I guess you can't say that this was a lateral move? I'm kind of dumbfounded by it? What is the thinking behind this besides his father? I figure if he stuck around long enough with Saban something better than IUPU would open up. This could really hurt his career if he's not successful.
Alabama wide receivers coach Curt Cignetti has been introduced as the new head football coach of Indiana University of Pennsylvania this morning, opening up a slot on Nick Saban’s coaching staff.
Cignetti has been at Bama for four seasons and has been serving as Alabama’s recruiting coordinator. Here’s guessing Saban can handle it, but losing one’s recruiting coordinator 10 days before signing day figures to be bumpy.
“Curt did an outstanding job for us in his four years at the University of Alabama and I know he will do the same at Indiana University of Pennsylvania,” Saban said. Cignetti’s father is IUP’s all-time winningest coach.
So let me get this straight — There’s an Indiana of Pennsylvania in addition to a California of Pennsylvania?
On another front, The Tuscaloosa News reports that UA linebackers coach Sal Sunseri is not expected to join old boss John Fox with the Denver Broncos.
