We talked in “CHANGE” HAS NEVER SOUNDED SO GOOD!” about how bama already has a staff in place. And I mentioned in another article, “New Man on Campus?” that Auburn recently started hiring its off field staff.
Well, it seems that bama is sweetening the pot. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/college-football/news/20130214/alabama-kevin-steele-kerry-stevenson.ap/?sct=uk_t2_a12
Bama and Nick Saban has hired back Kevin Steele.
Do you remember Kevin? No? Well you should.
He was the DC for Saban when he came to bama in 2007 and 2008. He left there and went to Clemson as the DC. Unfortunately for him, in 2012 when Clemson played West Virginia his defense gave up 7o odd points. After that he resigned his job.
He should be on the mind of every Auburn fan… because in 1995 he coached at the Carolina Panthers and got into a heated altercation with Kevin Greene. I say heated because Greene nearly used him to pick up the trash on the field. It was supposedly caught on film. But I am getting off topic… man the internet is SO amazing!!
But the person who got the biggest job is Kerry Stevenson, who is hired as the “director of player development”. What is Stevenson’s MOJO that gets him a position that is better than Steele’s and working for the arguably most prestigious man in college coaching since dare I say the name in the same sentence… da bahr? Well, Kerry has served as the head football coach at Vigor High School in Prichard, Ala for the last ten years.
Do you see a pattern here?
Bama and AU are getting guys who have ties to high schools.
I made the comment on that article that guys from the big ten are starting to pay attention… especially guys like Urban Meyer. Look for other teams to start doing this…
