With the latest round of head coaching changes in the SEC, that means the rest of the league has now had 43 different head coaches since Nick Saban arrived at Alabama in 2007. Yes — 43. Nine of the other 13 schools have had at least 3 coaches, Arkansas and Tennessee each with 5.
“But I don’t look (at the last two losses to Alabama) like it’s a major scar. Our players know they went toe-to-toe with the gorilla. There’s more of a sense of frustration, to me, that we know we are just as good and just as physical as them. We just haven’t been able to close it out.” — Kirby Smart, ESPN, 8/12/19
