It would give us more ammo for Bama, if nothing else.
Interesting point. I can see that as a good argument in recruiting. "Our OC has as much, if not more, NFL experience than Saban, was left to clean up Saban's mess at Miami, and oh yeah, helped groom a QB named Brees that Saban passed on while at Miami."
That would at least counter the current thinking/myth that Saban's Alabama program is the most NFL like in the SEC.
I don't know how much any individual coach's presence sways a recruit. My guess is it's only a small piece of the overall package that a recruit an his family use to make the decision. Still, I think Cameron's presence would only be a positive in the recruiting process.
Sean Payton, while at the Giants, was benched from the very job that he's now considered a wizard at. Look at Bill Belichick and the Browns, Pete Carroll and the Patriots. NFL Coaches get fired and hired all the time.
Cameron being fired from the Ravens doesn't bother me. His body of work outweighs any one season for me.
