    Re: "Gus Malzahn hires Ellis Johnson as defensive coordinator"

    I heard a caller on Finebaum yesterday that phoned in to rip EJ..stated he had been following USM football for 35 years and he was, without a doubt, the worse head coach he had ever seen. He said EJ admitted the play got worse as the year went along. I know there is a night and day difference between a coordinator and a HC...maybe he's lost his mojo. Player attrition or not, from 12-2 to 0-12 is a nightmare.

    I dislike Johnson more than any other UA coach I can think of, save maybe for Gottfried

    On the balance, he did pretty well at MSU and USCe. Susceptible to the run at times but tough and quick to the football typically.

    I feel the same way. I'm a little curious about the amount of praise he receives from some and the amount of hate he receives from the other. I knew him 20 years ago in his prime. Those may have been his best days.

    I think it is a good hire for AU. They get a recognizable name for their DC, someone who knows the state of Alabama, and someone thatthey wont have to worry about someone else trying to steal. Good hire for AU. But not a hire that would have Bama fans worrying.

    Ellis Johnson was one of those high-profile unemployed guys. Like Gene Chizik.

    The problem with that statement is that it's the same period as when I was at UA. Sad times on the field.

    The only thing he did right was dial-up a blitz on the next-to-last play in regulation during the regular season game at Fla.

    Why didn't Mahzahn hire Chizik as his DC? Now that would have been funny.

    If you thought *U's tackling was bad 2009-2012, wait until Ellis and Cheese start teaching those boys how to wrap up.

    Ellis Johnson? Yep, Pat Dye is still in the mix.

    Yeah it would.

    Wonder for how long Chizic get's his monthly checks and does he have to send them proof he's looking for a job
