Alabama coach Nick Saban’s retirement set off a chain reaction that figures to affect the 2024 Southeastern Conference, Big 12 and Big Ten football standings. What part of the coaching carousel will have the most impact? 

(2:45): Is Kalen DeBoer a culture fit at Alabama? Berry Tramel: “The geography is a question. This is a guy that’s never coached … south of Carbondale, Illinois. The south of Illinois is a little of Southern culture but it’s not Tuscaloosa.”

(3:14): Why Bryan Harsin is a test case, but Auburn is not Alabama.

(4:20): Jenni Carlson: Why Steve Sarkisian would have been a good option

(6:30): Kalen DeBoer’s track record shows he’s equipped to leverage the transfer portal, with Michael Penix and an Oklahoma State transfer as examples.

(6:58): Jenni Carlson on ways the transfer portal hurt teams like Alabama instead of helping them.

(10:30): Why Berry Tramel says he’s disbarred from commenting on new Washington coach Jedd Fisch’s football acumen.

(11:20): Why Fisch’s departure is great news for Mike Gundy and Oklahoma State.

(13:40): Did Lance Leopold really turn down Washington to stay in Kansas and what does that tell us about Leopold and the state of Kansas football?

(17:45): Who benefits more: OU from Saban’s retirement or OSU from Fisch’s Arizona departure?
