Bruce Feldman refers to it as “Mel Tucker’s defense”.

Kirby specifically called the D Mel Tucker’s defense in his press conference yesterday.
He’s make that point repeatedly, yet it still seems like he’s the one running the show on the defensive sideline.
Or maybe he’s running it like Saban runs his sideline, where he’s heavily involved but ultimately let’s the assistant coach make the final call.
Whatever it is, I’m enjoying the results.
Kirby’s the head coach, so he is the big winner. Still, as DC at Bama, it was the HC’s defense. Now as HC, it’s the DC’s defense.
Gotta love public perception.
