This has been in my had since the Pruitt news a few days ago, and before we get started, I still would love for Pruitt to be out DC, I just don't expect that to happen as of now. We'll start with two guys currently on staff, Travaris Robinson, and Robert Bala. Robinson has coached under some great Defensive coaches during his career, Muschamp, Manny Diaz, and of course.... Nick Saban. Saban seems to trust him a lot since Robinson will be coaching up two position groups this season, he's done a good job with the corners in his first season with Alabama, he's also been a great recruiter for us as well. Wouldn't be shocked at all to see him get the job. Bala, in my opinion, is the least likely of the two to get the nod for the job as of now, he's entering his first season as the ILB's coach, and I'm excited to see what he can do with the group. If he can get 2-3 seasons in, and show he can develop linebackers who are all Americans yearly, maybe a Butkus winner or two, and has frequent 1st and 2nd round draft picks at his position, he could get the get the job. He's also shown he's gonna be a strong recruiter for us as well, he's been putting in work since he got here, and has landed some good talent already. There's also off chance candidates like Aranda, or Venables if they get fired before Steele retires, or is let go. I do not expect either of those programs to fire them, but you never know. Go ahead and cross Schumann out, he seemingly turned us down already, so the only way he comes here is if it's for the Head coaching job, same with Leonhard. There's gonna be a good deal of candidates if/when Steele retires after this season, just a topic I wanted to discuss.
