    I have connection to someone that covers Alabama Football. It's a name pretty much everyone on Tide Fans knows. He told me Sal will never be DC at Alabama as long as CNS is our head coach. He said CNS views Sal as an excellent position coach and recruiter. He went on to say that Sal knew this, Dooley offered him the DC coordinator position at Tennessee and a raise so Sal took it.

    Tennessee is #109 in total defense. It doesn't really matter that it's his 1st season. He will either have to prove himself at a smaller school or go back to position coach, which probably pays as much as a tenured Professor

    He had NO talent, so the scheme was irrelevant I for one think Sal would make an awesome Hire as DC, He is a proven winner, and anyone that was labeled assistant head coach by saban , has to have the credentials necessary to be a good coordinator. He is also familiar with the system, the players, and would make for an easy transition. I for one think it makes total sense.

    If he only goes as position coach somewhere can he afford the pay cut? It might be time for a nice two year vacation. That's if he had a three year contract.

    It's not going to happen at Alabama under CNS. He may well end up back at Alabama as a position coach, but it won't be as DC. It has nothing to do with Sal's results as DC at UT. Sal was never going to be DC at Alabama under CNS.

    I think he should come back in and take the same position he had when he left...

    Re: Would Saban take Sal Sunseri back?

    Sunseri was successful as a position coach coaching one of the greatest linebacking corps in college football history. He has been a miserable failure as a coordinator at UT, and not just because of the lack of talent. They have dropped off in every defensive category. He cost them many games this season.

    My understanding is that his 3 year deal is guaranteed regardless of landing another job. Dooley and Sunseri both get all their money. Everyone else will get buy outs based on their next salary.

    Re: Would Saban take Sal Sunseri back?

    Could he possibly end up at the barn as LB's coach?
    What kind of fit would that be for their current players and prospects?

    Correct, and he was told that...

    I'm not saying I want him as DC, but it's hard for me to hold Tennessee completely against him.
