    Be Honest-After Shula Was Fired/Before Coach S Was Hired, Who Did You Want As Coach?

    I'll be honest. I was hoping to get Spurrier.

    I'm glad a million times over now that we didn't, but my initial choice after Coach Shula's firing was Spurrier.

    I'll qualify my statement by saying, at that time, I didn't think we had a chance to get Coach Saban.
    Mal surprised me with his ruthless pursuit in this case, and it completely changed his legacy in a big big big way.

    Anybody else whose initial choice wasn't Coach Saban?

    P.S> This is after Rich Rod was "hired" and changed his mind....

    I was hoping they kept Shula.

    I didn't know enough about who's who in the coaching world to have much of an opinion. I was actually glad Rich Rod backed out because from what I knew of his offensive style I didn't think he was a good fit.

    I felt the absolute same as you Alasippi. I was hoping for Spurrier. If you recall, there were many rumors that he was a serious candidate. I remember some photoshop artists showing Spurrier wearing a hounds tooth cap..LOL!
    Glaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad we got Saban!!!!!!

    I have said this before, but I was wanting Jimbo Fisher and was upset that we didn't go after him before he went to FSU. I thought getting coach Saban was a pipe dream. Glad I wasn't in charge.

    Saban.

    And I never wavered.
    I'll always look back as I walk away
    This memory will last for eternity
    And all of our tears will be lost in the rain
    Til I find my way back to your arms again
    But until that day you know you are
    The queen of my heart
