For several months the Alabama football fan base has had two opposing camps. One wants Pete Golding to be fired. The other trusts Nick Saban and is content with either a retain or terminate decision by the head coach. A small and not very vocal few think, given an injury-depleted roster, Pete Golding’s abilities have not been fairly measured.
The ‘fire Pete immediately’ group has media cohorts who loudly champion the termination argument. Stepping back from the fray, a question can be posed. How valuable is coaching staff continuity?
After Alabama football was not just soundly defeated, but embarrassed by Clemson, coaching turnover was blamed.
