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

    I'm not a fan of firing coaches. So I was hoping they gave Mike more time to get it right. At the time, I didn't know as much about the inner workings of his program that I do now, although I was on campus during his entire tenure

    I felt for Shula in a way also but I think the job was just too big for his experience level.

    In order I was hoping for: 1) Saban
    2) Spurrier
    3) Rich Rod

    .....so glad things worked out.

    He was my choice, too. Of the non-Saban candidates, I think he's done the most with what he's had to work with since then. Spurrier's pretty close, though.

    That was my choice as well. I thought we had no shot at getting Saban.

    Good question.

    I think after DuBose, Frann, Price and Shula, I had almost given up, and also given up on Coach Moore being able to make a good hire

    Paul Johnson here as well. Thought he would have Georgia Tech better than they are and definitely happy my choice at the time didn't go through.

    Well thank goodness Mal came through!! He played for Coach Bryant who always said, "Win the game in the fourth quarter".

    Mal indeed did.
