    I agree. Kentucky could make any head coach's career end quickly. Kentucky wouldn't even be a good stepping stone to a better job.

    He just needs to be patient. His time is coming and it just may be before the end of this year. Tennessee would be a much better job. Sure would hate to see him go there. Hopefully, the Barn won't go after him. If Mullen left Mississippi State, would he go there? Coach Franklin at Vandy would be a very good hire for someone. I don't think even he would consider Kentucky.

    I'd rather he go get some HC experience and then come back.

    I didn't know that he was also a basketball coach. I thought "Kingpin Calipari" was their coach!

    Re: Kirby says "no thanks" to Kentucky.....

    This statement probably won't be popular, but I think Saban is the one who is in control of the defense, not Kirby.
    Sure, Kirby plays the DC role, but it is Saban's brain behind Kirby. Does anyone agree that Kirby Smart is overrated?
    I am basically saying that Kirby is Saban's puppet.

    Count me on your train as well, I think he has a handshake agreement that it's him and he has decided to not go anywhere. Of course I've been wrong before but this is simply my opinion as well.

    I'm going to miss this man when he does decide to leave us.
    Can't blame him. He can do a LOT better than UK. No football coach will ever succeed there. Coach Bryant was the best they'll get, and he left because of how far down football was on their importance meter.
    Honey Badger can take what the Tide gives him and like it.

    BB said it best.
    I'd like to see Kirby at a good school for a couple of years and let him become 'Seasoned'.
    THEN...
    Kirby might develop into a possible successor to Coach Saban.
    BTW: I like him a lot as a future coach.
    Kirby has learned from the best.

    Kirby is no one's puppet.

    Kirby does run Coach Saban's Defense, as Nuss runs the Offense that Coach Saban has in place.
    When you work for someone, you do what they generally want done...
    Only an idiot tries to do it all himself. Too much 'Hands On' doesn't develop the coordinators.
    IMO: Kirby Smart wouldn't have stayed at Alabama if he didn't have a degree of control
    over our Defensive alignment, and couldn't call plays...
    SABANATOR... Did you ever see Coach Smart looking over his shoulder at Coach Saban to see if Coach Saban approved?
    BTW... Your right. Your opinion isn't the popular one on this topic.

    Re: Kirby says "no thanks" to Kentucky.....

    Bama has proven to not be a good fit for novice head coaches. I feel like Kirby is a great defensive mind but being a head coach is a different animal. It would be nice to see a sample of him running his own program to tell.

    Coach Stallings was not great at his earlier jobs by his own admission but he had that "it" plus experience doing it himself.
