TAMPA, Fla.– Jalen Hurts may be the new kid on the block at Alabama, but the 6-2, 210 pound quarterback from Channelview, Tex. has chance to enhance the Tide’s rich history Monday when undefeated 14-0 SEC champion Alabama plays ACC champion Clemson (13-1) in a rematch of last year’s College Football Playoff championship game Clemson at Raymond James Stadium.
Sarkisian was planning to spend this season out of coaching and accepted a job with Fox Sports to be part of their college football coverage. He never worked any games for FS1, instead taking the job with Alabama as a behind the scenes analyst a week after the Tide’s season-opening win over USC, breaking down film and helping with the game plan. Sarkisian couldn’t do any coaching in practice and he quickly found how much he missed being a coach.
