    Wait, so what happens to Rick S

    If he fired, does he get to interview with Saban. Is his contract terminated. Awesomeee, new GM, new Coach.

    Saban will probably have a courtesy conference with him.

    He is gone IMO.Saban gets total control and he wants his own people he can trust.

    Looks like we are probably going to be drafting a QB. I dont think that Saban is going to stick with Feeley. Rick is probably going to be gone, so the draft isnt going to make him look stupid if we draft a QB. We might trade some players for some picks.

    I was willing to give Spielman another chance. If only for the reason that every move he made in the offseason was with the assumption that Ricky would be here.
    Personally, I'd rather have Childress, because he has seen our QB at his best and know what he's capable of...

    That being said, welcome Saban.:beerbang:

    Spielman is history. I wouldn't count AJ out yet, with good performances he could be kept around next year.

    It has been reported that RS will stay with the Phins, not as GM but still with the team.

    It has been said that RS will stay with the Phins in another job. I think WH likes him and it will give him time to school off of Saban.

    If you think Spielman is going to stay and take a demotion you have lost your mind.

    Rick will quit and go elsewhere.

    I doubt that he will go anywhere, i just dont see it happening. He will take a demotion to a role that he cant do anything and he can only give his assistants to the FO.

    I think WH likes him. I think he stays, not as GM. WH will find a spot for him . Saban runs the team, but WH owns the team. If WH wants RS around ,he will be around.

    They just hired a guy and gave him total control. Now your saying Wayne is going to force Rick down his throat?????? :confused: :confused: :confused: Doesn't work that way.

    Spielman won't take a demotion. His ego won't let him. Nobody's ego would. He is gone.

    I think Rick is gone unless he accepts a demotion to director of pro personnel or something to that nature. I do not know of any past connections between Nick and Rick.

    IMO, Nick will bring in either Floyd Reese, Phil Savage, or Tim Ruskell to run the personnel office. My money is on Reese, though I really like Savage. Ruskell would be a good guy to get as well. I think Reese is going to be the scape goat for Tennessee's troubles this year, and he will be fired. He will then come on board as Saban's top personnel guy.

    I think what the guy means is spielman would be used for input that's it. Nick still has final say

    WH may like him, but he isn't going to force Rick upon Nick. If Nick doesn't want Rick in the front office, Rick isn't going to be in the front office.

    I disagree, at worse AJ is a good back up. He'll stay and Rick can get a ride with Jay Williams or Jay Fiedler.

    Even though Ricky boy is fearing for the loss of his job right now, and will surely suck up to St. Nick....house cleaning is just that...and his head is on the chopping block!

    He'll be gone, along with just about every other current coach. Our roster next season will look much differently. FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!

    Probably other than Bates and maybe a few other D coaches who will be possibly given the option to stay I think the FO and coaching staff are getting their maps and cheese sandwiches...

    If that was the case, Saban would still be at LSU.
