    Would Saban take Sal Sunseri back?

    If Kirby Smart took an offer as a Head Coach. Do any of you think Saban would consider bringing Sal Sunseri back as DC? I know he had a rough season at 10rc, but they don't have the talent or the know how to run the 3-4 defense.

    I believe he would take him back, not so sure about hiring him as DC though.

    I don't think he'd become DC. He took the UT job because he didn't have a future as DC here. Of course, I guess things could have changed. Would you be happy with him at DC after his UT stint?

    I would love to have him back on the staff, but I see no openings. I for one think Kirby last name fits him - Smart. Why take a dead end job when you will be one of the highest paid assistants in college football.

    It depends on their relationship imo, much more so than the OC. So it depends on what Coach Saban sees in Sal and if he believes they could work together.

    No not happy as a DC. NO, no, no. UT was Horrible on defense regardless of talent, depth or any other excuse.

    I might be completely off base in my view, but I've always seen Sunseri as a fantastic position coach... not a coordinator.

    I would like him back as a position coach. Its hard to tell if he's really that bad as a DC. He's trying to run Saban's defense with a bunch of awful players at Tennessee.

    A coordinator fits his scheme to his talent. Did he do that at UT?

    So UT defense is all on the players?

    I think Saban would take him back, but NO WAY would he hire him for the DC job.
