Alabama head coach Nick Saban likely feels a bit blindsided by the decision of his offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian to leave the program just over a month after taking over the job. With Sarkisian on his way to Atlanta, Saban will likely have to cut his vacation short in order to work the phones to gauge interest in the opening on his staff.

Who should Alabama call? The names being floated around on Twitter are all over the place, with most centering on former Oregon head coach Chip Kelly:

USA TODAY’s Dan Wolken notes that Saban met with Chip Kelly before the national championship game against Clemson:

Current USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin would make some sense. He’s from Alabama, played at Tennessee and is very familiar with the offensive systems Lane Kiffin and Sarkisian ran at USC (and since transferred to Tuscaloosa), having worked under Sarkisian and now Clay Helton the past several years.
