That's not because of Steele...it's because of Baylor being Baylor. We have had Steele on the field before, and he did just fine. I don't care if he is on the field or not, I just want him to be able to recruit, which he will be able to. Great recruiter, and that's the last thing rivals of Bama want to see...Bama get another lockdown recruiter.
Alabama — winners of three of the last four BCS championships — in on the verge of hiring its second ex-head coach in a week to serve on Nick Saban’s staff. CBSSports.com’s Jeremy Fowler reports that ex-Florida International coach Mario Cristobal will be taking over the Tide’s offensive line:
Cristobal served as the head coach at Florida International from 2007 through 2012. This past season he was on Al Golden’s Miami staff as tight ends coach and assistant head coach.
Cristobal will replace Jeff Stoutland who departed Alabama to join Chip Kelly’s new staff with the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles.
Just last week, Alabama added former Baylor head coach Kevin Steele to its staff as the director of player personnel. Steele will head up Saban’s recruiting efforts, but he will not have an on-field coaching role in Tuscaloosa.
