Regardless of him having to undergo hip surgery and battle through the Coronavirus, the window to capture as many national championships as possible remains open for Nick Saban at the University of Alabama.

After securing his seventh national title in 2020, he is back to work in trying to assemble an offensive staff.

While the move of Bill O’Brien for offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach is official, we wait on the press release that involves Doug Marrone as offensive line coach.

In the anticipation to have spring practice, Saban is in no hurry to finalize his roster of assistant coaches. He wants to make the right moves and bring the appropriate names into the program to continue success.

With two vacancies left to fill — running backs coach and tight ends coach/special teams coordinator — respectable sources have confirmed with yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine on two home run names that have emerged.
