    This would frankly surprise me. Why would you let Enos leave in order to bring Sark back? Makes no sense, unless Enos wanted out.

    Steve Sarkisian: While Sark was offered the offensive coordinator job on Kliff Kingsbury’s staff in Arizona, Dianna Russini tweets that Sark will head back to Alabama to join Nick Saban’s staff.

    “Can confirm ex Falcons OC & #Alabama play-caller Steve Sarkisian is in Tuscaloosa now but not certain if any deal is in place yet to make him the Tide offensive coordinator. (Dianna Russini 1st reported about his return to the Tide staff.)”

    His offense was 6th in the NFL in total yards this year.

    But he never really used Julio Jones as best he could.

    What was Atlanta’s offense the few years before Sark was their OC? Haven’t they had a really potent offense for a while now?

    Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chip Long visited Alabama on Saturday to speak with coach Nick Saban about a position with the Crimson Tide, according to AL.com. This on the heels of Steve Sarkisian appearing to be headed back to Alabama where he was previously an offensive analyst and briefly a coordinator.

    Regarding Long, AL.com reports that he "could join the staff in some capacity even if/when Sarkisian is hired as offensive coordinator." Long, an Alabama native, has spent the past two seasons coaching the Fighting Irish offense.”

    To get both of them would be formidable.

    Lifelong falcons fan and watch every snap I can tell u without any hesitation that’s a hollow stat, oddness was disjointed and often incited chest pains watching it. No rhythm , often no flow at all. It was night and day watching Shannahans o’s compared to the same pieces with sark

    Agree. It looked like he was filling a quota sheet when getting Julio the ball opposed to it being a cohesive game plan. That’s the best offensive unit in the nfl and it’s hard to make it look as mediocre as he did. That being said I’m sure he will do fine if he ends up at Bama

    Reminds me of the Yankees. Sounds like it on paper. Does it actually work in practice?

    Update> Tim Prister, senior editor of Irish Illustrated, reports this morning Chip Long will not be going to Alabama.

    We are confirming that he is not going to Alabama. That is all we can confirm at this moment. Tyler Irish on Twitter

    Looks like Cutty will be the new Bama OC. Also, (hold your chuckles :D) Nick is trying to find a real assistant spot for Butch, he will get to turn in the car wash bucket..

    Jones was off the field in the red zone a lot under Sark.

    Life is much less stressful for the OC when your players are better than the opposing D 95% of the snaps over the entire season.

    Sark can do his two seasons at Bama, shine, and pick up a HC position again.

    Sark had a lot of injuries wth Falcons. Ultimately it is Ryan that had to throw to Jones. Sark is better coach than given credit for

    Saban has had so many coaches come and go, mostly to better gigs although I know Saban essentially fired a few guys without it being seen as such. IMV it has been impressive what he's done as far as bringing in coaches and managing his staff-plugging holes while keeping his team on top. Lets be honest, assistant coaches and staff chemistry is crucial to staying on top. Most coaches have no clue who to hire when they lose a good>great assistant.

    So having said all that, would Sark back to Bama signal that Saban is out of ideas, his coaching well has run dry or can Sark actually do the job well but is a guy with a spotted past?

    I remember fondly when Sark was a call-in guest to Kiffin’s Krimson Korner.
