Two recently fired NFL head coaches are under consideration for a job where they’re sure to win a lot more.

Alabama head coach Nick Saban is considering hiring former Jets coach Adam Gase or former Texans coach Bill O’Brien as the Crimson Tide’s next offensive coordinator, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports.

Alabama needs a new offensive coordinator after Steve Sarkisian left to take the head-coaching job at Texas.

Gase has previously worked for Saban on his LSU staff. O’Brien spent five years on the Patriots’ coaching staff and would likely come recommended by Saban’s good friend Bill Belichick.

Both O’Brien and Gase would like to find a place where they can rehabilitate their images after disappointing performances in 2020. Alabama, which recruits more talent than any other college football program, is a place where they know they can be involved in a winning program.

  1. LOL. Please hire O’Brien. CFB is tired of watching Alabama win all the time, and hiring O’Brien (the king of culture) will put a swift end to that.

  2. O’Brien would be the more exciting choice… his resume and connection with winning staffs…
    Gase hasn’t done anything impressive that I’ve heard of and he has miserably failed 2 HC jobs..

  3. Would love to see Saban and BOB get into sideline arguments. Please make this happen.

  4. Definitely their best move. The Saban stimulus package is legendary. People actually think Sark and Kiffin can coach now after being on it.

    It’s truly crazy but it’s going to be great entertainment watching Longhorn fans realize Sark is still the same guy who was only a few games over .500 at USC and Washington. His best season as a head coach was worse than the one that just got Herman fired.

  6. Amazes me, we clamor for diversity and giving folks a chance. Don’t have a bias against either of these guys, but to applaud it and question other less profile hires is hypocritical. Hold my beer
