Former Florida International University head coach Mario Cristobal is now a former University of Miami coach as well after accepting the job of offensive line coach at the University of Alabama.
University of Miami Hurricanes assistant football coach Mario Cristobal is in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and was expected to interview for the Crimson Tide’s vacant offensive line coaching position, according to a report from 247sports.com.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban had made it look easy since taking over the Tide, leading the team to three national championships in four years thanks to Monday night’s shellacking of Notre Dame. But for Saban, the time to celebrate is brief as he’s already looking to next season.
When Alabama took its opening drive and ran right through Notre Dame’s defense in the BCS National Championship Game Monday night, little did the more than 80,000 fans at Sun Life Stadium know it was the beginning of a massive crimson tidal wave.
Well, if that absolute mauling of the Fighting Irish didn’t prove that 1.) Notre Dame isn’t back; 2.) Notre Dame doesn’t belong on the field with the SEC Champion; and 3.) the SEC is the best conference by leaps and bounds in college football nothing will. It’s a post-BCS edition of the Agenda today.
Alabama rolled to its second consecutive BCS championship, and third in four seasons, beating No. 1 Notre Dame 42-14 in a BCS championship game that was no classic after all.
The Alabama Crimson Tide enter the Bowl Championship Series national championship game with most oddsmakers and media pundits picking them to beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. But if there’s one thing the BCS has taught everyone is that its full of surprises.
The term dynasty gets thrown around in sports a lot, but for the Alabama Crimson Tide, a victory in Monday’s Bowl Championship Series national championship game would cement the team’s legacy in history.
When the Alabama Crimson Tide and Notre Dame Fighting Irish take the field Monday night at Sun Life Stadium to battle it out for the BCS National Championship; a storied, but one-sided rivalry will be rekindled between two teams that are both beloved and hated by football fans.
Sometimes, the buildup to a game can overwhelm what actually happens on the field. Certainly, No. 1 Notre Dame and No. 2 Alabama would have to play nothing less than a classic to live up to all the hype for Monday night’s BCS championship.
