Much speculation is happening as to whether Bill O’Brien will remain at Alabama after this season.
His name has been linked to a couple of head coaching vacancies, including Nebraska and Arizona State.
O’Brien is coordinating Alabama’s offense for a second season. He helped the Crimson Tide to a Southeastern Conference Championship, College Football Playoff appearance, and crowning a Heisman Trophy winner. One offensive coordinator has stayed with Nick Saban longer than two to three years in Tuscaloosa. Jim McElwain assisted Alabama to a pair of BCS National Championships in 2009 and 2011. McElwain was in Tuscaloosa for four years, but what will be O’Brien’s move going forward?
On Wednesday, Stephen Smith of Touchdown Alabama Magazine discussed O’Brien via In My Own Words.
Smith provided his candidates to possibly replace O’Brien if he leaves for a head coaching job. Alabama fans can watch In My Own Words every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6:00 p.m. CT on TDA’s YouTube channel.
