I can’t help but wonder if Greg McGarity once asked a question like that back in 2014 and got something like this in response from his favorite assistant coach at the time.
The other benefit comes when it is time to hit the recruiting trail. Only the nine full-time assistants can recruit.
“We get done playing Florida in the SEC Championship Game, immediately we’re on the road recruiting,” Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt said. “Well, somebody’s got to be breaking down Washington, Ohio State, Clemson. Those guys do a job from a breakdown standpoint so when you walk in they can hand it to it you and say, ‘Hey, this is kind of what these guys do.’ “
No doubt Greg’s seen the light these days.
