Report: Saban interested in Gase, O’Brien for OC role
Nick Saban is reportedly interested in discussing Alabama’s vacant offensive coordinator job with fired NFL head coaches Adam Gase and Bill O’Brien.
According to a report from The Athletic, Gase and O’Brien are “two of the coaches Nick Saban is considering for Alabama’s soon to be vacant offensive coordinator role.”
Gase was a graduate assistant under Saban at LSU. O’Brien, who coached with the New England Patriots before jumping to the college ranks at Penn State and then to the Houston Texans, also has ties to Saban.
Steve Sarkisian serves his final game as offensive coordinator on Jan. 11 in the College Football Playoff national championship game against Ohio State. Sarkisian was hired as the new head coach at Texas.
Offensive coordinator at Alabama has been a springboard job for other coaches, including Lane Kiffin, Doug Nussmeier, Jim McElwain and Major Applewhite.
