   Alabama reportedly has hired ex- Terp coach D.H. Durkin as a “consultant.”   Caveat emptor!

Nah, it's actually worse than their attempt to hire Hugh Freeze a few years back. Frankly, anyone who thinks hiring DJ Durkin is a good idea, especially this soon after such a massive scandal, is ill-fit to be around adolescents.

A scandal that was caused by his president. Any major football school Prez would have thrown the ESPN article to the "We'll get back with ya". Wally Loh is an idiot and defamed Durkin because he's got no balls. 

And don't give me the " A kid died on his watch bull" Durkin was exonerated totally form the Watlters investigation and had nothing to do with McNair dying. He's the only coach in the past  years that got fired when a player died. And there were plenty that died.

Also, to make matters worse, McNair showed up out of shape, Overweight, on stimulants and did hydrate. He got heatstoke in 82 degrees in May running 10 110 yard sprints with 90 seconds rest in between. 

Saban is smart and if this happened under him, he knows it would be headlines for a few days, then nothing and life goes on.

1. None of the reports "exonerated totally" Durkin from guilt. 2. You blamed the victim and lied in doing so. 3. The scandal was caused by a kid dying. 4. The rest of your post was largely impossible to refute as it was borderline unintelligible (e.g. "He's the only coach in the past years that got fired when a player died." In the past how many years?). 

Really loved how you blamed a kid for his own death btw. Speaks volumes.

Saban released a statement saying DJ isnt on the staff. Also Durkin shouldnt be allowed to coach anywhere below the professional level.

First time I think we've ever agreed on anything on this site provided that by "coach" you also mean "consult."

But he shouldnt consult/coach or lead the glee club at the collegiate level.
