    Greg Brown?

    Anyone know what CNS sees in this guy? I trust Nick to know what he's doing, but Brown's record the last two years doesn't instill much confidence in me. Am I missing something?

    Thankfully he hasn't only been a coach for 2 years. He's had another 28 years of his career and has had success throughout large portions of it.

    Colorado is terrible can't blame him for that fact.

    New defensive backs coach. Scroll down there's a thread about his hiring.

    Re: Greg Brown?

    I am not too worried about it. His track record is similar to what Joe Pendry had prior to coming to Bama - ie bouncing between NFL and College with sporadic stints of winning. But I think we can all thank Joe Pendry for laying the foundation of our current OL. Hopefully, Brown will be similar. The only thing I do question is his ability to recruit due to his lack of familiarity with the region and frankly his age, being a position coach, he will have some recruiting responsibilities.

    Something tells me that CNS was opting for some stability on his staff and not someone not necessarily looking for advancement within the staff. But this hire seems somewhat out of the mold of what we normally expect with Saban hires. Hopefully he will relate well with the players. But maybe there is already a GA on the staff that Saban expects to take Pruitt's role when he is ready and Brown is bridging the gap until that person is ready. I dont know.

    I'm not worried at all. When is the last time we said "CNS sure can't hire any decent coaches"???

    Yes, and they're pretty important. The first is that he isn't being hired to be Alabama's DC, which is the position he held a Colorado.

    Second is that Alabama is not Colorado.

    Coach hired him to "coach-up" SAFTIES and nothing else is my bet. That being the case it's a beyond excellent hire.

    Exactly. DB is a shared duty when Saban is on the field. That was one thing which made FSU's hire of Pruitt so puzzling...

    How much do you think his recruiting abilities played into that?
