THE TRUTH ON ALABAMA COACHING SEARCH
A flurry of activity has led some to conclude that a deal between Alabama and Mountaineers HC Rich Rodriguez is imminent.
However, in a shocking development, Cock & Fire has learned that there is indeed a mystery candidate for the job with ties to South Carolina, and he will be offered the job tomorrow.
Roll Crimthon Tide.
"I'm very exthited about thith wonderful opportunity," Lou Holtz told C&F in an exclusive interview. "I've alwayth rethpected the tradition of Alabama, and thith is a great chanthe to revive yet another proud team from thome troublethome timeth."
Alabama Athletics Director Mal Moore was enthusiastic about reaching a deal with Holtz.
"I've said all along that we were looking for a proven head coach with a proven record of achievement who can reach the level of excellence that all of us desire," Moore said. "Coach Holtz will do that for two years before leading the program into mediocrity and then leaving before NCAA sanctions come crashing down."
Holtz said he was already beginning to think of what could be done with the Tide's players.
"Imagine John Parker Wilthon running three conthecutive quarterback drawth," Holtz said. "It thould work beautifully.
"And if not, there'th alwayth the jump ball."
Not sure about this QB draw talk.
Holtz said he hasn't yet decided which potential all-conference running back he will chase away from the program with an inexplicable benching.
