I sure hope so. He has done a fantastic job as both a position coach and a recruiter. I am pretty sure he is one of the lowest paid members of the coaching staff. I hope Bama tops whatever FSU may be offering.

I think the interest is about more than money. He wants a reduced road workload (constantly out recruiting and wants more time at home with family). Any offer will be matched or topped financially. My concern is whether or not Saban is willing to give one of his better recruiters less road time.
If next year is expected to be his last anyway then wouldn't it have made more sense to let him go and grab his replacement? He's the main LA recruiter and we have some big fish we're trying to snag. It's tough to get those kids if their recruiter/position coach won't be there
