In the latest examples of Alabama coach Nick Saban plucking well-known coaches from across college football, and this time the NFL, to round out his coaching staff, Paul Finebaum gave him credit for developing a successful track record.

The SEC Network host weighed in on Bill O’Brien and Doug Marone being hired as Alabama’s new offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. The two recently fired NFL head coaches are the latest example of coaches looking for a fresh start and getting a career rest in Tuscaloosa.

Finebaum shared these thoughts during his regular appearance on “The Roundtable” on WJOX 94.5 in Birmingham, Alabama.

“I give him a really high grade. But you do pay for this sometimes,” Finebaum said Monday during his weekly appearance on WJOX-FM. “You don’t know. We see in every industry, doesn’t matter corner store, department store, radio, TV or coaching. Hiring is always difficult and you never know when you’re going to get it right. Saban has a phenomenal track record and that track record ends up costing him in the end because his coaches do so well that they bail out. But I like this staff.”

Saban has such a command of the hiring market that he can attract multiple coaches with many years of NFL experience.

“You can tell Saban went heavy on experience with (Bill) O’Brien and (Doug) Marrone,” Finebaum said. “That’s unique. Only Nick Saban can get away with that. He has such a farm system, to say the least. He walks into that room whether it’s real or imagined, all these former head coaches sitting in their kindergarten desks waiting to be called into the big room. He never has to call up a search firm and say ‘Hey can you find me an offensive line coach.’ They’re already waiting there or he knows where they are.”
