I really, really wish I could stop seeing these Greg McGarity comments.
“We had to learn what it meant to compete at that level,” McGarity said. “We needed some direction, too. We needed help in understanding what it took to compete at the highest level. He hadn’t been in the chair [at Alabama], but it was pretty doggone close to the head coach’s chair. I think Coach Saban had allowed him to learn and to be a part of the inner workings of his program.”
They’re paying a guy more than half a million dollars a year to learn from his newbie head coach how to run a football program successfully.
As I am wont to say, that’s a helluva way to run a railroad.
