Looks like the contact with Chow was not substantial...it did happen, but it was either consultation or checking potential interest.
I am hearing Chris Hatcher's name a whole lot. There may be something to it...it is still early and Saban plays his assistant hires close to the vest. I knew about almost everyone who was interviewed for the staff, but nothing about who was hired until it happened.
Hatcher is a candidate though and interest is high.
