Nick Saban has a fresh start as he’s parted ways with both of his coordinators.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Low reported Tuesday morning about the New England Patriots returning Bill O’Brien to the National Football League as its offensive coordinator.

After two seasons at the University of Alabama, O’Brien returns to a familiar setting. 

He helped the Crimson Tide average 40 points per game, win a Southeastern Conference Championship in 2021, and crown Bryce Young as the first Tide quarterback to capture a Heisman Memorial Trophy. Alabama fans want someone more creative and innovative, but who will Coach Saban choose to replace O’Brien? Sources have shared with Touchdown Alabama Magazine four candidates the Tide has targeted, including one that has risen as a primary target.

Jeff Lebby, Joe Brady, Brian Johnson, and Dan Mullen are the names considered.
