SEC expert and fanboy Paul Finebaum believes that Clemson coach Dabo Swinney will ultimately be the man who replaces Nick Saban at Alabama.
“But I will say this, before anyone says its impossible to replace Nick Saban, I think the only person who can replace Nick Saban is Dabo Swinney,” Finebaum said during a Monday appearance on WJOXs The RoundTable.
This is of course the most obvious choice. Swinney is one of the greatest men to ever coach young men on the gridiron at the college level. He also played at Alabama and was once an assistant there.
I would love to see Dabo go home to Alabama. Will it happen? I dont know, and neither does anybody else. However, he could tear it up if he does head to the SEC. Look at what he has done at Clemson. Alabama has more resources and richer recruiting grounds. If he dominated in the setting of Clemson, I have zero doubt he could easily continue what Saban began at Alabama.
Of course, its going to take a bank vault to lure him away from Clemson. Luckily, that shouldnt be a problem for the Crimson Tide.
