Applewhite Staying

Alabama Offensive Coordinator Major Applewhite appears to be staying in Tuscaloosa for at least one more year. From Ian Rapoport of the Birmingham News:

Alabama offensive coordinator Major Applewhite told a key recruit that he’s not leaving for another job.

Star Jackson, a coveted quarterback from Palm Beach, Fla., told The Birmingham News that Applewhite informed him Thursday night that “he’s not leaving. He’s going to stick there. The only way he’s leaving is if he gets fired.”

Jackson’s in-home visit from Applewhite on Thursday night lasted past midnight.

So, it seems that we’ll at least have Major around for another year. Who knows where Houston will be going next for their vacancy.

By the way, I would like to thank the folks at The Big Lead for linking to my site earlier today.

    That’s a good call for him and for us. He obviously is very talented, but he’s not ready for that next step and it could destroy his career if he makes it too soon. And for all the accolades this class is getting right now, QB is a desperate need and Jackson is the only one filling it.
