    I Believe Alabama Needs a New AD

    I'm no CMM worshipper, but acting as if he's easily replaceable is a bit short-sighted, imo. Good ADs are like good FB coaches - there are very few.

    Coach Moore gets to hang his hat in the Saban hire, and he lucked out on that when RichRod pulled his stunt.

    I don't often agree with the OP on a lot of things, but I am definitely no CMM worshiper like I'm seeing here

    I'm not calling for his firing, but I'm not a huge fan, either. Maybe wish him a nice retirement when his contract is up.

    I could understand someone saying this, but saying to fire the man is a little crazy to me. If all he ever did in his tenure was hire CNS, that would be enough for me.

    If he is a "Good AD" then why are BOTH our Basketball Programs in their current state???

    TGP -

    I agree that both men's and women's basketball are under-achieving. I'm not so sure, however, that a change in the AD's office would fix that.

    You've advocated firing Mal Moore. That's a pretty radical position. But I respect your tenure here, and your previous posts, so I'm willing to listen. Please tell us:

    1. What, specifically, is wrong with the current administration, especially given 4 NCs and a near miss on a fifth in the immediately preceding year,

    2. Who, specifically, you would suggest starting over with, and

    3. Why you believe the specifically named person would do a better overall job than the incumbent, Mal Moore.

    It's one thing to advocate a change in a fit of private piqué. It's entirely another to act on the short-term emotion and live with the long-term consequences.

    A publicly-stated position like this, from a person of your stature, begs more than a little explanation.

    Its not like he is not trying. Its hard to get to the top. Why do the vast majority of schools not have one program like our football program? We won 4 national championships last year. How many would we have to win for him to be considered a "good AD?"

    OK, so we can CMM- who do YOU hire to replace him?

    Look- no one is more disappointed in where the basketball program now resides. There are many reasons for that. I will give Mal Moore credit for a couple of things- he went out and hired what was considered to be one of the best coaches available in Anthony Grant. Spent decent money doing it as well. Then built him a state of the art practice facility. That is pretty good support from a "football" guy. Showing up at more games would be good but probably will not happen. I would blame him for the basketball team's mediocre to bad performance.
