Remember how Bear Bryant used to stockpile more players than he’d ever need, just to keep them out of the hands of rival programs? It looks like Nick Saban’s taking a page out of the same book, albeit with a twist: he’s collecting recruiting coordinators.
Ole Miss’ coordinator of recruiting development Tyler Siskey — who was AJ McCarron’s quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator during his four-year stint at Mobile’s St. Paul’s Episcopal School — is set to take a position on Nick Saban’s support staff at Alabama, a source confirmed to AL.com.
It’s unknown what title Siskey, a 35-year-old Anniston native, will hold with the Crimson Tide.
Keep in mind this move comes a week after the NCAA’s Rules Working Group announced its intention to suspend Prop. No. RWG-11-2, “which eliminated the definition of recruiting coordination functions that must be performed only be a head or assistant coach, be suspended until appropriate modifications can be made.” So either ol’ Nick is skeptical they’re going to go through with the suspension, or he just doesn’t care. Either way, Ole Miss is down a guy.
