    Hate this; but figured it was coming when he took the job in Phoenix. He was valuable to Coach Saban as more than just a color analyst for our football team. He prepared scouting reports as well.

    I thought he was a massive upgrade as a color analyst over what we had in my lifetime. He stepped down from the Senior Bowl earlier this year and now this jig...to focus on his spring league GM job. I think he may have ticked somebody off because I wouldn't leave those positions to head up a job for a league that may not last one season.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Wow, moving to a minor league job. Huh.

    Things that make you go, "Hmmmm…"

    Leaves the Senior Bowl in his hometown after several years in the chair, in a "mutual parting of the ways."

    Leaves one of the best color announcing jobs in the country, and in the process leaves Saban, who he's known since he was an analyst for the Browns while Saban was there.

    Packs up to move to Phoenix for a minor league job.

    That's a lot of major life change in a short period of time. Hope everything's OK.
    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Agree that this is a head-scratcher. I really liked listening to Phil and enjoyed his analytical approach to each game. He seemed to me like he had firmly become a part of the university. It could be similar to the Joe Pendry situation— Maybe the opportunity was just too good to pass up

    He was the most knowledgeable color analyst, and I have been listening since '58.

    The best color commentator Iíve ever heard. This is a huge blow to the radio broadcast, imo. So much knowledge of the game and worked well well Eli Gold.

    Will be interesting to see who they look to bring on board. I think Jay Barker definitely has the radio experience and is a Bama man. IDK.
