The Alabama Crimson Tide football team has been in the news a lot recently mainly because both their defensive and offensive coordinators departed.

One name that has popped up recently in the offensive coordinator search is former Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Kingsbury, who was fired by the Cardinals, immediately left for Thailand and hasn’t said a word since. It doesn’t mean he’s not coming back but would he be interested in the Alabama job?

Kingsbury was the guy who got Patrick Mahomes to the NFL and made Johnny Maziel a Heisman winner while he was at Texas A&M. He knows what he is doing and before he left for the Cardinals, he was hired as the offensive coordinator of the USC Trojans.

The only question is, does Kingsbury want to come back to the college game? If he is smart and wants to be a head coach again, he’ll contact Nick Saban himself and show interest.

Under Saban, coaches like Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian were able to become head coaches again after their failures on the pro and college level.

Other names being mentioned for this position are former Florida head coach Dan Mullen and Oklahoma offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby.
