Dolphins | Saban to accept Alabama coaching job
Tue, 2 Jan 2007 14:15:00 -0800

Chris Mortensen, of ESPN, reports Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban will accept the job as the head coach of the University of Alabama football team, according to a team source. Saban has been quoted as saying he is "really struggling" with the decision.
how can chris reports that saban will accept the job if saban himself is struggling with his decision
good question, but oviously he knows somthing the rest of us don't ( even Saben)

Mortenson is by far the worst person at reporting news. He reports every rumor as if it is truth. He is worst than the guy on NFL network (Adam Shefter?). Saban doesn't know what he is going to do but he is definitely consisdering it more than I thought he would. We will all know by tomorrow though.

He said he liked how Yeremiah Bell made plays in the secondary so I think its clear he will be a starter next year.

So we are looking at OL depth (LT/OG), edge rusher (DE/OLB), playmaker in the secondary (CB/S), and young DL (DT).

All I know is I hope we can get Adalius Thomas in Miami.

Also some OL to keep an eye on are Roman Oben and Kris Dielman, both are former lineman for Hudson Houck. Eric Steinbeck is another guard I would love to get, he will be expensive though.
Man, how sick would our D be if we signed Adalius Thomas, Drafted Alan Branch with our first round pick, and also drafted a top corner like Fred Bennett, Daymeion Hughes, or Josh Wilson in the second round. Man, I am getting excited and hyped up just thinking about it!

My opinions of recent events.

Nick is gone, and I hope the door hits him on the way out. Lying scumbag. Even if he didnt take the job I would like to see him gone anyways.


Some canidates:
Ron Rivera - D.C. of the Bears, great coach and could be interesting.

Cameron - O.C. of the S.D. chargers, a good offensive coach and works well with Houck

Bobby Patrino (sp) - Louisville head coach, very offensive minded. Add him and Capers together and you have a good combo.

O.C. Canidates
I wouldnt mind giving a chance with Mike Shula as an O.C. He is a good offensive minded coach and would be a good choice to fill in that position. Specially if we signed Ron Rivera.

For draft ideas the following are my choices personally.
If Jarrett or Brohm are there then I take either one of them. Both I think will be studs in the NFL. Barring that take the best player available as long as it isnt a DE, RT or a RB. Every other position on this team can use an upgrade.

I want either a LT or an OG/C in the draft. Perhaps both in the draft if we can swipe something like Beekman. I would rather snag a CB/S in FA honestly then through the draft, we have alot of young players in the secondary. We need depth there.

Now if we get Rivera it might help us getting Adalius Thomas well.

Do you think that the Dolphins will consider Jim Bates as the next coach?

Do you guys think that a new coach will affect us as much on draft day? Like maybe now there is a better chance that we take a QB? I hope not.

You may have a shot at Whisenhunt even if Cowher doesn't come back. He's already talking with Atlanta and Arizona.

I think the Steelers HC next year will be Ron Rivera or Kirk Ferentz.

This really changes a lot. I really hope we keep the defensive scheme the same as it is now. Offense can change, it actually needs to change, but I just hope the new coach is smart enough to realize he already has a QB.

I was thinking the same thing, we just changed our defense when we hired Saban and now if we change it again we'll be behind and our defense is already pretty old.

Nope. Bates isn't going to coach here after getting stuffed (he campaigned for 4 hours to get the job after Wanny left)...

Ron Rivera would be the only choice I wonder consider, I think Wayne would be hestiant to hire another college coach...

While I don't think Rivera is going to be a serious candidate in Miami, it would be a very saavy PR move to sign the first NFL coach of Hispanic origin in Miami.

I just popped in here to say that JIM BATES should be your new coach.

Most of us Packer fans wanted him to be OUR new head coach after last season, but the brilliant GM wanted a younger guy.

I think most of the Dolphins players also wanted Bates to get the HC job a few years ago after he was the interim coach for a few months and the team did well for him. For whatever reason, he keeps getting screwed over because of his age or something. Where's Jesse Jackson to push the NFL to hire him?

Anyway, I think Huzenga should have learned his lesson about younger, collegiate hotshot coaches now. Jim Bates is a loyal man, and he has a proven track record in Miami, and Green Bay. I can't imagine a better hire for you guys than Bates.

You still need a new QB though. DC will never ever take you where you want to go.

Interesting angle.
But what would that do, bottom line?
Get more hispanic fans to buy season tickets?
Get more hispanic free agents to come to Miami?
Get better ratings in hispanic markets?

I want to get an offensive coach in here so he lets Capers keep the defense how it is. Rivera would probably try to change it to a Tampa 2 defense and I would cry. I love the defense we have in place right now and I want it to stay. I want to get an offensive minded coach in Miami.

Check out the resume of Norm Chow, it is absolutely fabulous. I think he could be an amazing Head Coach. Keep Capers as the D.C.
