Lane Kiffin is officially gone, and it looks like college football teams are looking to pluck some of the remaining top-level assistants at Alabama.
According to FootballScoop.com, both Oregon and Florida are in hot pursuit of Alabama offensive line coach Mario Cristobal, potentially for the same position at both schools. Football Scoop is reporting that Oregon and new head coach Willie Taggart have potenially made an offer to Taggart, but that Cristobal has yet to accept.
Cristobal is a commodity for more than just his coaching abilities; he’s been Alabama’s lead recruiter in Florida in recent years, having experience there as an assistant for Miami and as a head coach for Florida International. Cristobal has been a candidate for several positions in recent years, but Nick Saban has done his best to keep him in Tuscaloosa.
Cristobal is currently expected to stay with Alabama through the national title game against Clemson before making a decision.
