    I agree with you there... Shouldn't have had contact with kids he recruited at BAMA. Of course it seems a lot of rules / respect that existed 15-20 years ago dont exist today. It is rare to see coaches hang around for more than a couple of years... Not saying its good or bad but, the days of men like Coach Fuller and coach Rouzie who and coach under multiple head coaches are long gone...

    Napier was recruiting coordinator for FSU. That makes two new assistants that can recruit the state of Florida. Love that.

    I agree with the previous comment; Groh seemed to be making headway with our receivers, so he will be missed. On the other hand, I'm glad the NFL is starting to take notice of our talented staff. Hopefully he and Stoutland can influence the draft for a few of our players.

    This will be one of CNS's most challenging years. Tremendous turnover on a proven offensive line and a secondary which needs to be retooled the loss of Milner and Foster. The new assistants will also have to learn the play book (Nussmeier will be new to Napier). Saban is the man to do it though

    Pruitt steals a Bama recruit away to FSU on his way out the door.
    Bama steals the FSU recruiting coordinator on his way in the door.

    Seems fair to me.

    Up to this point every hire we have made replacing a position coach has went smoothly. I remember when we lost Davis to TX only to get coach Rumph who has did a fabulous job. We lose Pendry and here comes Stoutland who know gets promoted to the NFL. I feel good as long as Saban is the one pulling the strings.

    Sad to see Mike Groh leave. During his tenure, he has been a tremendous asset to the Tide. Wish him the best of luck at da Bears.

    There’s an old story about the HOF baseball player, Rogers Hornsby. An umpire once told a rookie pitcher who was complaining about balls and strikes, "Son, when you pitch a strike, Mr. Hornsbywill let you know it.”
    That’s how I feel about hiring new assistant coaches. We'll know if they’re really good. Coach Saban lets us know by hiring them.

    I get what you're saying, but our WR corps has flourished beyond our wildest dreams under Coach Groh, which raises the question--how good a WR coach is Napier?
    I may disagree with you, but I'm pretty sure you're not Hitler.

    Coach Saban makes mistakes, too. Just look at Major Applewhite.

    True but this isn't that situation. I love Groh but Napier is a great addition.
