I thought I was looking at a 10th or 11th grader.feedback

It's really how they take it. If someone gets an offer and they think they don't have to work hard anymore and take the foot off the gas, then I think it is something that happened too soon. But if they take it that, I want to live up to this,' and keep going and get better, then I don't think it's too soon.feedback

One of our defensive leaders said, You know, Coach, we don't really feel you on defense. Offensive players are always on your couch, watching TV, playing video games in your office. You have that relationship with them and not with us.' I really hadn't thought about the individual players caring about the head coach's attention. Now I'm able to sit in meetings on defense. Kids have problems, I can spend more time with them.feedback

Sep 01 2017

Saban's really just talking through what he's thinking. So we can hear him, so he can hear himself. And it's gonna be slow.feedback

Sep 01 2017

Coach Saban said something to me, which I really get now: 'You're not here to judge the program. You're here to do what I say.feedback

Sep 01 2017

I'm not a giant shoe person. I just know kids like 'em, and I'm not supposed to get 'em dirty.feedback

Sep 01 2017

Where I've changed is, I slow down. At first, at Alabama, I didn't get it. I was like 'God, these meetings take forever.feedback

Sep 01 2017

They say, like, you never know why things happen. Like blessings in disguise. You know what I didn't realize at the time is a really good blessing, is that I was a really crappy player. In college I was so mad I wasn't playing. The two guys in front of me were Billy Volek and David Carr, but I just realized that was a blessing in disguise, that I was so bad and I never played, so my brain's good.feedback

Sep 01 2017

I don't sit here and say, OK, I'm figuring out whether to do something, what's the media gonna say? And a lot of people think that way. I don't think that way.feedback

Aug 31 2017

I really don't feel like I'm back to being a head coach. I've done it before for so long that it's just kind of like, you're doing it again. But I do think that I'm much more prepared this time, having spent three years with Coach Saban, learning from him.feedback

It's no disrespect to Steve. No matter who it was, you've been there all year long. You've been there for the quarterback. You're all he knew. You were undefeated together. We've won (26) straight games together. You feel like, okay, it's different.feedback

Aug 31 2017

It was rough. It got really rough when you watched the game. At first, the idea of, Okay, do your job. Focus on this one.' But really when you watched it, and because they lost, and it was so close.feedback

Aug 23 2017

He's a coach's dad just like mine, and I told him that his son is doing a really good job, which all dads, especially coach's dads, love to hear. It's no different than when you call a player's parent and tell them their son is doing well. And in the course of that, I've asked him a few questions because it's obviously his [offensive] system that he's run for years. So I've asked him a couple of questions about alignments of players or something like that.feedback

Kendal sent his dad our spring game to let him see how he was calling plays and running the system. I have not spoken to [Art Briles] about him watching that film. It was just his son sending his dad film so he could see what he was doing, nothing more than that.feedback

I said, I'll sign it, but I don't think I can really write 'Roll Tide' on this picture.feedback

I really don't look at it that way about helping our program. It's about helping these kids come here and get to know these coaches. They may see somebody out at Michigan and you say well how are you getting them the scholarships? Well that assistant coach may get a head job at some smaller school and remember a kid from this and that may end up being his only offer. We're glad we can help them.feedback

Apr 22 2017

I feel really good about it.feedback

Apr 22 2017

There's the good with the bad. Yeah, the stadium's not going to be filled 30 minutes before kickoff no matter what, whether you're the Dolphins or whether you're the L.A. Lakers. The good part of that is you're in a city where there's a lot to do, so there's a lot of things going on ... a great place to live. Now we've got to start winning some games, so that we get more people to come to the games.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I'm looking down there and trying to figure out what you're doing. If you're going to change it up, run it by me.feedback

Apr 21 2017

Sometimes, you need to learn from your mistakes. I guess we kind of went backward. Usually, you start and move your way up as head coach and you make your mistakes where no one really sees them, but we made those mistakes at an early stage and on a national stage. It is what it is, but at the same time, there are things that you are going to change, too, to get better as a head coach.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I got a little too loose with my mouth. We joke about Coach Saban and my time there, but how dumb would I be not to copy a lot of what Nick Saban did? He's the best head coach in college football right now, and the good thing for me is that I've had a chance to work now for Coach Saban and Pete Carroll, two guys who do it totally different, and I can combine the two and take the parts I like from both and use them here at Florida Atlantic.feedback

Apr 21 2017

And it became a one-play game, so of course your mind goes, Well, would it have made a difference [if I were there]? The hardest part was seeing Jalen's [Hurts] face, Reuben Foster, ArDarius Stewart.feedback

Apr 21 2017

It will be a lot like what you see at Alabama with the defense there under Coach Saban. Sure, Coach Saban is involved in preparing the game plan each week, but he also realizes that he needs to be more of an overseer of the program. He lets his coaches coach. Now, as you saw on Saturdays with the two of us on the sideline, he's going to voice his opinion, a lot of times loudly. But I was the one calling plays, and it will be the same thing here with Kendal.feedback

Apr 21 2017

As I've said many times, there weren't a lot of people knocking on my door when Coach Saban offered me a job, so I will always be appreciative of him and having had the opportunity to work and learn under him. How dumb would I be not to copy a lot of what Nick Saban did?feedback

Apr 21 2017

It's nice to hear a little music on the practice field. That didn't happen in Tuscaloosa.feedback

Apr 21 2017

There's not a day that I come to work that I'm thinking about money or that I'm making less money than I've made in the business in the last 10 years.feedback

Apr 21 2017

But we are not going to change who we are, either.feedback

Apr 15 2017

This is the day that is probably going to go down as the day the fortune of the Browns turn. If we are able to do it, this is going to be one of those steppingstone days.feedback

Jan 04 2017

But not here. We just go out and practice and do exactly what we've been doing all year. It's just a new voice. That's it.feedback

Jan 03 2017

We had a great relationship. It just kept getting better and better as time went. Obviously the success on the field was fun and the players that we were able to coach in our three years in one of the greatest runs in the history of college football. And one more game to finish it.feedback

Jan 03 2017

I don't know if that's part of it or not. But I didn't want to have that feeling and if it was, and we lost the game because I wasn't 100 percent focused on our players, I didn't have them in the best position to win, I couldn't live with that.feedback

Jan 03 2017

I know this was a decision that I came up with, and it was very difficult to do. This was not something that Nick Saban forced me to do by any means. If I wanted to coach this game, I would have coached this game, and I just thought that it wasn't the best thing for the players.feedback

Jan 02 2017

I don't recall a happy moment.feedback

Jan 02 2017

It "was a very difficult decision, but it's a decision made in the best interests of the program.feedback

Dec 03 2016

I don't want to talk about it right now. I just want to enjoy winning another SEC championship.feedback
