesn't need to cheat anymore.

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.

Sounds like the key to success to me. I loved watching both of them this year. They're gonna keep getting better, imo.

The fairly quick timing suggests that he did.
