It is starting to look more like Bill O’Brien will not be retained at Alabama after the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
His contract as offensive coordinator expires after Feb. 28, 2023. After two seasons under Nick Saban, the 71-year-old head coach appears to be content with letting O’Brien’s contract run out and parting ways mutually. We have seen several reports from NFL insiders, citing sources that O’Brien returns to the pros. Most have the 53-year-old reuniting with Bill Belichick in New England.
No matter where O’Brien goes, Alabama fans want to know who will be the replacement. After discussing the conversation with a few credible sources, here are some names — that in my opinion — getting consideration to serve as offensive coordinator for the Crimson Tide next season.
-Joe Brady, QB coach for Buffalo Bills
-Garrett Riley, OC for TCU Horned Frogs
Summary: Joe Brady and Garrett Riley are the most attractive names to replace O’Brien as offensive coordinator.
