More assistants news this morning...
According to The Birmingham News, Coach Saban has hired Todd Alles, a program assistant at Ohio State, for the position of director of football operations. He has been with Coach Tressell for the last two seasons and will take over for Randy Ross.

Word is that Alabama has also rescinded its offer to Jimbo Fisher, who is apparently having trouble deciding what he wants to do next season (many believe he is waiting for either the Louisville head coaching job or the Georgia Tech head coaching job).

Next on the list is the possibility of three current Louisville offensive assistants joining the staff, according to The Tuscaloosa News. We can thank for showing us that the University plane has made a trip to Louisville, KY lately. One would only assume for assistant coaches. Paul Petrino is a candidate to take over as offensive coordinator, while Mike Summers could be headed here to coach the offensive line. The third possibility is coach Todd Brohm for quarterbacks coach.

Saban contacted Lane Kiffin, USC's co-offensive coordinator, on Friday according to the Los Angeles Times. It is very unlikely that he'll be joining the staff.

On a side anybody else still as happy as I am? This coach is just about as professional as they come. He works hard and doesn't put up with any crap. He sets rules and abides by them.

Also, Saban will not attend the American Football Coaches Association convention in San Antonio, Texas because he's working on recruiting and assembling a staff. Mal Moore will not be attending the National Championship game and the College Football banquet so that he can assist Coach Saban with whatever he needs during this time.

You've gotta love that.
