Alabama hires Mario Cristobal as OL Coach

It didn't take long for Nick Saban to find a replacement for former offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland.

With Stoutland leaving the Crimson Tide to take a job with the Philadelphia Eagles, Alabama has hired Mario Cristobal as his replacement, a source inside the program told Alex Scarborough of ESPN's TideNation. CBS Sports originally reported Cristobal's hire. Cristobal is leaving Miami after he was hired in January to be the Hurricanes' tight ends coach and associate head coach. Cristobal was also the head coach at FIU from 2007-12.

Story

Could it be  a sign that Mario knows ish is about to hit the fan at the U and he wants to get out before it does? Or maybe it's about the chance to win a national title even if he's not the HC?

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

No, it's just:

ALABAMA.

Talk about "failing up." Getting fired from FIU may have been the best thing for his career.

I still don't get why people think he's that great. He only had 1 winning season at FIU and they wouldn't even had that if it weren't for Hilton..anyway, he's probably making more as O-line coach that he was as HC at FIU,lol

He's not, but:

Anytime you can get a former head coach as a positional coach = score.

He is a good recruiter, not a good game day coach.

GO OWLS!

Nick Saban is a very smart man. Mario will not only help them as a coach but as a recruiter. Good move . Congrats Mario.

Another reason for the people of Miami to hate the man (Saban)! ;)
