Going forward, who will be CNS? Coach Nick Saban, or Coach Nick Sheridan? Acronym confusion.

It wouldn't be so much a problem, except Nick Saban is hanging around. In fact, some of the players say he's actually still coaching. 😂 And I totally believe that.

If we had a coach come in who was nicknamed "Bear" would anyone consider calling him "The Bear"?

I don't think so.

At Bama, there will only ever be one "CNS."

CNSTY - CNS The Younger for Sheridan
CCNS - Current CNS
FCNS - Former CNS

This could get fun.

But looking for a short acronym. You want FCNS for Saban. I mean, he was CNS for 17 years. Be kinda hard to change that.
So adding an extra key click is difficult? We could just say, "Saban". Honestly, we would only be speaking about Saban in a "reminiscing" sort of thread or post, or in a post where you refer to something he said on College Game Day. If you refer to the "College Game Day" thread people hardly watch it or dislike it.

If we use CNS for Coach Sheridan it would probably in context of Play calling or offensive performance. Saban has nothing to with either of those duties.

There is no "Coach Nick Saban" there is "Former Coach Nick Saban" and ESPN Analyst Nick Saban.
He will always be Coach, Kiffin still calls him Coach, I heard an interview on Atlanta radio with Kevin Steele, and he referred to Nick as simply Coach.

Without reading other comments, CNS will ALWAYS belong to the GOAT in my thinking. I guess I'll refer to the other one as Sheridan or NS.

All coaches refer to each other that way. I haven't coached in 6 years and other coaches still call me coach when I walk down the hall at school.
Well yeah, but that wasn’t the point. All those guys refer to him simply as Coach when speaking about him to others. As if there is only one. So why would he stop being Coach. I bet other coaches don’t refer to you as Coach when speaking to others about you.
