Bill O'Brien ripped on social media following Alabama's scoreless first half vs. Auburn
Bill O’Brien is in his first year as Alabama’s offensive coordinator. Even though the numbers say it’s going well, fans feel differently.
That only intensified on Saturday during the first half of the Iron Bowl, as Alabama was held scoreless and now trails 7-0 at the intermission.
As you might expect, Alabama fans weren’t thrilled with the first-year coordinator’s performance. Below, you can see the reaction to the first-half shutout on Twitter:
Bill O'Brien is a high school OS trying to run a pro style passing offense with college players….

Bill O’Brien is the most incompetent coach in CFB right now and #2 isn’t close. We are getting destroyed on the right side & he has made ZERO adjustments.
Nick Saban can call me a spoiled Bama fan all he wants, but BoB makes too much $ for this shit.

Fire Bill O’Brien. Fire Pete Golding. Fire Doug Marrone

Bill O'brien going to be looking for work from half-time. Telling people he is being lined up to take over from Belichick again no doubt.

Doug Marrone and Bill O’Brien will go down as the two worst hires of the Saban era… behind Golding of course

Nick Saban may replace Bill O'Brien with Dan Mullen at halftime.

O’Brien has been connected to open jobs around the country this coaching carousel season. For now, though, he has his hands full at his current job.
