Declined Jimbo's offer to coach at FSU.
Well yea that's a step down
Thread is funny: when I asked abt this the other night, Burns wasn't a big loss because he was close to retirement.
Now, FSU was a step down for him (actually a lateral move and may be a boost in pay).
It made sense for him to stay there: he had time built up, he will get a bump in his salary and he faces no challenges there (just to maintain the current great level of RB play).
Congrats to him. He made the best decision for him and his family.
RB coach at a university that wins National Champions or RB coach at a university that underachieves
Yes it's a step down
Must have not had a real FSU offer IMO. They must have backed off. Oh well, back to sucking balls FSU
"Because Bama now sucks just like FSU used to suck when we were getting dominated by OU. Does it make sense now?"- Sliger (FSU Fan)
How exactly does one win "National Champions?" I always thought they were "national titles".
Again, congrats to the coach for making the best decision for him & his family. Obviously, he is a class above some of the fans of his school.
It was a lateral move. The only reason for him leaving would be getting worn down of working for Saban, or higher pay, which Bama would match whatever FSU offered. If Burns left it would be due to mutual feelings on both end IMO.
Burns is a very good coach and glad he's staying at UA.
Methinks all these coaches know something about FSU. Seems like an awful lot of coaches took whatever offer was out there to get away from Jimbo.
Happy days are here again!!!!
As Bama Fan let me go on Record. It would have hurt if he left for FSU. Plain and Simple.
What??? You do realize that every one of the coaches that left FSU left for a better position and/ or more money, right? How does that equate to taking whatever offer is out there?
QB's are more important that WR's. Therefore, Dameyune Craig took a step down to leave. Mark Stoops went to where careers go to die. Eddie Gran took a big step back, title be damned.
Craig took more money and went back to coach at his Alma Mater. Stoops got a HC job and took Eliot (our DE coach) with him to be his Defensive Coordinator. Gran (our RB coach) got an OC job at Cincy and Hudson (our LB coach) left for a DC job at Purdue. I am not sure how that would be classified as taking a step back for anyone except possibly Craig (although from what I have read he got a 150K bump in salary and let's be honest- Jimbo coaches the QBs).
However do not let the facts stop you from bashing FSU.......carry on.
Wanted him, didn't get him. Bama wins again.
Lol @ these type of Bama fans, enjoy the ride with Saban while it lasts because after its over you will suck again just like before Saban got there.
What an inbred
Wow you are a tool
Or we'll hire another great coach who would love te opportunity to come in and coach all the talent Saban leaves behind. F'ing inbred.

You aren't allowed to say anything negative about Alabama for the next year.
You talked, your team walked, and both ended up with an ass raping. Any negative comment coming from a ND fan means exactly what to us? You shouldn't have even been on that field. The pure disappointment is mind boggling. I at least wanted to play a decent team. Your team is full of posers.
you realize you just got trolled by an FSU fan right?
FSU Ambassador to the masses
No I did not but it wouldn't be the first time.
Could have sworn that he was a Notre Dame fan. Shows how much I listen to him when he posts I guess.
Edit: Yeah just looked at his avatar. God I feel like a jackass . Oh well, it's not the first nor will it be the last time this happens.

Dude you looked at my avatar, it's of Peter Warrick, if you don't know who that is you shouldn't be allowed to post for a year on sheer embarassment
I'm not sure what point you are trying to make.
I thought you were a ND fan and I just looked at your avatar. I then noticed it was Warrick and that you were an FSU fan. Hence the feeling like a jackass comment. What did you think I meant by that?
Or are you just trying to be a dick for the sheer point of it no matter what I said?
FSU taking all the small victories they can these days.
People don't actually believe things like this, do they?
