Well after the unthinkable happened today I started to think whom is next.
Phil Parker (Iowa DC) played and coached for Saban. Coached DB's for 25 years.
Derek Mason (Stanford DC) NFL experience. Looks like he may get the Vandy HC job.
Harlan Barnett (Michigan State DB coach) Jimbo gave Pruitt a shot this could be the same scenario. He has learned from Dantonio who coached under Saban. Coached at LSU in 2003 with Jimbo under Saban.
Kerry Cooks (Notre Dame Secondary coach and co DC) heavy secondary coaching experience and recruits TX for Notre Dame.
Promote within and give Kelly the DC job and then hire a DB coach.
Corey Raymond ( LSU DB coach) guy is working Florida as a recruiter.
Who can we add to this list? I think a connection to the Saban's style defense will be a priority. We know Jimbo wants a DC with DB coaching experience. Recruiting is always important.
