LOOK: Alabama fans freaking out on Twitter over report that Steve Sarkisian could be new OC
The Alabama Crimson Tide have been losing assistants at an alarming rate this offseason, but apparently that could soon be changing.
According to a report on Saturday night, former Alabama OC Steve Sarkisian was reported to be considering a return to Tuscaloosa.
Per Albert Breer, Sark was even on campus in Tuscaloosa on Saturday to interview for the open offensive coordinator job — a position he held for the national title game a couple of years ago:
Ex-Falcons OC Steve Sarkisian was on campus at Alabama today, I’m told, interviewing for the offensive coordinator job. @diannaESPN reports he’s headed there.

After watching Sark’s struggles with the Atlanta Falcons the past couple of seasons, Alabama fans weren’t exactly thrilled at the prospect of having Sark back. As you can see below, they took to Twitter to blast the rumors:
Two texts with the same message received within a minute of the other:
“Would Be Saban’s most unpopular hire ever.”
“Would be most disappointing move of his 12 years.”

Alabama fans will never be madder at Saban than if he actually hires Sark as OC. https://t.co/HEvb2vbpvG

So you are telling me Sark couldn’t put Julio in the end zone so you are going to give him control of Tua, Devonta, Jerry, and Jaylen…. pic.twitter.com/sjJFVn7l1a

Sark dipped after one game at Alabama as the OC, ruined the league’s worst offense in Atlanta, and then ends up back at Bama? With this talent, Saban would’ve had his pick for the job and ends up with Sark? That’s horrendous.

Nothing is official yet, but this will seemingly be a move many fans won’t be on board with.
