Add Charlie Strong to the long list of coaches who went to Nick Saban to get their careers rehabbed. It’s a smart move.

Nick Saban does two things really well when it comes to football. He wins games and he makes coaches hirable again.

Look no further than Lane Kiffin for a perfect example of how Saban’s rehabilitation program can work. Kiffin was down and out, went to Alabama and is now the head coach at Ole Miss.

His program for fired coaches works wonders.

If Strong is able to hang around Nick Saban at Alabama for a couple successful years, then he’ll get another crack at being a head coach again.

This is a great decision from Strong to join the Crimson Tide.
