The Alabama coaching search has narrowed to a handful of coaches with a shot at the job.
Jones was the last coach to be fired.
The Crimson Tide are looking for an interim head coach, and they have narrowed down to a trio of candidates.
Alabama is looking for a new defensive coordinator, a new offensive coordinator, and a new quarterback.
Here are five questions about Alabama’s current offensive coaching search:1.
Will the Crimson Tide hire a defensive coordinator?
The recruiting class has been a huge success for Alabama.
Alabama has signed the likes of Justin Worley, John Ross, and DeMarcus Walker.
They have the talent to compete for a national championship.
But they have a few holes to fill.
According to 247Sports, the Crimson Beets’ recruitment class is ranked No. 5 in the country.
That means Alabama can only recruit from the top 100 in the nation.
They have a number of high-profile recruits who could be looking to commit to the Crimson Bears.
They also have a handful more high-school recruits who might have interest in committing to Alabama.
While the recruiting class is a huge plus for Alabama, it could be a bit of a struggle to fill a coaching vacancy at this time.
Who will be Alabama’s starting quarterback?
Nick Saban has been known to get creative with quarterbacks.
He will not have to do so again.
He may not have the best quarterback in the world, but he will still have the most talent on the team.
This year, he has one of the top passers in the class.
If he stays healthy, the quarterback could be one of Alabama’s top players for years to come.3.
Will Alabama be searching for a quarterback?
Alabama has a number in the 2018 class, and it has a few high-level players.
But the 2017 class was one of its weakest.
That could be changing this year.
The Crimson Tide has several quarterbacks who could wind up as high-end prospects.
One of the names on the radar is Connor Cook, who played for Alabama in 2016.
Cook has the ability to be an elite quarterback, and he will also be a great fit at the quarterback position.
Will Florida State be searching?
The Seminoles are not looking to hire a head coach to replace Joe Paterno, but the search for a head coaching job is not over yet.
Florida State is the only program in the ACC with a winning record since Jimbo Fisher left to become the head coach of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Florida State’s coaching search is not as active as Alabama’s, but it is still very active.
Florida will also continue to recruit and compete with other schools to recruit players in 2018.
Who is the biggest reason Alabama’s offense is still so good?
Alabama is one of college football’s top offenses, but that could be hurting their offense in 2018 and 2019.
Coach Jones has a reputation as one of Division I’s elite quarterbacks.
His passing ability is unmatched.
But it is not enough to be a top-tier quarterback.
Alabama needs to find another quarterback who can be a consistent threat to throw for 4,000 yards, 100 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions.
