Dear Nick Saban, Hire Hugh Freeze


This week, Alabama head coach Nick Saban met with former Ole Miss head coach, Hugh Freeze for the offensive coordinator position. While the position eventually went to current wide receivers coach, Mike Locksley, Freeze is still available, and willing to be a part of the Crimson Tide’s staff.

For Saban, this is an easy decision. Sure, he may need to keep an eye on the phone log every now and then, but in terms of the offensive prowess Freeze possesses, it makes perfect sense to bring him in to help with the development of Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts.

When Freeze was at Ole Miss, he was able to bring life to a program almost destroyed by Houston Nutt. What he was able to do with Bo Wallace was nothing short of a miracle when he made him look like Tom Brady against the Tide in 2014.

While Locksley will orchestrate the offense, Freeze will work great as an offensive analyst, just like Steve Sarkisian in 2016.

Knowing Saban, he will methodically weigh the pros and cons and pull the trigger soon. If so, Alabama will again have plenty to look forward to offensively in 2018.
