    Mack Brown: Alabama 'Ahead of All of Us' in Preparing for NCAA Deregulation

    Link

    "Alabama is ahead of all of us with the number of personnel they've hired, and that's something that everybody's looking very closely at," Brown said in a press conference Thursday.


    Brown said the Longhorns have posted a position for a director of player personnel that would oversee recruiting. Alabama hired former defensive coordinator Kevin Steele as its director of player personnel earlier this month, and also hired former Vigor High coach Kerry Stevenson as director of player development.

    With all their money, and LHN, they still need to whine, and make excuses.

    I love that Saban quickly jumped to exploit the new rules.

    The full statement from Brown:

    I can't blame Alabama for doing what they needed to do to be successful. And the thing you've got to look at if you're looking at college football is, can everybody do that and is that fair. And it's fair for Alabama because they have made it work for them, so I would not be critical of them at all. What I think, the patterns I see in my past in this job, is when there were strength coaches that were doing the same thing and everybody had ten strength coaches and they had everyone for that position. The NCAA realized it, and they cut them to five. I think what we'll see in a year is that the analyst/quality control positions will be cut to a certain number. I think that we will see that the positions that you have across the board will be cut. So you'll have nine assistant coaches and the head coach. Right now, we are restricted to four graduate assistants. There is no restriction on quality control. I think that you'll see a restriction coming. I'm sure that will be by the presidents and the athletic directors. I personally would elect to see the quality control guys be able to coach, because if they are coaches, it's hard to monitor who is and who is not, so let them coach, and I would like to see that. And then I think you'll see that they will have a number of 20 or less that can work with football. In general, I think you'll let them see all those guys recruit, but I don't think that we will have unlimited numbers this time next year.

    When you add the employees of the Longhorn Network as recruiting staff, I'll bet that the shorthorns exceed our personnel count substantially.

    An astute observation. If I remember the reason given for the LHN was $$$ but everyone knew it was supposed to be a recruiting tool.

    I really don't bear any ill toward TX for the LHN. I wish we had the same. Not just TX but most teams are trying to figure out what Bama is doing.

    No short cuts, stick to basics/fundamentals, the right kind of kids recruited, and really smart coaching from preparation.

    They are looking for that magic bullet but it really is a complex jigsaw puzzle & when one piece is missing it don't look right.

    Most know I'm not a fan of the revenue sharing or the SEC as a whole, but it is what it is.

    The press release went out to everybody at the same time. Are we to believe CNS was the only one to act upon it making him that much smarter than the entire football coaching world? Maybe Mac is hoping to develop Obama-ball type coaching strategies for lazy coaches.
