Georgia football’s staff continuity will help, but don’t expect that to last forever

ATHENS — Nick Saban doesn’t like to dwell on success, so good news: When he gets his Alabama staff together he doesn’t have to pass out national championship rings. He can pass out name tags.

Saban’s staff has experienced a remarkable staff turnover since winning the national championship on Jan. 8. But that’s nothing new, and it’s a lesson going forward for those who follow Kirby Smart and Georgia as the Bulldogs ascend into the same top echelon.

Someone in the industry pointed this out to me this week: Tosh Lupoi is the only assistant coach remaining from the Alabama staff that won the national championship in 2016. Since then Saban has brought in nine new assistants, in part to replace four assistants who left for jobs as head coaches: Smart, Jeremy Pruitt, Lane Kiffin and Mario Cristobal.
